Re: Service or replace

Thanks again Brian. Confused - the KME site talks about a KME Gold with 6mm pipe but looking on the sales sites, I'm only finding 8mm ones. This makes me want to swap out the current KME 'gold' for an 8mm kme 'gold'. I don't understand why my current KME reducer has an anodised gold core but has "KM...

Re: Nevo not swapping back to petrol

Many thanks Brian. Gas leaking into manifold seems likley, I had an old necam that did this from the vacuum hose to the manifold after 120K. As the current car its 'konking out' on all 8, I'd favour the vacuum hose but the injectors sound unhealthy (abnormally loud clacking). Docs suggest the LPG sy...

Nevo not swapping back to petrol

Hi Nevo on P38 rr. When driving normally, when lpg runs out, car switches back to petrol with minor fuss. When idling or driving slowly - and lpg runs out - car stutters and stslls rather than changing to petrol. Petrol system pressure problem or nevo config issue? If I rev a little when lpg is stut...

Re: Service or replace

Embarrassing..... It appears that when the guage indicates empty, that is because the tank is...... You guessed it..... Empty! I didn't think the tank was empty because I had just topped it off and the car was cutting out rather than switching back to petrol. A problem with the float is shutting off...

Re: Service or replace

Thanks guys, that's great to know. I will keep the nevo. I will replace the injectors just because they ~sound wrong~. I want a new ecu, keeping the old one as a spare. The reducer has a gold colour core but is stamped with the word ~red ~ Is this a ~gold~? kme say 6mm supply is OK, does the forum a...

Re: Service or replace

Hi brian The injectors are just nasty generic types. The name on the ecu suggests this is a nevo kme system. Before I spend any money or time on it, I wanted to check if this cheap kit is worth the effort. I suspect our site installers may suggest it is better to bin it and start from scratch. It ac...

Direct line problem

Whist looking for a car I got a quote from direct line. It was gbp60 more than the quote websites but I wanted to use a big name. When I got the quote, I asked for it to start when my current policy ended. After viewing the car, I decided to buy and phoned direct line. I now needed the policy to sta...

Service or replace

Hi all. I was a regular visitor back in 2015 with a necam vaux. Recently bought a P38 4.6 bosch. It has a poorly lpg. I am wondering if I should replace the front end (and tank sllenoid) or rebuild the current system. Mot records and installation receipt suggest it has done 10k and is five years old...
