Re: Misfire after a service

They were brought from a shop so I'm guessing they are genuine .
I will take them out and gap them down to .7 mm or even .6 , and see what that does .
Will also look around to make sure all hoses and leads are connected ok .

Re: How far do you get with LPG? eg. How many miles for £10

Lexus sc430 V8 , i did 220 miles on £26 of gas at 54 litre .

This was mainly motorway and i was being a bit naughty :lol: with the speeds , so would expect to get even more if i was sticking to the speed limits.

Re: Is this a direct injection engine

Thanks for the info Brian .
I think you've put me off buying it now , :lol:
I suppose it's a bit worrying that it's not on the register , and then with the hassle of renewing the tank and valve , I might give it a miss .

I have spoken with the seller and he said it was converted to LPG about 9 years ago , so that's more or less from new , sho...
