In every major city you will find companies which deal with this business.
What to say - driving is a bit less expensive, but the car becomes less dynamic. Furthermore the cost of technical inspection is slightly bigger, it's also an additional element which may fail in your car.

In conclusion I'm not sure if converting a small car with the engine less than 1.8-1.9 is worth it.

Converting your car to LPG doesn't have any impact on engine or driving performance by condition you pay attention to select proper car and equipment. You have to select sequence injection LPG equipment like STAG, but about cars you shoud make some reaserch. My BMW 520i was still fine after 140 000 km on LPG. Keep in mind you have to keep a level of "benzyn" high, otherwise you kill a fuel pump - it means no any savings.

If you drive even the average, it is worth it. If installed and maintained properly, there should be no or very little drawback. I am on my 3rd car with LPG - so far no problems. The key is to find a place with the best recommendations in your area (it should cost around 2,000-2,500PLN) both for installation and servicing.

I ran a VW Passat Combi on LPG for a few years. The car was a lardass anyway, so I don't think the LPG made much difference. Filling up half price was great, though.

2,000-2,500PLN

You can pay more or less than that. A friend of mine paid 6000, and I've heard of places that go as low as 1500.

find a place with the best recommendations

Exactly.

I'm not sure if converting a small car with the engine less than 1.8-1.9 is worth it.

Depends on how young the car is and how long you plan to keep it. You can, of course, buy one with LPG conversion already done.

technical inspection is slightly bigger

Quite a bit bigger as I remember.

this will depends on the type of engine of your car - best thing is to google and read more about.

where have u change it to LPG?

again, google is your friend - you will no doubt find a reliable installer in your area.

A friend of mine paid 6000, and I've heard of places that go as low as 1500.

Correct - the 6000pln would be for the direct injected engines.

The key is good maintenance - especially as the quality of LPG is unreliable in PL due to lax standards at filling stations, so the filters need to be changed more often than the recommended interval, plus have the system hooked to the computer regularly if you drive a lot.
