hi,
go on my friend no problem at all in SX4 for lpg. I have converted one SX4 and it has excellent result. You will get minimum power loss in it than any other car converted on lpg. Its engine design system is very suitable to run on lpg.Its air filter design and ignition system are very gas fuel friendly.i have converted it on just odo reading of 536.
but do consider warranty issue. my personal advice is that u will do more saving by using lpg as fuel which in turn is ur warrenty. understand my point. and there are very few benefits of modern warranty with that * sign and terms and condition. its not that much benefited to u than savings on using lpg.
as ajo told, there is no approval of rto for it and it will take some time. i have converted is as no traffic police will stop the car of this segment for gas kit check.
furthur its your choice

The FE conscious person should wait for the SX4 diesel, is what I am saying. Diesels rule !! Buckingham palace be damned !

Never liked the LPG vehicles, that is why. Ignore my opinion, I am just a Common rail diesel fan speaking.
