Hi to everyone with these vans/MPV's, today i visited an LPG installer repairer to ask advice on the LPG side of these vehicles in regards to maintanace/servicing etc, i was informed that the LPG system requires NO sort of servicing as there is no parts/filters to service. He also said the system only ever needs to be looked at if you can smell LPG due to a possible leak or it doesn't work/run.
He also mentioned the lights guage and how quickly the lights on mine go out after filling up with gas. He informed me that no lights or guages have yet been perfected to give an acurate reading of how much you have so rule of thumb is when the red light shows fill up again. I dont have a trip meter guage on my van so i cant tell what the MPG is but i suspect its doing about 30MPG on the gas (ish). My van is bang upto date with its servicing (last week) so it now running really well on both gas and petrol so im happy at the moment and just getting used to driving it. Its certainly different to my Daimler/Jaguar but fun.
I also asked him about changing over on the move, he said that it should'nt make a difference but im decided that i will make the choice before i start up each day as at speed changing fuel could cause a detonation of either fuel in a cylinder which could damage the engine. Caution is my thought on this issue.
I just thought i'd share my info with you all. Hope it has been of use to anyone. Regards. Brendan
