Re: VW Golf R32 converted by LPGC

It might depend on your browser, but firefox mobile has a request desktop site option, which does make the forum change appearance. Though this would really be photobucket in this case anyway, I'd guess/expect thats different on a mobile. Most forum software does display differently on a mobile thou...

Re: What pressure should a Single point vapouriser/reducer be set to?

CNG - I notice you seem to crop up in the logs a lot getting posts blocked, if it happens again can you drop me a pm with what it is saying the problem is with the post?

Cheers

Re: VW Golf R32 converted by LPGC

Interestingly, if you look on a mobile browser the pics are just fine, at least they are in firefox though are blurry on a desktop pc with the same browser.

Re: L320 4.2sc issue

There should be a temp sensor there somewhere, so sounds like you've found that. But is that on petrol or gas? If its on petrol, is it any different after trying to run on gas or does it stay warm?

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

Much of a similar issue for me in a different way, this week for example I've been away from home from Sunday evening, and won't return till Thursday evening. Every station I've gone past with the exception of Chievely services and the Esso at Ringwood, is a Shell one. And Ringwood is currently brok...

Re: L320 4.2sc issue

Start with the simple things first - does the reducer get hot once the engine is running and upto temperature. It should be hot enough that you don't want to hold your hand on it if the flow through it is good. If not it may be airlocked. Oily marks on the outside could be an indication the reducer ...

Re: Setting up a Stag L Plus

Well you've got it now, so might as well try to use it, but there is a couple of them on here along with the Stag you already have (ecu and loom, but at twice the price of the Stag one listed plus the VAT) https://tinleytech.co.uk/product-category/lpg-parts/electrical/lambda-control-systems/ The Leo...

Re: Getting P0172 only on LPG

Good news there, where is/was it connected to? Bear in mind that heavy ends (the gloopy bits in lpg) can gather in the reducer where the pressure drops down and they will look similar to valve saver fluid (usually a bit darker if anything, but I don't know what extended heating would do to valve sav...

Re: Service or replace

It would, your right, but its unlikely that both are shorted together unless it was deliberate. I'm not sure if it could have been worked around in the software, maybe (Simon would know better on that front). Its possible to configure one cylinder to run on petrol and the rest gas though. Either way...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

The last paragraph in the post above, is particularly worth being aware of, its effectively the same thing in the eyes of HMRC as running a vehicle on the road on Red Diesel if you don't somehow pay the duty on it. Probably also worth trying any smaller suppliers if you can find any local enough to ...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

Have a watch of the video they link to. You won't get the whole contents of the cylinder (I'd guess around 1/2 of the lpg in the cylinder went to the truck shown) and you need a liquid offtake ideally (else you have to turn the cylinder upside down to get liquid out of it rather than vapour). And th...

Re: Service or replace

There is only 2 ways it can be doing what your seeing. Either its reversed, or not connected at all to the negative side. Shorted connections would result in it not working on petrol. Unless the ECU is at fault, but at this point I'd think that was doubtful. Not sure what youd see on the positive si...

Re: Setting up a Stag L Plus

The problem with the installation on the vehicle is that the wiring loom is crumbling, and it's damaged the ECU. I can't find anyone that's actually got the kit in stock right now. I'd give Tinleytech a try if you haven't already - might be better to either ring or email them to ask as it may be th...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

The email received today, suggests its going from all the Shell branded forecourts supplied by Calor/Autogas over the next 12 months. But it also states they only supply Shell forecourts, which is at odds with the first bit (theres an Esso near me thats one of theirs, and I know its not the only one...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

That would be the more sensible option, But I've never known of anyone posting on here having managed to sort that out. I would expect if it was a home tank with a liquid offtake, that the gas would be supplied with the road duty taken care of (which wouldn't be the case with using cylinders obvious...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

How much can you purchase a 47kg for though? https://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/15898519/15898519 £108.57 works out to £1.15 a litre (as its around 2 litres to a kilo) , which would probabbly work out around equal to running on petrol costs (might even actually be more expensive). If you can find somewher...

Not really much you can do if its going, the only installer I know of down that way is Ozon in Plymouth - https://www.ozonlpg.com/ (my second LPG vehicle was originally converted by them, before I owned it). At one point they did have a tank, it may be worth getting in touch with them to see if they...

Re: Disappearing LPG pumps...

Make it quite clear to them you won't be buying any fuel from them in future once the pump goes. If there is enough demand you might get some alternative option, but in more remote places you could well be out of luck. Scotland has lost almost every one of their pumps from autogas, although in the b...
