Re: Thanks to Simon at LPGC Yorkshire

Had a remap today on my standard ECU by Simon, many thanks to him and all the team, great service. The map is brilliant, very happy. Eh? Who are you? I didn't do any work over the weekend. 'TEAM' have you taken someone on Simon? Its a suspect spammer - Most of his posts have been deleted for being ...

Re: part throttle hesitation

Ignition problems are more noticable on LPG than petrol - Usually if your going to notice a problem on a system with a coil pack (as opposed to your seperate coil) it will be noticable at idle, and under accleration. Given yours idles ok, and appears to run ok other than the bit of the range you men...

Re: Cannot switch to LPG

It should hold it open, but if the solenoid isn't getting enough power to it, then you might find it fails to keep it open. Best bet with that is to feed 12v directly to both solenoids - if it drives as it should like that, then either you have a wiring fault, or the ecu is failing to provide enough...

Re: part throttle hesitation

Probably won't be dirt unless there isn't a filter in the line to it (should be a cartridge of some sort). More likely its heavy ends - the greasy/oily bits dissolved in the gas that separate when the gas pressure is reduced. There should also be a second filter somewhere near the entry to the vapou...

Re: Tank placement (split from LPG WONT FILL ANY MORE THAN 50% IN A 60L tank)

I've split your post from the 4 year old topic you posted it in. Can depend on the country your in obviously - here in the UK COP11 describes various aspects but none of them have any legal basis, it would only affect anything you wanted adding to the vehicle register (which might or might not matte...

Re: Tank expiry date

What he said above, note that as you have noted, the date format is backwards (year followed by month) as I did check mine today, that shows 14/06 which would be about right, as that tank was purchased sometime around early 2015 (can't find the certificate for that one, its about somewhere!).

Re: Tank expiry date

I can have a look on mine (as I have the certificate for it somewhere) as thats an Irene, but won't be able to do so before the weekend as its not where I am at the minute (and the other car with an Irene tank has the stamping on the bottom of it, which I can't see as the tank is in the wheel well).

Re: LPG Service / fix Manchester

If its really a serial cable connector (a DB9 type one) it might be part of one of these ones https://www.lpg-kits.com/Pages/interfaces.htm My guess would say its been split off from the original plug and whoever has done it has bypassed the plug, though of course as said above it may be the case th...

Re: Petrol fuel pump when on gas??

I was wondering about this too - I've got a P38 running on gas and after sorting out some dodgy underbonnet wiring I left the injector emulators out and pulled the fuel pump relay since the pump had failed. Now I've replaced it, I'm wondering about using a relay to switch the fuel pump relay feed i...

Re: LPG mileage

Suggest you check what size tank(s) is/are fitted then - failing all else post up a photo of whats there and someone should be able to take a good guess (rough measurements would help with that).

Re: LPG Service / fix Manchester

I'd suspect someone prior to yourself has altered the multivalve (badly) to try and increase filling capacity, and the float is now hitting the top of the tank before it shuts off. You might want to try and use up as much as possible before you get to Simon - Theres a filling station a couple of mil...

Re: LPG mileage

Thats a fair point, When it switches to petrol what does the switch actually do, a solid red light indicates a fault, if its switched back it should pulse between yellow and red, but solid red will indicate its detected some sort of error. I found motorway driving most likely to make it happen when ...

Re: LPG service

Look around the filler area then, equally its possible that its on your hands though and you just notice it when getting back into the van as its an enclosed space.

Re: LPG mileage

being an transit I'd wonder if its got a pair of small tanks underneath. If it has, I'd suspect one of them isn't working properly (most likely the solenoid not opening) as that sounds like a tiny amount, even the Mondeo I had took 40 litres to fill. £15 for over 100 miles in a van doesn't sound too...

Re: LPG service

No. Its from one of two places most likely. If its after filling up, then something at the back isn't right - Possible its the boot that sits on the back of the filler or the filler itself isn't quite right, the one I had just had a rubber boot fitted over a JIC hose - that was a Tickford installed ...

Its either them, or Oxford Autogas at Tiddington (near Thame on the A418) are the only two I know of, there may be others about that I don't know of.

Re: LPG mileage

When I've driven Transits, the fuel consumption is noticablely higher on a longer wheel base than a short one. Equally would depend on what you actually have in the back of the van as well. Linford Wood BP is currently the cheapest out of the 3 stations in MK (its about 2 miles from me) at 59.9 last...

Re: Cannot switch to LPG

It's possible you have either a bad connection or sticky solenoid. Keep an eye on it, if it plays up again it might be an idea to clean the solenoid posts particularly the front one, they do sometimes end up with debris stuck in there stopping it switching. Though wiring just as likely given the age...

Re: Cannot switch to LPG

Temp sensor use a multimeter set to resistance or ohms setting.

Coil yes, just make sure you leave the metal post under it on the valve else you will let the contents of the tank out
Pressure sensor not sure, suggest best bet is to see if any pressure is there, if not rule out sensor for now
