For Sale - BRC V8 Sequential LPG Kit

As part of the ongoing restoration of my 2007 Range Rover Supercharged I’ve removed the LPG kit from the car. I’ve got a 94 litre 4 hole doughnut type tank that fits in the spare wheel well. I don’t have any pictures of this but it’s 100% rust free due to living in the spare wheel well of the car. h...

Re: Engineering company suggestions for hard valves/seats

Sorry to revive an old thread here… I took my cam covers off on Friday night to sort an oil leak on mine and whilst it was off I started to check the valve clearances. They should be between 0.018 and 0.022mm. I couldn’t even get a 0.009mm feeler gauge in on cylinders 1 and 5. 😩 I then noticed whils...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Sorry Simon, I didn’t get a notification email that anybody had responded to my post and I forgot to check back. The reducers on my car are 2 x BRC Genius MB1500s. These were new replacements I fitted at the end of March this year. Since fixing the petrol return solenoid the car has been running per...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

A very late update but I wanted to just to put this to bed :) For the last 4 months I’ve not done many miles and due to the engine management light coming on I’ve been running the car on petrol as I didn’t like seeing the orange glow of the management light. Last week I had a problem with the headli...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

I had another look at the fuel pressure with the diagnostics today. I noticed the below... When the car changes to petrol the fuel pressure behaves in 2 different ways. Sometimes the pressure slowly trails off and works its way down to a constant 300kpa, other times, it climbs and then just drops of...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

I had a good rummage earlier this evening. I tried Plug n Drive 2.06 and it would read the information from the ECU but nothing else. https://i.imgur.com/NiUQAeu.jpg I took the ECU out too and got some more photographs of that. https://i.imgur.com/BwJBsJc.jpg https://i.imgur.com/3y18kHO.jpg https://...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

The only changes I've knowingly made to mine was reconnecting a few vacuum pipes that I found were perished when I did some work on the car. Nothing for the LPG has been unplugged or disturbed. I'm hoping to have a look shortly to see if I can find anything obvious that jumps out. I've been looking ...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Thanks for such a detailed answer, Simon. Good point about it not having done it before. I’ve just checked back at the codes I read off it when I first got the car and there were no stored codes for high fuel pressure so it must be a new thing. I’ll have a proper rummage in the ECU box when it dries...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

I think I’m going to order something like this: https://tinleytech.co.uk/shop/lpg-parts/system-upgrades/petrol-return-kit/ Hopefully that should cure the fault with the EML. Any recommendations where I should pick up a 12v feed for it? Does it connect easily to the fuel rail on the car? Thanks, David.

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

I’ve done a few more miles in the RR today. I cleared the EML and then took it for a run, as soon as it switched to LPG the EML came back on with the exact same high fuel pressure fault. I’m going to have a look at it and see if I can find a fuel pressure emulator or similar as I didn’t see any fuel...

The only label on the ECU says Fly SF on it.

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

I had another look at the RR again this afternoon. I tried one of the BRC LPG software variants and it told me my ECU had been programmed with Sequent 56 so I downloaded Sequent 56 version 1.15 and got an error saying the ECU had been coded with an earlier version. I then downloaded 1.14 and got the...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Thanks Simon,

I'll have a rummage for the software and will check them pressures before doing anything then :)

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Thanks Simon, if it’s running as well as it is, I’m hopeful that the bits fitted are a half decent quality. Having it as good as can be will be better then it running like @!## so that’ll do me as long as it’s not a million miles out when you see it :) I’ve been looking through the booklet for the L...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Hi Simon,

You are indeed correct :)

At peak boost I’m getting fuel pressure of around 467kPa.

Image

When running on LPG the fuel pressure seems to just sit at a constant 310kPa and once switched back to petrol is sticks at 310kPa and doesn’t move.

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Thanks for responding, Simon. :) Well, I had a quick look at it today. Brian was indeed correct. The reducer is leaking LPG into the vacuum pipes. As soon as I switched the car off I pulled one of the vacuum pipes from the reducer and stuck it in a cup of water and it was bubbling like mad. I put my...

Re: 2007 Range Rover Supercharged

Just been out and had a quick look under the bonnet and it looks like you might be onto something, Brian. I pulled one of the vacuum lines off the reducer and there’s a distinct smell of gas in the rubber pipe. I’ll stick the end into a bottle of water tomorrow and see if I can spot any bubbles to b...
