A complicated procedure but in theory, yes

Sorry but I feel that what you say is too ambiguous to be of any value to me ....why is it potentially complicated? Your email to me cannot be described as an answer ..surely it is merely a response...and to me it looks like a sidestep ....some details and advice please ...then I can rate your answer. thank you ...marshall
Expert:  Andrew Smith replied 1 year ago.
Not a sidestep just I need more information.
Firstly speak to the manufacturer to see if they actually make a conversion kit for it - if they do not then it is dead in the water as you cannot make one yourself.
Then once you have a price for that (and add about £150 for fitting) you can see whether it is financially viable.
If it is then time to get the flue checked and any alterations for a gas conversion (flue liner required, etc)
And then finally you have the cost of running LPG to the appliance.I hope this gives you more of an insight into the procedure and costs.
