Re: newbie second tank

It seems that whoever invents aircraft-style drop tanks for LPG cars will make a mint! I can think of a few industrial components and solenoid driven valve blocks that may do the trick, but they are expensive. Whilst I won't be held responsible for detonating your Volvo, I would suggest that you cou...

Re: Aldesa RSI+ kit on a Hond Accord Coupe

For anyone who is still reading this ambling thread I have fresh consumption figures over a 196 mile period. Averaged Petrol: 29.02mpg Averaged LPG (finally corrected to remove petrol running): 26.26mpg That is an overall efficiency of 90.5% (or a loss of 9.5%) I think that is fairly good, and far b...

Re: lpg systems

I like my Aldesa RSI+ kit.
It cost £410 + tank
While I like it, it may be at the lower end of the market.
I run it in a 4 cylinder Honda Accord and it is very smooth.

Re: Complete Newbie

I've done myself for with a £400 kit (+tank) and I am happy, but its not a job for the faint hearted. I would think that if you are wanting a warranty or any not too confident with little elements of plumbing, fabrication and wiring then an installer may be for you. If you can do it you'll save a fo...

Re: Aldesa RSI+ kit on a Hond Accord Coupe

My flashlube arrived this morning, and i'll fit it on friday. My rationale is that some Honda alloy heads are softer than others and I have no idea what the F20B5 is made from so i'm not taking any chances. Lube is cheap, heads are pricey. Injector cycling: 1. It switches to petrol after a pre-deter...

Re: Aldesa RSI+ kit on a Hond Accord Coupe

If it's working for you then i'll try a 60c switchover. I'm not too worried about replies. If one person gets any help at all from what i've written then i'm quite happy. The unhappiness with the system may be down to the instructions, which are a bit oblique. But I seem to be through them now, and ...

Re: Which system do you have installed?

Aldesa RSI+ on a 1999 2.0l 144bhp Honda Accord automatic.

Aldesa may need to be added to the list.

Re: Coverting VTec Engines? Help & Advice needed please!

Hello, I have converted my 2.0l SOHC v-tec Accord with the Aldesa RSI+ system and I am happy with it, after a few installation headaches. I imagine your ECM/ECM and systems will be fairly similar to mine, so I would say try that one. I will be fitting a flashlube kit to be on the safe side, but as i...

Re: Advice re LPG

I've driven a factory Vauxhall Vectra duelfuel and I liked it. So i'd say go for one of them. Saab probably use the same technology being part of GM , so they'd be fine too. My personal dogma though is this: You'll pay a lot of money extra to get lpg in a new factory car. How many miles will you do ...
