If I buy a small van that runs on LPG - will I be able to drive it around Europe?

I am interested in buying a small camper (Transit size). I am concerned about new diesel regulations but I want to be able to tour Europe. What base model would you advise? Can you get small vans run on LPG?

Touring Europe in a camper van powered by LPG will be difficult given the fact that many ferry companies (and Euro Tunnel) refuse to accept them. Some tunnels in the EU also ban LPG vehicles - even if the gas tank is empty. You do not say how much you plan to spend on your next purchase, but Euro6 diesel is the best base model for a camper van, with the Ford Transit Custom and Volkswagen T6 Transporter being our recommendations.

Even more refined and car-like to drive. Most economical 102PS 2.0 TDI is also the best. Large range of body configurations. Lots of standard equipment.
