You have to hook it up to a laptop and have a look. It could be low LPG pressure, temp related or an actual logged fault. Without looking its hard to say. Have you checked your coolant level ?

Pressure loss.

You just need to work out why you are loosing pressure. Under what conditions does it switch back?

You need an interface lead and the software. If you get in touch with mint lpg they will have the software. The lead is a standard aeb. But you need the number off the back of the romano ecu for the sofware. Prefix b,c,d etc.
ebay autogas interface lead aeb...

Nothing that complex. Just load it up, plug the lead in and then take some screen shots. Post up the screen shots and we should be able to confirm if things look right.

You need to see what the gas pressure is when running under different conditions. Ideally at the time it switches back. Get someone to watch the display while you drive, it might be pressure, it might be temperature, it might be something else, just look for something that changes.

ok chaps iv sorted it :D

it got to the point where it was constantly switching back to petrol so I plug the lap top in and it was not seeing any pressure at all so I felt around the pressure sensor and as soon as I touched it I got pressure back so I started the car got it going on gas and the poke the sensor again and again it went back to petrol so iv found that by cable tieing the wires forward and that seems to have fixed it,,,

the sensor is a aeb013 does anyone no where I can get one from???

regards matt

The AEB013 was notoriously unreliable and has been superseded by the AEB025. You'll need an adapter cable to fit the 025 to your existing loom. You'll find both the sensor and adapter cable about 2/3rds the way down this page http://www.tinleytech.co.uk/acatalog/AEB.html
