This is actually becoming a huge pain i...

Re: LPG Spark Plugs - Fact or Fiction?

My Golf Hated the NGK LPG plugs, Standard ones are perfect. I would make the step up to Iridiums but the standard ones can had so cheep I don't mind swapping them out at a 9000-10000mile service, plug you have the added bonus of wanting to quickly check up on the HT leads and ignition coils or packs...

Re: Prins VSI reducer rebuild question

Just thought i'd update.

Everything is reinstalled and seemingly working really well bar one slight water leak on one of the T-junctions I installed. Just waiting for the diagnostic cable to help me fine tune everything. Really tired now though

Re: Misfire after a service

It's a shame you continually hear about Garages that pull fast ones these days. If i'm getting work done because i cannot be bothered to do it myself, I stick a mark on the part I want replacing. if it's still there when it's done. I got the knack of doing my own spark plugs and the right tools to d...

Re: Sorry it's not on the lpg register!

I got them to clarify it only needs to be on the register. However found out I'm overpaying for insurance anyway.

Re: Sorry it's not on the lpg register!

Yea I understand that Brian, Hence my frustration. Fact is ether I transplant the LPG conversion arguably to the better car or I could stick the engine on my old car ( and a few days of the road to strip out the seats and dash to fix the air conditioning ) . Ether way I'll be tinkering with the LPG ...

Re: Sorry it's not on the lpg register!

If i get it fitted and submit it for inpection the the listing on the lpg register will look like this. Please note that the registration is a result of the vehicle being inspected for basic safety and emission requirements as at the day of inspection and not as a conversion by a UKLPG Approved Auto...

Re: Sorry it's not on the lpg register!

Yep. Its a pain. I want to transfer my lpg kit from my old mk4 golf to my new one. Easy right! Nope and the register won't say it was fitted by an approved installer which might actually invalidate the insurance.

I dont think my old car kit came with the propper certificate of installation ether.

Re: My MK4 golf 1.6 is in for conversion

Well finally had some time to go check out my nearest drive lpg compliant garage. The guy seemed quite reasonable and he thinks s that it will pass just transferring everything as is to the new car. The filler is fine aparently due to the plastic pipework too it. If it was copper piping he would hav...

Re: My MK4 golf 1.6 is in for conversion

Finally not busy and have some time to really look at this properly,, and it's becoming quite expensive running on petrol. Checked with the insurance and they ( Tesco Bank ) require the car to be on the drive LPG register or they will decline the insurance. Which leaves me with 2 issues, I Think the...

Re: My MK4 golf 1.6 is in for conversion

I had planned on keeping the pre-drilled section of the manifold, it makes sense. My tank sit's in the spare wheel bay of the boot and it should be in date but i haven't checked that yet. I hadn't given much thought to rebuilding the vaporizer, never going to have a better opportunity. new Filters t...

Re: My MK4 golf 1.6 update

Last week I killed the engine, a cylinder that had been misfiring for quite a while for maybe as much as 50,000 miles then lost compression :( . It's not completely broken down yet, but It needed a fair bit of TLC and new spark plugs to keep it going as long as i did. got about 115000 miles out of t...

Re: LPG myths, miss-information and downright bull

"LPG is dangerous and if I had my way, it wouldn't be allowed on the forecourt" - from the cashier at my local Morrison's petrol station. :roll: I could understand that as my local co-op forecourt, but then again any station that has leaky pipes under ground from the tanks is going to have problems...
