Re: KME Nevo intermittent errors

I only discovered it by accident, after trying to track down what was going on with mine (think mine might have been generating other spurious errors as well all around the same time, though seeing what the voltage coming through was at the time I'm not surprised that was the case anyway). Assuming ...

Re: KME Nevo intermittent errors

I had both of those errors intermittently, and found that the snapshot data saved when the errors occurred showed a low voltage around 9v. It would typically do it after driving for a short time. Cleaning battery terminals helped in my case, though I later discovered an alternator issue which certai...

Re: Miles pg/tank successes!!

Maybe I was just lucky then! That was what was noticed on the Disco 2 when I drove it upto Liverpool, though it probabbly helped more that the traffic was fairly light. MPG figure in that case was calculated by filling on departure and resetting trip, then refilling and using the fill figure and mil...

Re: Help required for wiring a system

If its an older ecu, it might be wise to do the relay anyway as it should cut down the heat generated in the ecu anyway. Possibly even worthwhile in a newer ecu with multiple tanks as well.

Re: Another wiring issue different vehicle

The switch itself will be the more useful bit to identify. Photos of it might be enough for Simon to tell you what it is? You can upload them here, I think you managed to do that on the other posts?

Re: Help required for wiring a system

Taking a typical coil value (16w) and 12v dc that would be 1.2amps. https://www.thecalculatorsite.com/conversions/common/watts-amps.php will allow you to calculate that yourself if yours differs. You've potentially got maybe 4 amps on that switch/wire all the time the engine is running. Given you ha...

Re: Miles pg/tank successes!!

You're more likely to use more fuel doing pulse and glide and probably more chance of you or someone else having an accident. I've found the best economy can be got if your able to use cruise control, which sort of makes sense when you think about it. Definitely agree with the the above, and as Ric...

Re: Another wiring issue different vehicle

Yes, first thing to check is disconnect the level sensor, remove it from the valve, and check resistance of it. You can move the pointer with a screwdriver touched to the rear. Whilst you have it out, see if you can identify the type of sensor by a model number, if not, then make a note of the value...

Re: I can't get the van to run smoothly on petrol when the mixer ring is fitted.

I'd read the reasoning above to suggest your filtering it to stop stuff getting back down into the crankcase via that route rather than to stop anything coming up from the crankcase. A lot of older Ford's I've had have had the breather before the air filter, those typically use a sponge block in the...

Re: Pipe sizes.

The MAX232 converts the signal - TIA/EIA-232-F inputs to 5-V TTL/CMOS levels specifically. Its not just a case of converting the voltages.

Lots of info on the chip here https://www.ti.com/lit/ds/symlink/max232.pdf

Re: Pipe sizes.

It might be worth asking Landi what software would work with it. Nothing to lose by asking. That said, not sure they will be particually helpful but you'd be no worse off for asking them. First thing I did. They said "Talk to our UK agent." Their UK agent said they don't do lambda systems and never...

Re: Miles pg/tank successes!!

On the mixing front, your target usage is 1ml per litre of fuel. Can't see that working for a cooling effect, nor would you know if you'd be getting enough valve protection. Worst case is you have valves recess enough that they don't close fully, they then burn on the seat and needs seat recutting. ...

Re: E10 fuel

The official line is premium or super grade petrol will be E5 for the forseeable future. Thats referenced on the page linked to earlier as the workaround if you can't use E10. So yes you could use that. Though really, doubtful it would be much of a problem if you use it up in a reasonable time anywa...

Re: I can't get the van to run smoothly on petrol when the mixer ring is fitted.

I think it really was something as simple as the mixer being too close to the carb. With the LPG system being "professionally" fitted, it was the last thing I wanted to tamper with in my quest to get the van running better. I have added a picture showing how i have it set up now. It's running much ...

If the petrol injectors are at 0, then the lpg ones will be also at 0. You can monitor that sort of stuff with the laptop, though difficult to do if your driving. Don't run round for extended periods with very little petrol in tank while your on lpg, you risk cooking the pump if it runs dry. Thats a...
