Re: I want to convert 2.5 Legacy recommend company?

My 2011 outback was converted by mint lpg Wales. This 2.5 engine is an easy conversion apparently. I can recommend them, but they are in Newport, South Wales. Simon is a lot closer, and knows what he's doing.

Re: Petrol Gauge question

My 2011 outback does the same. I think the level shown by the gauge is calculated by how much fuel the ECU thinks has been used via the petrol injectors etc, it doesn't realise it's actually using lpg instead, so shows what it would expect until the float sensor contradicts it, or its reset after sw...

Re: No gas pressure.

Hi joshnosh. I've got a Subaru outback with a romano system. A few months ago it was randomly switching back to petrol, sometimes 3 or 4 times a day, then be fine for weeks. No codes, nothing wrong, solenoids, valves etc all ok. I changed the battery about 3 months ago and I haven't had the issue si...

Mmmmm. Driving around in a supercharged range rover waiting for fuel trims to settle sounds like a real bind.....(wink). Another impressive and informative write up, cheers!

Re: Is this a direct injection engine

Wikipedia says "multi point injection". Ad says it's already converted to lpg though?

My local Morrison's (Port Talbot) had lpg today after being out since last Wednesday, so things maybe moving now.

I see there is/was a bp filling station at okehampton on the A30 that sells lpg but is showing as us on fill lpg app thingy. Anyone with local knowledge that ...

Re: High negative LTFTs on Subaru Tribeca

C0281 is to do with the electronic parking brake I think? Mine was disabled on my 2011 outback when my battery crapped itself 12 months ago. Can't find any reference to the other codes, but like others have said, a dodgy battery is known to throw random codes on Subarus.

Re: Do modern car ECUs advance timing when running on Lpg?

Air filter seems fine, but I do spend a bit of time on dusty roads. Will have to check filter and maf regularly from now on.

Re: Do modern car ECUs advance timing when running on Lpg?

I now seem to have solved this issue. I recently checked my maf sensor while servicing the car, and it was filthy. A quick clean up and car no longer pings on petrol, and runs better on lpg. One of the maf wires looked like something had baked into it. Thank heavens for simple fixes!

Re: Do modern car ECUs advance timing when running on Lpg?

Thanks Gilbert. My car has a CVT so I have no real control over rpm apart from the throttle. It only occurs with a warm engine when feathering the throttle going up hill at slower speeds. It will also do it in "manual" mode when I can select a lower gear. It does not last long and doesn't happen wit...

Re: Do modern car ECUs advance timing when running on Lpg?

Thanks Brian. I have tried running on petrol, including super unleaded, for a few hundred miles and it doesn't seem to improve. It's only a slight ping only at around 1200 revs and is short lived. It is predictable and repeatable. The symptoms are identical to many other owners reports who have no l...

Re: Do modern car ECUs advance timing when running on Lpg?

Thanks again Simon. I'm happy now that the knock sensor is ok. After further searching and reading it seems this problem is quite prevalent in modern subarus , especially in the states, all in the name of keeping emissions lower. Ffs. Dealer service seem to think it's normal apparently. Ah well, gla...

Re: Do modern car ECUs advance timing when running on Lpg?

Well I loosened the knock sensor on the engine block and the pinging was worse, so am I right in thinking the sensor itself is working?. Still didn't get a code, but I did not try disconnecting the electrical plug as it was difficult to get hands on it without moving other stuff.

Has it been mentioned yet that a lean mixture on petrol can cause knock... Lean mixture on petrol could be due to LPG system calibrated too rich. Simon Thanks Simon.
