Re: flash lube bottle leaking

Other than inspecting the cap and bottle for any sort of damage, nothing much i can suggest. I've always found the flashlube bottle on mine to have a layer of muck on the outside, suggesting it allows some to leak out.

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

What does the errors in the diagnostics say once its switched back to petrol? It should log a fault of some type. If it doesn't, what does it show in terms of readings for pressure/temp etc? I would also consider Simon's earlier comment regarding the relay to protect the ecu in future so you don't g...

This morning our board of directors have given the go ahead for the business to begin the long list of repairs to all keysites that require them. We are now drawing up a schedule of ...

The other strange thing there was they had no way to see what you had actually dispensed and relied on customers telling the amount.

Re: injector fails

Ah, I thought you meant switching it off, not giving it a whack!. That sounds like its sticking I'd think it was worth a try with some injector cleaner first (at least good enough chance I'd give it a try first). Rebuilding it probably better, but if you can't get the bits may not be an option. This...

Re: injector fails

What I'd suggest you do first, is to swap the electrical connection and gas pipe from your dodgy one to one that works currently, and make sure the fault follows the injector just to rule out a problem that swapping injectors won't fix. Just in case its something else causing the problem (kinked hos...

Re: Calor Depots removing Autogas

Certainly possible as they supply most of them as you say, usually at a higher price than Calor. Suppose at least Shell have opened a couple of new stations recently, which no other chain has done.

Re: Calor Depots removing Autogas

Oxford was like that as well - theres went a couple of years ago and they seemed glad to see the back of it. Though if they had approached it differently and had made the pump more accessible (card operated and available 24/7 is possible, other places were doing so, or the countrywide model but with...

3500 litres a week from what Swindon said, sounds like a fair bit of easy money to me?

Re: Newbie with a question!

Might be worth finding out what vapouriser/regulator is fitted just to check its actually capable of supplying enough gas (as if its under specced you may need to replace some bits to get acceptable performance out of it). Would also suggest you try and find out if the certificate for the tank is av...

Calor Depots removing Autogas

Have just been to try and fill up at their Swindon depot today, pump has been taken out and not being put back, on orders from head office (depot can't really understand why as they were selling quite a lot of autogas upto the day of removal). It appears that Calor have decided this for all except 2...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

It happens, at least you've sorted the cable out now. Any idea on the exact wording of the message? Bear in mind a poor system connection to the car either at the battery, switched live or ground might cause a lack of power. Usual place that happens is in the fuse holder from the battery leaf.

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

Re: lpg feed pipe size on 500 bhp engine.

When I've had the tank totally empty, I usually couple the hose up and let it stop making noise before trying to fill. Partly because when i tried without waiting it tended to upset the pump. I think Dai said typically you'd get a couple of litres of gas from the pressure in the hose equalising like...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

That does sound to me like something is wrong with either the cable or the drivers. Mine isn't the exact same cable, but should behave in the same way as far as i know (the one i tested with is an ftdi chipset one for KME, FTDI make most of the interface chips for this sort of thing so should be the...

Re: lpg gauge bottom green light flashing and beeping

Its probabbly just down to the way windows 7 reports it, but thread exit should be down to your pressing ctrl c - do you see 0 files copied or 1 files copied? Your post above says 0, if thats the case i'd suspect something is not right with your interface (all this command is doing is sending your k...

any different if you use an administrator command prompt? (create a shortcut to cmd.exe and then right click that and choose run as administrator).

Re: lpg feed pipe size on 500 bhp engine.

Sounds about right - wouldn't worry about that as don't think you can do anything about it.
