Hi everyone,

Is it right that Volvo 760 2.3 turbo LPG urban consumption for 100 km is 23 liters?

UK consumption can be as low as 20 MPG around town and can be as high as 40MPG is driven very carefully on the open road.

Typical mixed consumption should be between 25 and 30 MPG

For LPG you will need to allow for around 10% more LPG usage

So it is too much i recon. But what else could be wrong. All ignition components are new (plugs, leads, cap, rotor), also air filter. LPG system components are also new. Could it be catalytic converter is stuffed?

That's very bad. With an artic unit and a 13.5m fridge trailer running nearly empty I can do 24L/100km on a run.

23 litres must be just over 12 (imperial) mpg off the top of my head.
