i have heard lots of people having problems with Ikon after installing LPG within 3 months...
i have heard about 3 ikons 2-1.6 and 1-1.3...

both 1.6 had to shell out 60-70K for repairing the car and not sure about 1.3ikon

Overall ford is heavy on maintenance. doing any mod will cost you big time.

I am from Hyd and I got LPG installed in my Siena 1.2 (now sold) for Rs. 21000. I got this fixxed in Begumpet, in the lane next to Hockey stadium (opp. to minister road). Was referred by tbhp member Hariyan. The installation was good and there was no loss in power though the engine was smoother when run in petrol.

It was very unfortunate the person who did my installation expired few months ago. I am not sure if his brother is still running the business. Once you go in to the lane i mentioned earlier and travel a few meters, you would see a garage written Lovato all over. Ask for Deepak.

I had BRC kit installed in my car.
