Re: a way of raising the height of the access lid by around 12 – 18 inches from ground level

A bit of a specialist question that. I would suggest your best bet will be to ask whoever supplies your gas.

Re: turbo astra new problem oi vey ..

power steering fluid do ? Dunno, but it isn't going to do any harm. ATF seems particularly good at alloy to steel corrosion and mixing it 50/50 with Acetone lets it penetrate more before the Acetone evaporates and leaves the ATF to do it's stuff. A mate had an engine that had been standing for 6 ye...

Re: Converting a Ford Triton 6.8 litre 362HP V10 to run on LPG.

A lot of people that import them fiddle the weight figure to below 6 tonnes so it can be driven on a car license.. Why? As long as the driver passed his driving test pre-97, then he can drive up to 7.5 tonnes Gross Vehicle Weight (or MAM as they now refer to it) along with a trailer of up to 750 kg...

Re: turbo astra new problem oi vey ..

Soak it in ATF, that seems to free of most things that are stuck. Works better than Plus Gas a lot of the time.

Re: Converting a Ford Triton 6.8 litre 362HP V10 to run on LPG.

All depends on whether the gaskets come off in one piece or not. I've reused gaskets that had been installed dry with a smear of Hylomar but if anyone has been in there before and done that then chances are they will come off in bits and you will need a new one. What motor are we taking about? I rec...

That will go through gas at an alarming rate, easily enough to frost the pipes.

Re: How do you keep your fuel pump alive?

I've not had a problem with petrol that's been in the tank for the best part of a year, exhaust smells a bit rank but that is only of concern to anyone following me.

Re: Advice on tuning & remapping LPG'd direct injection engines

No idea about a DI system but if, and I assume it does, it gets it's information from the petrol ECU then it will follow what the petrol system is doing so the tuning shouldn't affect it. However, the caveat here is that a DI system may work differently (as you need to get a kit designed for a speci...

Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

Best bet is a very old laptop with serial (RS232) port running Windows 98SE or even earlier. Modern stuff just isn't suitable for serial communications which is why I keep a geriatric Panasonic Toughbook in the car. It has a blindingly fast 600 MHz Celeron processor, a whole 512k of RAM and a 30 Mb ...

Re: Old Zavoli System, Need a little help please

The injectors you have are nigh on bulletproof so a leaking injector is pretty unlikely unless they've done 250,000 miles or so. A slight leak from the reducer so gas is coming out of it into the inlet manifold via the vacuum connection is a distinct possibility though.

Re: BMW 520i 2004 landi

In the software you will have a setting for ignition type or coil type or similar. You will have options such as single coil, dual coil, etc. Try changing these settings and see if you can get the revs to read correctly.

Re: Can I decant from Safefill refillable container to my vehicle

600 quid! He's having a laugh. Just over 200 for a decent sized tank and multivalve and very little work to swap. If you fit a taller toroidal in the spare wheel well, you can put 4 lengths of timber around it and raise the boot floor if you need to. Losing a couple of inches of boot height will all...

Re: Can I decant from Safefill refillable container to my vehicle

30 litre? I didn't realise you could get them that small! That is a complete waste, you'll be lucky to get 100 miles range out of that. Did the car originally have a tiny space saver spare so the well is small? Your options would be either a larger spare wheel well tank and raise the boot floor or j...

Re: Can I decant from Safefill refillable container to my vehicle

Only if you have a pump or want to risk heating the refillable container. If the vehicle tank is completely empty there will be no pressure in it but as soon as any vapour gets in there the pressures in the two tanks will equalise so there will be nothing to cause the liquid to flow from one to the ...
