Re: Jaguar 4.0l conversion

I'm tempted to write 'If no-one can help then why not just get your hands dirty and do it yourself?' but that probably won't help you much. At £4800 it's quite an investment. Have you done your sums as towards running, servicing and potential re-sale, as that amount of money is potentially 1 year's ...

Re: tank fills

I cannot imagine why it would be a valve, ans what valve it would be. My understanding of my own tank, and the filling mechanism, is that when I connect it to the lpg pump and 'brim' it up there is an overpressure switch in the pump itself which cuts it out and makes a thrumming sound. At that point...

Re: Aldesa RSI+ kit on a Hond Accord Coupe

Sorry to flog a dead thread, but I thought someone may be interested: 1. I have had a lot of in injector problems with my new style (rounded) Aldesa injectors. The gave up almost sequentially. I got each one that went replaced very quickly though, so was only on petrol for a day or two. Eventually t...

Re: Introduction and of course problem..

If the tank's own gauge says 0% then i'd say you have no gas! If you are positive that it had some then it may point to a leakage in the system, or a stuck open solenoid, or a very badly degraded mixer unit. Once it Is happy on gasoline i'd make sure that warm coolant can get to the vapouriser, make...

Re: USA Harley Davidson--Autogas Help Needed

I'm not sure what you mean by vapour outlet tank because you mention that you have 'tank, regulator and carb'. It looks like your set up is: LPG(fuel) tank then regulator (heat exchanger liquid to gas unit ??) then carb. And the vapour outlet tank comes between the regulator and the carb? Or have I ...

Re: Introduction and of course problem..

If there is no heat then the lpg may be freezing over the mixer and carb surface rather than vapourising normally, which would make it very difficult to start. If the ignition system is old it may not have a good enough spark to ignite the heat-sucking vapour entering the cylinders. You may get joy ...

Re: 2004 Vectra with Tartarini System

You may be able to get the tuning software somewhere on the 'net and examine the settings yourself if you have a cable. It may be either a mis-set temperature sensor cut-in. It may also be a faulty temperature sensor that is not feeding a correct signal to the ECU. I don't know this for fact, but it...

Re: 1997 Cherokee Jeep & LPG

The species of exhaust gas components with LPG are different from those in petrol, due to the different chemical structure, so perhaps the profile of the gasses don't agree with the tester's equipment. If it has a narrow calibration range it may not be adaptable. Thats said, hydrocarbons are hydroca...
