I should have read this post first! D'oh! Sounds very nice and such low mileage for a '91. Not a bad price either. Good luck with the sale Rob. Bit too old for me to consider as I have the Low emission zone looming.
Have you guy's ever thought of going down the LPG route? My wife has a 3litre twin turbo Volvo XC90 that does no more than 24mpg if you drive it like a vicar. We had LPG installed and at 70p a litre its as economical as the diesel version financially but with 274bhp and a quieter and smoother engine. You can buy LPG readily, get £10 discount on road tax and free access to low emission zone. The downside is your can't go on the Chunnel, but you can still use a ferry.
Join the club. Lindsey's is twin turbo (running on LPG), and my car is twin turbo (Lotus Carlton) so we too have a turbo fetish! My old car was a Volvo T5 turbo running LPG too. Turbo doesn't mean you can't run LPG.
Had thought of a conversion on my 2.0l petrol Autosleeper but was advised on the whole AGAINST it due to costs prohibiting actual savings, Scotland certainly doesn't have that many lpg pumps which would also be an issue, so we decided against the 2.0l easily against all comments returned 30 ish if driven mostly in 5th between 50 - 60 which quite frankly in a lwb hi-top was more than enough anyway !! But I'm with you on the smooth running over the diesels (having owned then all almost now) and would probably go the petrol route again except I'm out of T's for life or I'm divorced (lol)
Nice bus btw
T4/T5 Club UK and its domains are currently up for sale due to severe illness of its owner, if you beleive you have what it takes to run it get in touch TODAY (note the community is NOT at risk and will continue in any situation)
Our Volvo XC90 has paid back in 18 months. Very rarely struggle to find gas stations, and generally fill up whenever I see it in places where I don't know LPG station locations. We also have all the stations loaded into the sat nav (supplied by Autogas) which allows you to find nearest station. I much prefer LPG to Diesel (although would never convert the Carlton). You do have to watch the valve seats to make sure they aren't too soft, althoiugh you can get an auto lube system but this obviously extends the pay back period.
