Re: New member with a question...

This is my opinion, I have no experience with this set up: It looks like and adjuster, as it is knurled. 1st I would turn it all the way off, make a small pen mark at a point on the casing next to it and a corresponding mark on the knob itself. 2nd Then turn it all the way open, counting the number ...

Re: Flashlube

Prologue: The flashlube kit (that i'm familiar with) is a bottle of a chemical that replaces the additives in modern petrol that themselves replaced the tetra-ethyl lead that used to be in petrol. This lead compound was used to prevent the valve seat wearing and primarily as an anti-knock solution ...

Re: Flashlube

I drip every 6 seconds in the sight glass with the engine running at idle.

The manifold vacuum is highest at idle so the drip will slow down as you run the car, and deliver the right amount for the air/fuel passing into the engine.

Re: worrying bad MPG

I'm pleased to say it means your car is running very well. I'm not so pleased to say that I have no idea why it's guzzling lpg. My only idea is the original one;, it's purely down to driving style and the normal loss in MPG is being amplified. Did you do the 'big run' test? If it fails that then the...

I'm afraid I can't help you, but if you do find such info online you could maybe add it to this section of the forum:

Re: BMW X5 4.4i Sport

I can confirm I set to 40 degrees and at this time of year (12-16 ambient) it takes about 1/4 miles to switch. Check to see where they installed the lines for the vapouriser; if it is on a line that who's flow can be closed off by you having the heater control valve shut/set to cold then you my only...

Re: Which Vaporizer to use?? Need Help

Twin vapourisers and two injectors per cylinder perhaps?
If it's lambda controlled then they will simply run at very short pulses at low power/revs.
Although they may not support short enough openings!

I'd definitely use flashlube.

Re: worrying bad MPG

If you look through the figures for mpg that are quoted about this forum you can see a big variation between cars. My own car does 25mpg on LPG an about 29 on petrol which I and others think is exceptional, and if they were not my own figures I may even be sceptical. Others see a huge change. The on...

Re: Jaguar S-Type R E-GAS conversion from hell!

I have nothing constructive to add that was not already above in mak-uk's post, but merely wanted to say 'Good grief!'

Given the number of these reports that are surfacing it seems that every cowboy and their granny is sensing an lpg boom and trying to cash in.

I'd be cracking skulls.

Re: Jaguar 4.0l conversion

Apologies, after I though about it I meant to say 'if the Jaguar has a high to medium value'

Low value buyers will probably bite your arm off and take their chances.
