Re: lpg toroidal tank

You're welcome. Depends on how strong the floor is... If you've got a heavy cooker, fridge, etc bolted to the floor there wouldn't be much difference between one of those items and a small/medium sized LPG tank coming loose and hitting occupants in the event of a crash. If the floor seems thick and ...

Re: lpg toroidal tank

Phew, good idea not to fit the tank in the engine bay where temperatures can reach 100C causing the LPG tank to vent, etc, etc... Is this a coachbuilt chassis (Autotrail etc) or standard Talbot Express chassis van? Most coachbuilt bodies use a wooden floor which would probably need strengthening wit...

Re: Time to do some tuning

This engine has no lambda, which is an oddity of the 1998 model 105 Landcruiser Aussie variant. The model prior had it and the model that started from 2000 onwards, but not this one. Aha! In that case autocal cannot work properly and I expect your map (or at least most of it) is rich. Autocal works...

Re: Time to do some tuning

Usually if the feed to the reducer doesn't flow enough reducer pressure will fall off drastically above a certain engine load, or if the reducer itself won't flow enough pressure falls away a bit more gradually above a certain engine load... A feed issue will at some point lead to the reducer drawin...

Re: Newbie question: sudden 30% increase gas consumption Prins system

Most Prins systems don't have a vacuum connection between reducer and manifold but even if it hasn't got a vacuum connection a leaky injector could cause same symptoms. Certainly it would be worth checking the plugs. VR6's can be more difficult to start if fuel trims have been learned incorrectly an...

Re: Time to do some tuning

They look like V34's but metal bodied, they have the Emer logo on the coils but iirc unlike most 34's these have the screw thread on the side. Can you remove them from the car and unscrew just the lowest part of one of the nozzles, take more zoomed out pics from a few angles and measure the hole thr...

Re: Time to do some tuning

Morning... ;-) No, the bar reading moved further towards 'too small' because initially the pressure reading was 1.3 bar but the injectors were actually seeing 1.9 bar, now they're actually seeing 1.3 bar the injector flow rate relative to petrol injector flow rate seems even smaller. We had to conne...

Re: lpg toroidal tank

You should not even fit a tank in the engine bay, at least not unless you make a partition to separate the tank from the engine bay. No tank should be fitted on an incline either, most design tanks have to be fitted horizontally. Tanks that are mounted vertically are specially designed to be mounted...

Re: Time to do some tuning

As it stands your multiplier figures (numbers in the boxes in the map table) will be very high because with the nozzles you have fitted in the injectors and running at 1.3 bar the injectors don't flow enough gas... In your 'display' screenshot above the 'injector nozzle size' bar clearly points to i...

Re: Time to do some tuning

It is very likely you'll have to increase nozzle size though... As things stand you've got a gas pressure reading of 1.2 bar but that's 1.2 bar above atmospheric pressure not manifold pressure, we'd expect the engine to idle with around 0.3 bar of atmospheric pressure (0.7 bar below atmospheric pres...

Re: Time to do some tuning

Looks like it's connected just about directly over the axis of the throttle body shaft, probably a pipe for the evap purge or PCV system, this position probably isn't on the vacuum side of the throttle body and even if it is it will be affected by venturi type effects... No wonder you're not getting...

Re: Shell removing lpg

I filled at Shell Redbeck Wakefield yesterday.

Then went for a drive out and picnic, up the A1, across route 66 (erm A66 lol), entered the Yorkshire Dales from the North end, ate picnic near Tan Moor Inn (highest pub in England) and drove back through the Dales.. So now I need to fill again.

Re: Time to do some tuning

That's right mate. Don't forget that the reducer also needs the vacuum connection. The map sensor and reducer should pick up the vacuum signal from the same place on the plenum, so usually you'd have a vac pipe connected to the plenum with the sensor and reducer both T'd from that single vac pipe. A...

Re: Time to do some tuning

The map sensor usually picks up vacuum signal from a tap in the plenum near the throttle body (vacuum side of throttle body) but you can use an existing vac line, or if there's a mechanical petrol pressure regulator you can T into the vacuum signal for petrol pressure regulator. Different schools of...

Re: Time to do some tuning

Read this whole post before making any adjustments, I've made a summary at the bottom of the post. MAP (manifold absolute pressure) reading is showing a constant 0.98 bar even when engine load is low, meaning either you haven't connected the MAP sensor vacuum port to manifold vacuum or the MAP senso...

You're welcome.

There are still a lot of mixer systems and mixer systems are still fitted but there have never been many liquid port injection systems.

Re: Zavoli Alisei momentarily cutting out / switcing to petrol on moderate acceleraton

The amount of LPG that an injector will flow (when fully open) depends on the diameter of the jet in the 'gigler', gas (reducer) pressure and manifold pressure. Since the reducer keeps gas pressure relative to manifold pressure we don't usually need to be too concerned about gas pressure and manifol...
