Re: Gas Certificate..

Simon (LPGC) on here should be able to assist you, hes near Doncaster if you get that way? Bit of a trek from Glasgow, but if you go all over the place not impossible at least. His contact info is on his signature on any of his posts (you might not be able to see that if your using a mobile browser)...

Re: info for alternative connection with dual tank.

You might get away with daisy chaining two level sensors together, depending what readings your getting on the existing sensor. Technically they should have a level gauge on each tank anyway even if it isn't connected to the dash readout. That said, I doubt its worth the bother as the gauges vary qu...

Re: Lpg switch positive connection

Do you know the name and model of the ecu or system you have fitted? AC Stag Qbox Plus Probably should also have asked what car its fitted to? Wiring diagram is here just in case you don't have it (goto the second page of the pdf if you want the English version) https://www.ac.com.pl/download-cente...

Re: Tartrini LPG pressure switch switching over to petrol

You'd probably be best to get hold of a lead rather than spending money on parts without being sure they are the cause of the problem. It may be as simple as the outlet valve on the tank getting stuck partly closed at full, if so your test above may prove that to be the case. (There is a one way val...

Re: Tartrini LPG pressure switch switching over to petrol

How much is full, and how big is the tank (there should be a water capacity marked on it, your lpg capacity would be 80% of that if the valve works properly it should cut off at that - is the 60 litres you mention what you can get into the tank, what it should take, or what the water capacity shows,...

Re: Prins VSI reducer rebuild question

There are a fair few thin walled sockets listed on Amazon, but I'd suspect the 19mm box spanner would be a better bet to fit the limited space available as its probabbly a bit thinner than the sockets would be.

Re: Random Misfire Cyl4

Compression test would suggest theres nothing wrong with the valves? What sort of mileage has it done now, and when was it converted?

Also does it have any sort of valve saver (Flashlube/v-lube/JLM) fitted?

Re: Prins VSI reducer rebuild question

The thinnest walled sockets I've got are in a set of spark plug sockets - Offhand not sure what the hex size on the end of them is though, or if they would be thin enough. I will have a look when i get chance if thats any help/

Re: Stuttering on LPG, fine on petrol Volvo 960 95

The going dead when you connected the interface would suggest to me you want to start looking at the +12v supply - bad contact on the battery pickup or the fuse holder itself can cause supruous errors and problems with no real theme to it. Has that diagnostic lead worked ok on that ecu before?

Re: Which flashlube?

Not sure if two stroke oil would be thin enough to work in a flashlube system - the pipework tends to be very small bore so might be difficult to get it to dose accurately (if it could even pick it up in the first place). Theres either a pumped electonic type, or a vacuum operated type, either might...

Re: Toroidal tank installation

Its generally recommended to avoid the smallest type of covert filler, as they are quite thin and can snap off. Your right they are not uklpg approved, but that only matters if your insurance company requires it or if certification of the install is needed, in which case speaking to an installer wou...

Re: Toroidal tank installation

You want to seal the pipework from the interior of the car, there is a pressure release valve on the muitivalve, what your looking for is to keep anything that comes from that, or any leaking pipework, from getting inside the car. The tank will be fine exposed to the weather as they can be under slu...

Re: Random Misfire Cyl4

Given you say its just at the transition - do you mean as its about to switch to gas? I'd wonder if you actually have a leaking gas injector on cyl 4, and thats flooding that cylinder with gas at the same time its running on petrol (which wouldn't be for long as it would only do it once the system h...

Do you have any diagnostics for the car?

Re: VW 2004 beetle lpg problem

You say you've checked the fuses - are they in an inline holder? As well as corroding, they sometimes don't grab particularly well (particularly with some of the cheap fuses out of the multi box type you get online as the contacts aren't quite as thick as they should be). if its the rubber lump type...

Re: Anywhere in Surrey, Sussex or NW Kent to service my LPG system?

Also - if its been untouched for a long time, its worth going round the jubilee clips on the hoses if thats what has been used, and making sure they are actually tight, as they can and do work their way loose over time
