Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

It did beep back to petrol because of low gas pressure (when pressure was below p min of 0.68 bar). But that's not surprising because although the ECU's reference pressure is 1.14bar (p work) even at idle the reducer is only providing 0.88 bar. Try changing p min to 0.45 bar (in software). and incre...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

It may be switching back to petrol when you blip the throttle due to low gas pressure... But it's worth checking the errors screen as Bri said. If it's switching due to low gas pressure the potential problems are: A reducer that isn't up to the job (or gas supply to the reducer from the tank having ...

Re: Subaru Tribeca 3.0 H6

I had an enquiry about converting another Tribeca recently, was that you? Hello sir, it was not me I'm afraid - just a co-incidence. Would the £1500 mark mentioned by others be in the right ballpark? Thank you Hello... I'd charge a bit more that that for this model but not outside the ball park, se...

Re: injector fails

Do you mean tick one specific injector (switching that cylinder back to petrol) causes the fault to go away or ticking any injector causes the fault to go away? This is important because In the case of any the fault probably wouldn't be injector related at all, in which case it would more likely be ...

Re: Subaru Tribeca 3.0 H6

I've converted dozens of Subarus to LPG, all models, and fixed the LPG systems on many converted elsewhere.. often when they never ran properly on LPG since the day LPG they were converted. The H6's are OK on BRC but there are better suited systems for the H6. Some Subaru's (e.g. twinscroll turbos) ...

Re: Newbie with a question!

A wide range of injectors would work on a BMW4.4 but some I'd advise against because they're not as good as similar price similar design injectors and some because they wouldn't flow enough for the BMW engine at average pressures even if I'd advise them to an amateur to replace worn Bigas injectors ...

Re: Calor Depots removing Autogas

I haven't filled at my local Calor station for months, if I'm getting close to finishing a conversion I'll work til late (when they are closed) to get it finished, it's usually late when I go to put gas in a customer vehicle. But I get (or got) a bit of work from there... they give people with LPG p...

Re: Newbie with a question!

If it runs fine on LPG until 4k rpm it shouldn't cost a lot of money to put right.

What car is this and do you know what LPG parts are fitted?

Re: Max distance from vap to injectors

Glad you've got it sorted. BRC mapping is very simple but sometimes simplicity is because there isn't a lot of control, they can be more of a pain than other systems if you need to address aspects such as extra injection filtering etc and they can be a bit trickier to calibrate for good trims at idl...

Re: Motorhome LPG installation

If I were you I'd put just a bit i first, leak test, if OK fill up. if the tank contained only LPG it's pressure would be the same from a small amount of liquid gas to almost full... That's the usual way it's thought about but I raised the point on another thread about tanks containing air which com...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

All good advice. Also remember that you can see the voltage that the ECU sees, it's shown on screen. So, if you perform Gilbert's stop light bulb test you can compare the voltage across the stop light with the voltage shown on screen. If there's much difference in voltage readings (say ECU reads abo...

If it's a JIC filler hose the seal is made between the male cupped shape of the filler point / tank port mating surface and the female cupped shape at the ends of the JIC pipe. The threads only serve to keep those cupped shapes tightly together, even with those threads fairly tight (not tightened ri...

Re: lpg feed pipe size on 500 bhp engine.

You might get more gas in the tank on successive fills if you run the tank to completely empty. 165psi is 11bar, would expect that pressure to be able to fill the tank to around 11/12ths full (91.7%) before air pressure prevents further filling regardless of what you do with the tank valve. Perhaps ...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

The system reported voltage errors could just be due to the system seeing low voltage during engine cranking, that would be normal. Or could be that the system sees low voltage when it's driving solenoid coils and injectors because it's main power connections (positive and or negative) are not good ...

Re: lpg feed pipe size on 500 bhp engine.

From what Simon was saying above. Is it true to say that with a totally empty tank filled up , and then I used up about half the gas and filled again , that it would take more gas to fill the second time ? Not quite what I said/meant Rob.. There's obviously air in the tank on the first fill, air ab...

Re: Max distance from vap to injectors

I expect it would take only around a fifth of a second to re-pressurise a 6 foot length of 10mm ID pipe (this is what I see in the real world and fag packet maths on reducer flow versus pipe volume agree), not that gas should seep away anyway if there are no leaks.. And since there will be a delay o...
