Re: Motorhome LPG installation

Thank you for your advice. Yes, its a JIC filler from Tinley Tech. I've made hundreds of threaded and compression joints for water and never used PTFE so I think i'll go without it initially. For the first fill and leak check, would people recommend just putting a couple of litres in or do I need to...

Motorhome LPG installation

Hi, I'm in the process of installing a domestic LPG tank on my campervan (not bottles). Can anybody tell me if PTFE tape should be used on the threads for the pipe from the external fill valve to the tank and likewise from the tank valve to the regulator? As far as I knew, its not required but i've ...

Re: Jeep Commander 5.7

Been a couple of months since my last update on this. I've been chasing an intermittent ABS/BAS/ESP fault that I finally tracked down to a simple fuse for the brake lights that had corroded. This was after changing the ABS sensors as this seemed to be the most common cause. Also had 1 rear brake cal...

Re: Jeep Commander 5.7

Right, firstly panic over..... It turns out that whilst I was servicing the Jeep, I left it in Neutral overnight with the key in the ignition. This flattened the battery and it reset the trip meter so i'd actually done more miles. Having sat down and worked out where i'd been in it, i came up with 1...

Re: Jeep Commander 5.7

So i've just filled up after 100 mixed miles.

I put 66 litres in, 14.6 gallons.

Thats 6.8mpg.

Surely something must be wrong? Time to get it on a computer?

Re: Jeep Commander 5.7 Hemi

Brief update on this: I've now completed a full fluids change, transfer box, axles, engine, autobox etc and also changed the 2 LPG filters. The 16 spark plugs are a right pain to change! Luckily they only need doing every 30k. The gearbox fluid and filters change is a pretty horrible job too without...

Re: Jeep Commander 5.7

Whilst I can't see anything wrong with the gas system, i'd like to keep it that way so I want to do some LPG servicing, i.e. change the filter/s before taking it to an LPG person with the software to check the parameters. As far as I can see, there is a Prins filter (twin outlet) mounted just above ...

Jeep Commander 5.7

Hi, I've just bought a Jeep Commander with the 5.7 Hemi engine. It has a Prins LPG conversion, completed in 2009 (50k ago) with the original certificate, paperwork and manuals etc. It seems to run perfectly, switches from petrol to gas, no warning lights, no hesitation and as far as i can tell stays...

Re: Future LPG Plan

Is anybody on this forum able to offer anything over and above the tinleytech service for similar ££££?

Whilst budget is very important I dont want to end up with a false impression of modern lpg due to rubbish kit.

Future LPG Plan

I'm in the process of finishing a house project including a decent sized garage. When this project is finally over I need another project. I ran an lpg vw camper a few years back with a basic single point kit fitted professionally. It worked but the switch to gas or pterol was always a test of brave...
