Bottles

I sold my propane bottles with my last caravan and the new van has clip on type bottles, does anybody know if those gaslow adaptors that take them to a POL fitting so you can use a normal regulator are suitable for a reversed flow, so i can pay autogas price not about £3 a kg, in theory obviously?

Re: What pressure should a Single point vapouriser/reducer be set to?

Following your tip here I added a power valve before my BLOS, it running a lot closer to stochiometric when reving now without needing the main mixture adjustment on the BLOS to be virtually closed off, I just need to sort out my A/F ratio meter as its had a hissy fit - i think due to the lambda get...

Re: Flo gas woes again

Thanks all, fourseasons are in range to fill but last time I checked I think their autogas was about 80ppl and its in the opposite direction to where I normally head, I spoke to them previously when I was trying to buy a house a few miles away from them re supplying me with a bulk tank for home fill...

Flo gas woes again

Getting shafted with a lack of gas deliveries to forecourts again, nothing locally for 3 weeks now :( local stations say the supplier doesn't even bother answering the phone but i've emailed and they say its deliveries as normal. If I purely theoretically wanted to run an upside down bottle or could...

Re: What pressure should a Single point vapouriser/reducer be set to?

why if stoich is perfect combustion, will racers run 'rich'. It gives more power, but why? I had it we want air and as much as the fuel will burn, not less? From a motorcycle racing point of view is is better (especially with 2 strokes) to run slightly rich than a fraction lean as rich engines don'...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

I can ask in the local breakers (in Surrey) what happened to the CNG tanks from the council ivecos they broke up if anybody is seriously interested? I'm assuming they will be long out of test now even if they are still say with other pressure vessels.

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

@CNG Do you have a thread somewhere on what set up you have? I'm getting confused here between LNG and CNG I think, I was looking at what was described as factory CNG Crown Victorias in the States but they were talking 1000s of PSI in the tank and that along with the expiry date made me wonder. The ...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

I have a feeling there are a couple of public CNG fueling points but the lorries use private fueling points. There was a CNG fueling poing from waste methane in Wales I think but it closed some years ago. CNG tanks are mega heavy, you wouldn't want to be dragging one around if you weren't using it. ...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

I think CNG has taken a bit of a backseat in the US now as users are finding that it is uneconomic to get a new tank fitted once the use by date has expired

Re: LPG injection on a 2l pinto?

I remembered that and the massive improvement he got in MPG going injection - Was there ever a standalone system that came with its own ECU rather than having to go Megasquirt or one of the other diy efi type projects?

LPG injection on a 2l pinto?

Hi, i'm playing with my pinto powered transit again. Its a mk2 so factory electronic ignition and a carb. I'm currently running open loop with a BLOS carb but would it be possible to fit a modern gas injection system to it? I have a lambda fitted already with a air/fuel ratio gauge to keep an eye on...

Re: Bedford cf 2.3

How about a BLOS carb instead of a plate mixer? - Its going to need flashlube as well if it hasn't already had hardened valve seats fitted for unleaded.

Re: Time for a new tank?

I was going to fit a replacement 100l tank but i've found amongst my stash of bits a 70l undermount twin tank that came from between the chassis rails of a modern transit, it looks like it should fit under my mk2 ok. Its a 4 hole tank, the one remaining in the back of the van is a single hole - is t...

Re: Newbie alert!! 2002 vauxhall combo question

Hi, I had a factory fit 55 plate Combo that was serviced by Arun Autogas, I think they are still going under a slightly different name. It might be worth giving them a call and seeing if they are familiar with the system still

Re: Time for a new tank?

Always had a cap on the filler point while I've had it, the tanks aren't that far out of test either.
It sounded more like something rolling in the tank rather than liquid gas swishing about.

Re: How to disconnect LPG

I can't remember which ones are pass and advise if they fail to illuminate, I know either EML or ABS is a pass and advise if its not illuminating - ie you take the bulb out or stick tape over it. This does sound more like a fault on the system somewhere rather than anything to do with the LPG though...
