Hi,
In practice many of the customers who have gone for LPG kit have removed the same for increased frequency of troubles with usage of around 6 months.Hence eventhough the fuel economy will be good with LPG , we recommend not to go for LPG kit consiering long term manitenance costs. The santro of 2000 model if maintained properly it should give good service for another two years .Expected life is around 1 lac KM afterwhich engine needs to be overhauled and can be used for another 50k km.
