Re: Want a New 4x4

Depends why you want a 4x4. If you want to go off road, go for a Range Rover. The L322 has more than it's fair share of electronic problems but up until 2005 has the same 4.4 litre engine as the X5 while the earlier P38 can also suffer electrical problems but at least they can be fixed. The X5 isn't...

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

Assuming you have a manual valve, turn that off before unscrewing the post or you'll be venting the entire contents of the tank.....

Re: system throws low gas pressure fault and wont manually switch untill high reducer temp

It's still looking like it could be a gummed up valve, sometimes it opens and you get full pressure, other times it either doesn't open at all or only opens very slightly so you get low pressure. That would be worse in cold temperatures than when it is warm.

Re: lpg for taxi?

If you are contemplating a standard port injection engine rather than a direct injection, you'll only use petrol on a cold start. It'll run on petrol until it reaches change over temperature (usually within a mile) and then run on gas after that. Some systems will restart on gas on a hot start, othe...

Re: EML light on motorway

Although the light will be off, the codes will still be stored so can be seen. I would suspect it is going to be a fuel trim problem, mixture either too lean or too rich when cruising so the fuel trims will be maxing out one way or another. The cure is almost certainly to get the LPG system calibrat...

Re: EML light on motorway

Your best bet is going to be to plug an OBD code reader in and read the fault codes. That will tell you why it is bringing the EML on.

Re: L322 range rover 4.4v8 lpg range

Just looked at filllpg and you'd need to go to Nottingham or Doncaster to get a decent price. Amazes me the variations, I'm in Peterborough and the cheapest I've got is 57p at Flogas going up to 69.9 but in St Ives it's only 55.9 at Morrisons.

Re: L322 range rover 4.4v8 lpg range

It's going to depend a lot on how your drive it and where. In town you'll use a lot more as you will be constantly accelerating and hauling over 2 tonnes away from a standstill, on a longer run at constant speed you'll use a lot less. I've got the older P38 with a 4.0 litre engine and I can get anyt...

Re: Excessive Exhaust Steam?

It's normal at this time of year, especially if the air is a bit damp too. As LPG is a much simpler hydrocarbon than petrol the bulk of the exhaust gases are water vapour, so it does look like there's a lot of steam there. Nothing to worry about if it isn't using any coolant.

Or Shell put pressure on them to reduce the competition? Calor supply Shell anyway so they will still sell the same amount with less hassle.

Re: Newbie with a question!

Then again, worst case it needs the reducer replacing as it isn't man enough for the job, just over £100, and a set of injectors. Personally I'd go for V34's at £200 for two 4 way rails but V30s should be man enough and under £100 for a full set. Still far cheaper than a new install.

Re: Calor Depots removing Autogas

My local Calor depot stopped doing Autogas months, if not years, ago. They hardly sold any but they were the most expensive place for miles so not surprising.

Re: Newbie with a question!

2002 could be a very late P38 or a very early L322, which is it as neither are particularly complex.

Re: Newbie with a question!

It may be that the car has a system fitted by one of the done in a day outfits, or by a DIYer, and has either not been fitted correctly or simply not set up correctly. Worst case, even if it needs major work, it still wouldn't cost as much as doing an install from scratch. Every car I've bought in t...

Re: Twin tank

Oops, mistake. You need the non-return Tee in the outlet but a plain one in the inlet. Give Tinley Tech a call, tell them what you are doing and they'll tell you what you need. The only thing you might find is that when filling you get what is known as machine gunning where one tank fills before the...

Re: Twin tank

Almost but not quite. The Tees need to incorporate one way valves so you'd need a pair of these (one on the fill line and one on the outlet) https://tinleytech.co.uk/shop/lpg-parts ... rn-t-8-mm/ assuming 8mm pipe. Other than that, just fit the second tank making sure it's bolted down properly.

Re: Motorhome LPG installation

Tank pressure is relative to temperature rather than volume so the pressure will be the same whether it is full or has only a dribble in it.

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

Once running on gas you should see 12V from the ECU to the solenoids but, if you have a high resistance somewhere then a meter will show 12V when open circuit with nothing drawing any current but will plummet if you try to draw current. If you do have it running on gas with the solenoids hotwired tr...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

The wires to the solenoid will only be live when it is trying to run on gas. You may find that the ECU isn't supplying enough current to pull them in but if you hotwire them there may be enough to hold them in. Plug in spade terminal type fuses often oxidise so you'll get a connection and it will sh...
