I am not familiar with this system, so I wont be much help.

However to help the next person along can you answer these points:
Was the car previously running well and it just happened?
Is this a new conversion that has never worked properly?
Can you confirm that the tank/fuel line solenoids are working and opening when the system come on?

Here is a list of things from another thread i've just replied to:

You may get some help in some of that.

I'm sorry I cant do better for you.

Thanks...
Car had been running fine, however I had been on a long run so LPG did run out and had to use fuel, so the problem has started since I last filled it up... could it be a air lock?
Tried all usual thinks like switchin LPG off until temp etc but as soon as the system trys to switch over it just dies.... I have managed once to get it to run on gas while stood still but as soon as I need to accelerate it cuts out.
Surly most LPG systems have the same funtionality so is this a common symptom of a faulty part...
Car still rns fine on petrol !!! but at only 18MPG its not cheap.... Help needed soon.

Still need to find a LPG garage near Sheffield.... HELP !!!!
