LPG problems by Formula Power
Many LPG cars have problems, especially back firing. Although LPG is a gas, at the point of ignition, it is harder to burn than petrol. When you install LPG or if already fitted, you should be advised to uprate your ignition leads as in many cases, standard leads to not provide enough energy. Performance HT Leads, 10mm HT Leads from FormulaPower actually gaurantee you a minimum of a 10% saving,...

vauxhall vectra lpg problem by marty9
I wondered if any of you could help? Our car is a Vectra SRI, LPG factory fitted, W reg (2000). We've had the car since October, and have struggled getting advice from anywhere re the LPG side of things. Our nearest Vauxhall dealer that actually deals with LPG is nearly 100 miles away, and to be frank were pretty useless. We have a good local LPG garage, but they're working blind on the car,...

Why no lpg ford/vauxhall? by Robert[_6_]
Hi, Why is there no longer an LPG focus or an LPG astra? I was interested in an LPG car for the savings on fuel cost but it seems they are no longer manufactured. Why? When were the last models made? Thanks.

LPG cost effectiveness in 2010? by Fred[_7_]
Hi, I was driving down the road today and passed a petrol station. The sign said that petrol was 117.9ppl, diesel was 117.9ppl, but lpg was 65.9ppl; so that's almost half the price of the other two fuels. I remember looking for a new car six or seven years ago. I saw a Ford Focus that had an LPG tank in the well where the spare tyre normally goes. I don't know where they put the spare tyre...

Is it more risky buying a 2nd hand car with over 100k on clock that has been converted to run on LPG than a standard petrol one?Could be why...

Gunson's Gastester - Any good? Any good for LPG? by [email protected]
Hello, been a while since I looked in on this group. For those of you who remember - or care - I am still driving my '87 Volvo 740, which I converted to a basic open loop system 9 years ago. MoT was last week, which it passed, but the emissions - on LPG - were a bit marginal to say the least. Pass is =3.500% CO, and mine scored 3.507%. Technically this is a fail, but they're a decent lot where...

Ford Focus LPG, pump knackered by stevet
Hi The LPG pump in the tank of my wifes 51 plate focus started making lots of noise last week, now it seems to have stopped working completely. The engine stalls as soon as it switches to gas and the pump is making very strange groaning noises. It's a factory fit Ford system with an ICOM doghnut tank in the boot. The trouble is that the LPG pump is inside the tank. I'm told that the Ford...

Tyre sealant stuff - which one? by John[_15_]
I've just had my car converted to dual fuel and now have a 67-litre LPG tank in the spare wheel well instead of a spare wheel, so can anyone recommend a good tyre sealant? Each of the tyres is in really good condition with between 6 and 7mm tread depth and the rims are alloys - just in case that makes any difference. Cheers, John
