I have no experience of LPG, can't really imagine what it could be. I've not heard of an LPG coversion on the Civic.
What Car Q&A - Can I run my Honda Civic on LPG?

12 April 2007

Q: Is it possible to convert my 53-plate Honda Civic to run on LPG?
Salim Virani


A: Your Civic is fitted with a V-TEC engine that has softer valve seats than those used in other cars. Unfortunately, this means that it is unsuitable for conversion to LPG without major mechanical modification.

The cost of modification is likely to be expensive, and would make it harder for you to save any money by converting to LPG, unless you have a very high annual mileage.

On average, a litre of LPG costs half that of diesel, and you can expect to reduce your fuel costs by roughly 40% due to the lower fuel duty paid on LPG. The Government has made a commitment to keep the tax on LPG consistently lower than the tax on petrol and diesel. Currently the fuel duty on LPG stands at 6.1p per litre compared with 48.35p per litre on petrol and diesel.

Those looking to convert their cars to run on LPG can check the list of registered installers by visiting LPG Autogas - the greener, cleaner and cheaper fuel alternative. Typically an installation can cost between £1500 and £2000, depending on car and the exact components used

Is This the reason of the smell?
But there is no "alarm" when we "sniffel" it with a LPG-alarm tester.

I have it too sometimes Basske. I have a 1.8 petrol and sometimes on a warm start up i can smell what seems like exhaust fumes but this is gone within 30 seconds. Just another of those characteristics of the car i guess :)
