LPG diesel conversion (STAG)

Has anyone experience of STAG's diesel system (or any other manufacturer)? It appears to be a hybrid system rather than a a switchable dual system as with petrol. I'm looking for economy rather than power boost. Living in west Cornwall where our LPG station network is shrinking, fewer fills ups is a...

Re: Help with forming a Cornwall lpg user group

Hi Simon - I feel your pain, being based on Penryn the Calor outlet was convenient and cheap. I joined the forum recently so have only just picked this up. Did you get anywhere with group buying? Certainly small housing estates negotiate group deals, but I guess they do have a tank to start with! I'...

Re: Electrical gremlins (fuel gauge going haywire)

So, new gauge arrived, and the led display is stuck on 'full' rather than 1/4 it says on the mechanical display! Running through the options on the software, I have concluded the AC proprietary gauge is based on volts and the replacement one is a generic resistance type. Seems to all work stably whe...

Re: Electrical gremlins (fuel gauge going haywire)

Hi - yep, software now working! No errors, but when I ran the autocalibration it read 'Nozzles too large' and go for a run. The manual describes running on petrol and gas through a range of conditions then mapping one onto the other. I can't see how the nozzles can actually be too large unless they ...

Re: Electrical gremlins (fuel gauge going haywire)

Thanks again for your advice. I'm in Cornwall with a Screwfix round the corner so I will go and get one. The 'no controller' connection problem is all the time. I have used the cable in this laptop once before (to turn the service audio alarm off), but I have a feeling that may have been before I up...

Re: Electrical gremlins (fuel gauge going haywire)

The only connection which had some corrosion was on the fuse, so good call there. I had a good look along the cable to the sender and I could not see any obvious damage. It was a bit tight around the lip of the hole into the spare wheel well (tank is in that), but no obvious chaffing. I took the gau...

Electrical gremlins (fuel gauge going haywire)

Hello - I am a relatively recent convert to lpg and I am hooked. I am quite handy with cars, but feel a bit out of my depth on the lpg side. I run a Nissan Tino with a Stag 300 system (fitted 2012). It ran perfectly for the 3 years I have had it until recently. It started with an annoying continuous...
