Re: Advice please!

PM me your address and I'll bung the 36mm one I have here in the post. There's no bypass holes like there is on that one and may require a bit of bodgery to fit it, but I reckon it will work a lot better as all the airflow goes through the venturi and the hole in the centre is a lot larger.

Re: Brim to brim...

Probably, if you bought a USB cable. Some come as two parts, a serial cable and a serial to USB adapter but if you've got a cable with the AEB diagnostic plug on one end and USB on the other, the adapter is part of it. Nokia phone running W8 is Windows Mobile 8, not Windows 8, different animal entir...

Re: Advice please!

I found that if I set the revs too low, the engine would stall or almost stall, if I blipped the throttle and let the revs drop, hence setting it at 1,700 rpm which means it comes back in nicely without stumbling. Yours probably idles a bit lower than mine so you can get away with the fuel coming ba...

Re: Brim to brim...

It isn't the software that is unstable, 9 times out of 10 it's the USB to serial adapter. Ones using the FTDI chipset work better, but still not perfectly and I've got a PCMCIA card serial adapter and that works perfectly. However, you can't beat a proper old school serial port and Windows 2000 (or ...

Re: Car jerks on LPG only. Advice please.

As Brian says, the CReader will do everything, including JOBD, the proprietary standard used on Japanese imports (which is what made me buy it in the first place). As well as reading and clearing fault codes, it can display live data, can show up to 4 parameters as a graph and can save them so you c...

Re: Advice please!

ORFCO is detected by the TPS reading. It sees the TPS showing what it has detected as the lowest voltage it has ever seen and when it drops to that it enables the over-run cut off. It obviously learns the lowest TPs voltage over a period as I've found with mine that if I drive at a constant speed (7...

Re: Advice please!

Brilliant news and about bloody time! I was getting bored reading about the finer points of different fittings and I must admit, you've gone to town on those fittings. What's wrong with self tappers and tie wraps like us mere mortals would have used? You've even neatly ground down the edges of the p...

Re: Filler through body removal

Yes that's right. Assuming a multivalve and not a 4 hole tank, there's a non-return valve at the inlet to the tank and another at the back of the filler. So you are only looking at the pipe contents and not the whole tank full. As said, just slacken off at one end and allow the pipeful to escape.

Re: The lovely people at Shell, not.

Pathetic really when you consider Volvo are now doing LPG versions of their trucks. I drove past Ashford Truckstop a couple of weeks ago. Big sign outside saying Trucks Only, LPG Available.

I think we all need to boycott Shell for everything, domestic electricity and gas, internet, etc.

Re: Condensation in car possibly from LPG tank?

Good point, the AC on my Range Rover chucks so much condensation out of the drain, I've had people tell me I've got a leak when I've stopped for fuel.

Re: Hydrogen for LPG fantasy?

Just for the hell of it I've just looked it up. Stoichiometric ratio is 34:1 by weight and, as Hydrogen is pretty light, that's an awful lot in terms of volume. However, it has an Octane rating in excess of 130 RON, so while you'd need a pretty big tank to carry sufficient for a decent range but you...

Re: Hydrogen for LPG fantasy?

So if I can find a suitable vaporiser, I could convert my singlepoint? It runs very nicely on the 50/50 Propane/Butane mix sold in some European countries, in fact, it's more economical on it.

Re: Condensation in car possibly from LPG tank?

A propane bottle temperature will only drop significantly if you are drawing a lot of vapour from it as it is evaporating in the tank. An LPG system in a car draws liquid from the tank so the same shouldn't happen. Have you actually seen condensation on the tank or are you just assuming that is wher...

Re: Interfacing AEB Type LPG resistive or voltage senders/ sensors to your fuel gauge.

It isn't rocket science, you've got a varying resistance from the sender and you need a varying voltage. Simple op-amp and you can convert the resistance to whatever voltage your gauge needs.
