Re: EV conversions

How many type 1 or type 2 DI conversions have you done?

Cheers.

Re: EV conversions

My V8 isn't allowed (already checked on that website).

Looking at the lists of DI vehicles that have been converted on the TT website, max displacement is circa 2.8L. No V8s or high power motors that I can see.

So has any installer on here converted any DI cars?

Cheers.

Re: EV conversions

I've still got my 2002 reg old German because I want to stay on LPG as long as possible but the ULEZ coming to London and Birmingham (Leeds and Manc to follow suit) from the start of 2020 means that cars like mine will no longer be allowed in the zone unless you pay circa £10.00 per day. I posted on...

Re: EV conversions

How long can LPG conversions last though?

With many cars from 2006 being DI and Ultra Low Emission Zones coming to a city near you (affecting quite a few petrol cars pre-2006), it seems LPG conversion will be becoming even more niche?!

Cheers.

Re: Injector hose size in mm?

Gents,

It appears I have air leak from the lpg injector spuds in the inlet manifold. What's the best thing to seal this with? What sort of glue is normally used?

Cheers.

Re: Injector hose size in mm?

Well I've changed all the hoses and clips but FYI the original was 5mm not 6mm (but I just used the 6 since I had already bought it).

Cheers.

Re: Injector hose size in mm?

Gents,

Does anyone know what size spring clips I need for this type of injector hose? I need to order them so don't want to order the the wrong type?

Cheers.

Re: Injector hose size in mm?

Thanks Brian.

I ordered the 'regular' black LPG hose anyway but just thought if there is something 'better', I'd use it. Now to sort out being sent only 2.8m instead of the 3m I ordered! :evil:

Cheers.

Re: Injector hose size in mm?

Thanks Brian.

I've no issues with paying extra for a better product and hence my query wondering whether silicone can be used as I'd rather not do the job ever again!

Cheers.

Re: Rebuilding Prins reducer

By way of update, I replaced the Keihin injector I thought was faulty and everything has been running great. Some time has passed and I am getting differing LTFT on Bank 1 (-3.9) and Bank 2 (-10.9) but on petrol the banks are similar and both around -2.9. Does anyone have an idea why the 2 banks wou...

Re: Rebuilding Prins reducer

Plugged in a code reader and lifted the bonnet. The gas injectors seem to be ticking a lot more than normal and fuel trims are all over the place when on gas (but perfect on petrol), so I am assuming the gas injectors on the cylinders with errors are at fault??

Cheers.

Re: Rebuilding Prins reducer

It's an old 5 series V8. Just driven 150 miles on petrol and everything is dandy - no errors code and fuel trims spot on. The moment I switch to gas it runs lumpy and the EML starts flashing - even when the car has been running for an hour and the coolant would be plenty hot.

Cheers.

Re: Rebuilding Prins reducer

In the end I just replaced the o-rings that were leaking at the coolant inlet and outlet points on the reducer and have been running fine for some time but now (and only on gas) I keep getting really rough running. I've checked the error codes and get: multiple cylinder misfire with fuel cut off mis...

Re: Rebuilding Prins reducer

Well I managed to open one side of the reducer but the other side (with the torx bolt in the centre) would not come off at all. The torx bolt turns all the way in both directions but the cover does not budge. How does this side come off?

No issues with regards to software. I just wondered if you could perhaps give a brief step-by-step?

Re: Rebuilding Prins reducer

I have a later version which is leaking from the coolant elbows but checking in the shed, I previously replaced an older version (D) and bought a repair kit consisting of o-rings, diaphragms etc. I figured I'd refurbish the old one and put it back on. I used to have a PDF guide but cannot find it :(...
