Re: info for alternative connection with dual tank.

The two tanks will empty at roughly the same rate so if one is half full, then other will be too (unless there is a big variation in temperature between the two). LPG gauges never are accurate, if it gives you a rough idea, that's as good as you are going to get, just reset the trip meter every time...

Re: Prins VSI reducer rebuild question

Box spanner should be fine. Spark plug socket will be the wrong size, the 14mm plugs use a 21mm hex while the 10mm plugs use a 16mm hex.

Re: Chrysler Voyager

To give you a very rough idea, I've got an 80l tank on my car so a fill from totally empty is around 65 litres. With LPG costs varying anywhere between 50 and 70p per litre, that will cost £32.50 to £45.50 for a full tank. No idea what a Voyager does to the gallon but I would expect it to be around ...

Re: Toroidal tank installation

It does need to vent to the outside world. LPG CoP 11 is the code of practice for installations but it is copyright material and only available by buying it. There's a lot of installs running around in the UK that have either been converted in Poland or over here but to the Polish standard (if, havi...

Re: Anywhere in Surrey, Sussex or NW Kent to service my LPG system?

You're also going to struggle finding someone that still understands a mixer system. I run singlepoint mixer systems on a pair of P38 Range Rovers and they are pretty simple to do it yourself with only a filter to change and a check of the calibration. Any idea what controller it has fitted?

Re: Pop and bang on LPG

Although it would need to switchable. There's a kid in our village with a Clio that has obviously had a similar mod done. Sounds pretty good during the daytime but a real pain in the arse when he comes home after a night out and you can hear it popping and banging from half a mile away......

Re: LPG mileage

Under a Luton Transit you could probably fit a pair of cylinders giving you getting on for double that. Has the tank been changed from original? It isn't really possible to answer how many litres it will use for 80 miles, it'll depend on what the fuel consumption normally would be on petrol (bearing...

Re: LPG mileage

That's ridulous, a tank that size is the sort of thing that would be fitted to a Smart car. That may be all it will take to fill but what size is the actual tank? Either in litres or dimensions.

Re: Peugeot 307 1.4 problems

Don't forget that LTFT doesn't necessarily have to be at zero because of the reason for them. The petrol ECU will have it's pre-defined fuelling strategy that assumes that fuel pressure, MAF response, etc is as it was when the car came from the factory. If anything changes from the norm for whatever...

Re: Shell removing lpg

Not really anywhere for an underslung, not without having to fabricate a replacement petrol tank to free up some space there. I've got a 680 x 270mm 78 litre tank in the wheel well at the moment but could squeeze in a 720 x 270mm but that wouldn't give me much extra. If I went for a full toroidal, I...

Re: Shell removing lpg

Didn't know about Morrisons. I only go to Felixstowe to pick up cars I've imported so it's daytime during the week so they would be open. The times I would ideally need a second tank are the times when I need as much space in the car as I can get. It's bad enough having the spare wheel in the boot t...

Re: LPG convert a Honda Type r fn2 2007

Yes, the LPG system piggy backs on the petrol system so any alterations to the petrol fuelling would also affect the LPG fuelling. It might, but not necessarily, need to be recalibrated but as long as the reducer and injectors are adequate for the revised fuelling, it should be fine. I'm fortunate t...

Re: LPG convert a Honda Type r fn2 2007

Getting on for twice as much as putting it on one. If you are scrapping the car then there's not as much as it won't matter what you butcher to get the system off but if you want to convert the car back to just petrol then after the gas system is removed you got to plug the holes in the manifold, re...

Re: LPG convert a Honda Type r fn2 2007

You'll find a lot of installers will recommend one particular kit as that is the one they fit to everything whether suitable for a specific application or not. Honda engines are notorious for valve wear, even on petrol, so will need a valvesaver of some sort fitting.
