Costs & Options

Conversion Costs

With the LPG conversion being based on the existing Nissan black cab engine the conversion can be tailored to the condition of the engine.

At present the complete engine is stripped inspected and rebuilt with: the Jaymic modified cylinder head, new pistons, new cylinder liners, bearings, oil pump, water pump, gaskets, core plugs, etc. etc.


It is possible with a low mileage, unworn engine, that the engine could be converted with just the Jaymic modified cylinder head, thus reducing conversion costs. With this option no guarantee could be given for the bottom half of the engine.

Fairway - LPG Fairway conversion with complete engine rebuild £5,875 including VAT.

TXI – LPG TXI conversion with complete rebuilt engine is to be announced for various engine numbers. Due to slightly different pistons and con-rods in some of the TXI engines the price may be slightly more expensive (maximum £500 including VAT).

Booking a Conversion

You can pre-book your conversion, without paying a deposit, 2-months to 2 plus years in advance. See our booking form.

Deposit

A 10% deposit is required one month before your conversion date.

Conversion time

Conversion time is 5 working days. This may be reduced to 3 days with large-scale production facilities coming on stream towards the end of 2005.

Proposed Conversion Programme

Until the proposed new conversion unit is up and running we are limited to the number of cabs we can convert per week. To make it fair to the cab drivers and operators most affected by the Mayor of London’s emissions strategy we would prefer to book your conversion in a month before your annual PCO licensing inspection is due.

Finance

This should be available soon for both converted cabs and for the Jaymic LPG conversion. Please contact us for the latest information.

Are there any hidden extras?

Collection and delivery

The price for conversion is ex-works. You can either arrange collection and delivery yourself or leave your cab at one of our London service agents and pay approximately £100 delivery and collection charge. Some of our agents may be able to rent you a cab whilst yours is being converted.

Tank of LPG

When your cab is converted, the fuel tank needs to be filled, to check the operation of the 80% shut-off valve. The fuel cost to fill the tank is approximately £32. This is not really an extra as you will be able to use this LPG.

Surcharges on engine rebuild

With the conversions we have carried out to date; most of the cabs have been high mileage examples with worn engines that have had parts that could not be reconditioned. The surcharges are as follows if parts of the engine are not re-usable (surcharge prices do not include VAT):

Cylinder head cracked or badly distorted - £300
Engine block cracked or has excessive corrosion - £300
Crankshaft not suitable for regrinding - £100
Camshaft not suitable for regrinding - £100
Oil cooler assembly is not suitable to be reused - £100

Don’t let this surcharge list frighten you, as to date, we have not found a problem engine block, crankshaft or camshaft.
