Re: Bedford cf 2.3

Personally I think the Blos carbs are over-rated, they work but not as well as claimed, no better than a mixer and just add complication.

Re: LPG injection on a 2l pinto?

Have a read of Robert's thread when he did something similar with an Astra, started off with a single point then went to injection, viewtopic.php?f=32&t=8781&p=58376#p58376

Re: lpg tank won't fill up

Sounds like a filler problem to me. Poke a long, thing screwdriver down the nozzle so it is to one side of the brass piece that runs across the diameter and give it a whack with a mallet. That will one the one way valve in the filler so you should get a blast of gas out (Oh yes, wear a glove on the ...

Re: Shell removing lpg

I notice that Calor have changed their logo to that of Primagaz, maybe they are pulling out even though a lot of Shell filling stations still have banners encouraging conversions and giving double points on Autogas?

Re: Import LPG Car

It's simple. I import cars from the US, Russia and EU regularly and register them in the UK. If the car is already here, it needs to be registered within 6 months of arrival or never stays in the UK for more than 6 months. So if you travel out of the country regularly, it is a temporary import while...

Re: 1998 Toyota Previa Misfire

Ahh, that isn't JOBD. JOBD uses the same connector as a standard OBD connector, just a different protocol. Never seen one like that I must admit but I doubt it will store any misfire codes so wouldn't help you anyway.

Re: 1998 Toyota Previa Misfire

At that age it will be, as Simon suggested, JOBD. My daughter had a Jap import Toytoa MR2 of similar vintage and I bought a Creader Vi+ which can do JOBD as well as standard OBD2 and EOBD. Unfortunately the only sellers I can find aren't in the UK (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Diagnosis-Launch-Creader...

Re: Bedford cf 2.3

A Bedford CF, blimey, there's a blast from the past. You'll need a single point kit that can work with a carb (assuming you can still get a mixer that will fit on your carb) so will have a 3 position switch, petrol, petrol but pump off to drain the carb float chamber and gas. A mechanical pump will ...

Re: Problems with Bigas system on Audi S6 V8

Connecting the lambda sensors is a convenience, it just means you can see what they are reading from the LPG software screen rather than having to monitor them on a separate OBD reader. So they won't make any difference. My experience with multipoint systems is limited but the one thing I notice is ...

Re: How do I identify Volvo V70 factory fit system?

Looking closer it appears that as long as I find one that has the Bi-Fuel badge on the back then it will have been a factory fit system so will have the correct type approval number. I would suspect that if the system has been changed/updated it shouldn't matter as they will be expecting it to have ...

Re: How do I identify Volvo V70 factory fit system?

This https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo_V70#Second_generation_models is where I got the info about the tanks, they did a CNG version of the Gen 1 with the tank in the wheel well, but the Gen 2 was LPG. DVLA won't help as I'll be buying it in Holland and there are quite a lot running LPG available (...

Re: How do I identify Volvo V70 factory fit system?

Looking at 2000-2007 Gen 2 V70. The important bit is the type approval number on the registration document, it will be different on a factory fitted car than on a standard car that has had a conversion done on it. To satisfy the French authorities it needs to have the correct type approval number or...

How do I identify Volvo V70 factory fit system?

Been tasked with buying a Volvo V70 from Holland to go to France. There's plenty about with LPG and some are likely to be the 'factory fit' ones while others will be conversions. How do I tell which is which as a factory fit will be no problem to register in France but a conversion will only be acce...

Re: Hidden fillpoint ball stuck

Standard filler is just the same but if you get any crud in there it can cause the valve to stick. One of my cars had been run for years with no cap on it when I first got it and that would stick 2 out of 3 times I tried to fill it. A blast of brake cleaner while holding the valve open with a screwd...

Re: Audi S4B7 4.2L, V8

Which system is far less important that how it is installed and calibrated. What engine and how old? I think most of the later Audi engines are direct injection which limits your choices considerably.

If it's misfiring on petrol, it will misfire on gas. Sort out the petrol running first.

Re: L320 4.2sc issue

Last question first, yes, the Ford/Jaguar engine in the L320 SC does have soft valves seats so does need to have a valve lube system fitted, worn valves shouldn't give a lean mixture error though. You're in the right area though, Tinley Tech aren't far from you and they are BRC importers these days ...

Re: Getting P0172 only on LPG

Try disconnecting the petrol injector on number 1 cylinder. If that cures the problem it might not be shutting off the petrol to that cylinder and dual fuelling.
