Removing lpg tank

Hi, Anybody removed an lpg tank themselves? My X5 battery is playing up and of course it's underneath the lpg tank!. Have been quoted £280 to remove it which seems excessive to me given it is only a half hour job - noted they are qualified to do this sort of thing but if the tank just needs to be se...

Re: Prins VSI filter kit

Looks a little harder than changing the filter that's for sure! Hopefully don't need to find out.

Re: Prins VSI filter kit

Hi Mak, Fitting filter was a breeze. On a scale of 1 to 10 it was a 1 in terms of difficulty. Can't see why they charge so much to change the filter - I know they are supposed to check all the settings and that the system is running correctly but I wonder how much time goes into this. I can highly r...

Re: Prins VSI filter kit

Just an update: I have the purchased the filter insert for my Prins system. £9 +vat each - decided to buy three to see me though the next years or so. Haven't fitted it yet but will do so over the weekend.

Got them from 4tech. (link earlier in thread) Very helpful.

Cheers
Jabba.

Re: Prins VSI filter kit

Didn't find out exactly when the new one was fitted from. The supplier said that the new one would fit my system only I have to buy the complete unit rather than just the internal filter section therefore costing more to purchase. He said Prins are continually changing parts and wansn't that complim...

Re: Prins VSI filter kit

With my filter, apparently I can take it apart and simply insert a new filter into the housing. You can't do this with the new filter and therefore they are much more expensive because you are buying the whole unit. I am waiting on the supplier to get back to me when they have some of the filter ins...

Prins VSI filter kit

I have found a supplier in the UK who can supplier filter kits for the prins vsi system. Has anyone used 4tech.co.uk? I have checked the part numbers on the two filters i.e. one already installed and the one being sold and they are different - anyone know whether they have been upgraded and hence th...

Re: BMW X5 3.0 - Advice Greatfully Accepted!

I had my X5 3.0i converted in July 2005 with a prins vsi system. You may have read the experience I have had in previous posts so I won't repeat them again. I had a 77litre tank fitted and I get around 60 litres into it. Depending on driving style I get on average about 200miles out of this tank. On...

Re: 'Dirty' gas strikes!

Sorry to hear about your problem Mak. Not sure if I've suffered from dirty gas but I do suffer from stalling but I can assume that since Alternatech have not been able to identify my stalling problem then it can't be the reducer in my case. Hopefully your problem will be rectified but I guess we are...
