No - didn't get round to it and now the evenings are getting lighter.

Have you seen some of his recent posts?
Seems to say LPG doesn't burn at a higher temperature and he is not aware of evidence for VSR.

No doubt lube systems are just a con pushed on unsuspecting motorists by unscrupulous garages - good job he is too clever to be caught out by the myth.

Quality advice - just what you'd want from a mod. If the site was worth anything, it would have removed him by now.

That's often the problem, or it is with the one I got banned from, the worst offenders, the ones that really need removing, are mods who let their power go to their heads. They peddle their own brand of BS and misinformation and then ban anyone who tries to correct them.

Agreed Gilbert and KBS.

You can tell the bloke's 'power to head' attitude by reading various threads where he's smugly censored/threatened/banned other users with little justification, usually on posts that contradict his own or being overly sensitive about advertising (even when stuff was being sold for charity). This seems to happen most often on the subject of LPG where he repeats advice from a certain firm in Wales which contradicts consensus of advice from other pros (VSR one such topic). He advises all with LPG problems to visit that firm even though they only fit Stag, and while he has mentioned the owner of that firm is in jail he has never mentioned why. I know the latter point has little to do with business but some people he advises might prefer not to use the firm if they were aware of the full story regards both jail and LPG pros consensus of opinion. A forum run like LOC is little better than a propaganda vehicle for the moderators with free speech as long as they like what's being said.

The best mods would rise above this comment but where is that ban button?

I only said about the forum I got banned from, not this one, mods on here are pretty quiet really. They can't always use quotes properly though......

Could be worse... As I write, Elgrand Owners Club forum is returning 'Bandwidth limit exceeded'. Bugger, I'll be finishing conversion of yet another Elgrand tomorrow.

What is the point of having an 'official LPG specialist' on a forum who never posts on that forum?
[http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/ ... -with-lpg/

And while we're at it, a lot of LPG advice on that forum from others is duff too - particularly advice that would have people with LPG systems other than Stag visiting the 'official' LPG installer of that forum (again because the official LPG installer of that site only fits one LPG system out of the hundreds of types that are in circulation, so will be unfamiliar with and not have parts for systems other than Stag). Just reading this could prevent someone have a wasted 300 mile round trip.

Pity I'm banned from posting on that forum by the moderator Bluesman, or I would have advised the OP in the above link correctly immediately!

Where are the replies from Bluesman's preferred installer (that firm in South Wales)? Ahh yes, the boss of the 'official' LPG firm of LexusOC is in jail for killing a cyclist while taking pictures with his mobile phone when driving a minibus (as Bluesman knows very well) - but don't they allow inmates to use computers these days?

In this thread http://www.lexusownersclub.co.uk/forum/ ... on/?page=3 Bluesman and other LexusOC forum users seem unaware that incorrect open loop fuelling while running on LPG (too rich, as opposed to the too lean which someone on that forum stated) can lead to failed catalytic converters.. And the official LPG company of LexusOC forum don't tune LPG system mixture under open loop fuelling conditions properly (in fact they don't tune LPG systems properly at all, instead leave LPG systems to 'autotune' which no LPG system can do properly, but the worst aspect of autotune is that it doesn't address open loop fuelling at all). It is likely that Bluesman's own vehicle problems, which cost him a lot of money and many weeks without having the use of his car, were caused by his LPG system which he had fitted at the firm he advises everyone to use. And then, having eventually realised that blocked cats were the immediate problem, nobody on that forum realised that the best fix would be to de-core the cats (and cheaper since no new cats would be needed). A vehicle running on LPG will pass the MOT without cats, and may achieve a bit better economy and have a bit more power to boot. Having read about the symptoms, and knowing about the LPG installers 'autocal' method of calibrating Bluesman's LPG system, I would have advised blocked cats as potential reason for the immediate (misfiring) symptoms at a very early stage in that thread so would/could have saved Bluesman a lot of wasted time (without his car) and money! Now that the cats have been replaced it is still very likely that the mixture on LPG was the cause of the problem in the first place, so Bluesman is still very likely driving around with the real cause of his recent several weeks without his vehicle and hefty repair bills still present, so driving around with a real risk of damaging his new cats or engine. If that is the case (very likely), any money Bluesman saved on having his LPG system fitted by the firm he recommends has ended up costing him a lot more money and time without his vehicle than a proper job of conversion and calibration would have cost him. A cheap LPG conversion 'done in a day' doesn't seem a great idea if it ends up working out to cost a lot more money and several weeks without the car in the long run - we'd be talking 3 days and a couple of hundred quid more for a conversion done by an installer with a good reputation who would do a great job of installation and calibration, much better than spending many weeks without the car and spending hundreds of pounds repairing issues caused by a less than ideal LPG setup. Ignorance bliss Bluesman!
