Subaru Legacy 3.0R Type B H6 240bhp 2006

#1 Post by LPGC » Tue May 24, 2016 6:37 pm

2006 Subaru Legacy 3.0R type B H6 240bhp 24valve - This is a rare and sought after model.

I've owned this car since December 2015 and now I'm selling it.

Great spec with the H6 engine, 5 speed automatic/tiptronic gearbox, climate control, aircon, touch screen fuel computer / satnav, glass sunroof (that's double usual sunroof size, electric tilt & slide, with sliding sun screen), 18" alloys with good tyres, those alloys cover the bigger 'spec B' brakes and Bilstein suspension, full black leather, removable towbar, brand new LPG conversion (fitted by myself LPGC to similar spec as Rich-R's Subaru that I also converted which is also on this forum), good condition, will be sold with full 12 months MOT. No issues. 9 Service stamps in the book covering from new in 2006 to 2015, it's again just had an oil and filter change (by myself) so I suppose I can put another stamp in the book for a total of 10. The car has covered 111400 miles.

This isn't a trade sale, I'm not in the business of buying and selling cars - I am in the business of converting vehicles to LPG and vehicle LPG system repairs, the car is registered to me.

It originally came to me for LPG conversion in December 2015 but things didn't quite go to plan and I ended up buying it.

Here is a link to a full album of pics of the car on photo-bucket: http://s1365.photobucket.com/user/Simon ... 6%20240bhp

And a pic of the car that will appear in this post:

I've been reliably informed this spec Subaru is pretty rare and sought after, and with the new LPG installation (warranted by myself for 2 years) that I should ask £6k for it...

As the engine and transmission are identical to my Outback 3.0Rn I can add to Simon's advert by saying that it should average around 27mpg on A-roads, over 30mpg when cruising on the motorway at a constant rpm. Town driving it drops to about 20-22mpg. Those figures on LPG obviously - petrol is maybe 10-15% better as you'd expect.

Thanks for that, Rich!
Just for other's benefit, Rich is the Rich-R I mentioned above, owner of the Outback with same engine I converted to LPG.
Yes it will do the same mpg, Rich. And 27mpg on LPG is about the same economy as 54mpg running on petrol... Better than diesel economy but with the ultra smooth, quiet and clean 3litre 24 valve 240bhp engine! But I'll be preaching to the (er) converted on this forum :lol:

Quote from the Subaru Legacy forum...
Redefined wrote:Just seen this ad. I can confirm myself as the previous owner. I can also really vouch for Simon and when/if I decide to get my new Subaru lpg'd he is the only person I will be entrusting my car with...

Currently the only thing holding me back from the lpg aside from the cost is my engine management light problem. Even that after discussing with Simon very briefly and just giving him the code, he did come back within a split second with something similar to what I had taken months in diagnosing myself (after a starter motor had alreayd been changed!)
As you'll have gathered, the quote is from the ex owner of the Subaru.
