Re: Ford Transit Mk7 Landirenzo/Omegas problem

I think you have a few of your measurement units mixed up in that spec Richard - even my ancient 8086 pc I had when i was still at school had more ram than your claiming to have in the toughbook and that couldn't run windows, and even that had a 20mb hard drive on it!.

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 ...

Re: LPG Installer for Mondeo 2.5T

The only place I know in this area is CG Autogas in Peterborough, next door to Flogas (http://www.cggas.co.uk/) although he won't fit BRC or Prins, he'll fit something that suits the car. Both these systems have a reputation that is more self generated than earned and there are plenty of other syste...

Re: Mondeo st220 LPG issue

Does it have gas in the tank? I mean, have you tried putting some in and not just relying on the gauge saying it has some in? The first LPG car I bought was described as LPG converted but not working. Gauge read 3/4 full but the tank was actually empty and read 3/4 full no matter how much was in it.

Re: 2000 Merc C-class single point

I agree, the petrol in the tank performs the same function as the spare wheel, it's there in case you need it but otherwise it's unused. I reckon on £20 worth of petrol every 6 months or so.

Re: 2000 Merc C-class single point

I can't think of one unless it is a Kompressor and has a plastic inlet manifold. As long as the manifold is metal, then go for it. I'm a big fan of single point, very little to go wrong and a stand alone system rather than slaved off a petrol system.

Re: part throttle hesitation

Is it an import? My daughter had a 2000 Toyota MRS (Jap imported MR2) that used JOBD so only scanners that can read Japanese OBD would work on it. I bought a CReader but it looks like this one is the best deal at the moment https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JOBD-OBD2-Car-Engine-Fault-Code-Reader-Diagnostic...

Re: lpg shutdown

You've got two power supplies, permanent and ignition switched and it is the latter that is likely to have lost the supply. It may be picking up the supply in the fusebox or from an extra wire to one of the petrol injectors.
