Re: lpg toroidal tank

thanks Simon I understand so should I buy a 52mm carb mixer rather than a air intake one? Simon did suggest speaking to https://tinleytech.co.uk/ as he couldn't remember what they usually recommened, but would know what gives the best results. They are worth contacting for advice/supply of the corr...

Re: Shell removing lpg

2 of the 5 I've had have had the fuel type correct on the logbook, One I've managed to change, the other came like it (but was on a 1997 R plate so should have been the same as your situation). I'd suspect the view of Autogas is that the sales are too low for them. Of course it doesn't help when the...

Re: Time to do some tuning

Given the amount of crud in the injectors, have you checked the filter in the solenoid housing to the reducer? If thats blocked up in a similar fashion that will cause problems with getting enough gas through.

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

Possibly engine damage if its an injector, as it will screw up fuelling. If its the vapouriser less so, as your likely to get the right mixture at least (though still fix it obviously and it may cause issues all the same). Theres a limited amount that can leak once the engine is shut off (its only w...

Re: lpg toroidal tank

If I remember right, doesn't the Talbot van your camper is based on have the spare under the bonnet, above and to one side of the engine? Are you intending putting the tank under the bonnet? I did wonder if thats what was meant with the bonnet closing bit mentioned above actually. I'm going to move...

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

The usual reason for struggling to start on petrol is a leaky vapouriser, specifically it either leaking it up the vacuum connection, or leaking it through a gas injector (stuck, dirty, faulty etc). Best way to prove if that looks to be the cause is to revert to petrol operation and see if the probl...

Re: Landi Renzo gas system

Those injectors are noisy as they get old - mine were very noisy. They aren't known for being particually good either. Not sure if a better option is available thats compatible with your ECU, though do you have the pressure sensor mounted in the end of the injector rail on your setup?

Re: lpg toroidal tank

That would cause you to cut off filling far earlier than you'd want, the float is designed to cut off around 80% filling capacity (your 25 litres above). The valve has to end up at the lowest point (due to wanting liquid not vapour take off - which would be even more important on a single point setu...

Where you say its pointing down do you mean the tank is not sat on a flat surface/is sloped as its installed?

Re: lpg toroidal tank

The valve needs to be in the right orientation to work. The pickup tube needs to be at the lowest point to pickup liquid rather than vapour. Correct location will depend on the type of tank, you can use a 0 degree external type with the valve at the bottom edge. May need a hole in wheel well to achi...

Re: Time to do some tuning

It looks to me like your hitting the limits of your reducer - Simon did say it was marginal in terms of flow for your setup in the other post (impossible to connect) assuming this to be the same car? It does look like the pressure is a bit low, but it also looks like it just isn't very stable at its...

Re: Time to do some tuning

Don't know your specific ECU, some have better capture features than others. But screenshots of the settings are an easy point to start from if you don't have a second person to assist at this point.

Re: Time to do some tuning

If its switching back due to either low pressure or injector times too long, then changing settings isn't going to fix it, first thing you need to see is what's happening when it switches back, gas times and petrol times, see also what trims are showing if you have access on both fuels under same co...

Re: Shell removing lpg

All you can do is ask either Shell or flogas if they plan to keep the pump. The email I had from autogas suggested Shell were going to remove all of them as they were over 20 years old. Which isn't even true in a lot of cases as a few stations of theirs haven't even been built that long. That statio...

Re: Diy fitting?

You should be fine to use the camshaft sensor wire, I wouldn't use the crank one as that wire is typically more difficult to get connected to, and is usually in an area of the engine more exposed to the elements than the camshaft one so may cause problems if you don't have a watertight connection.
