If the fuel pump is working & it has fuel at the rail, and it has spark on cranking that is a nice strong spark, you might try changing the ECU relay.

A few weeks ago now my mates ED died. Racv said it had spark, but it wouldn't go & blamed it on the LPG system. Got it towed to my place. Tested for spark - none found at all (I dunno how the racv guy thought it had spark). Replaced the coil, then we had spark but it wouldn't start. After doing the ECU fault code scan with the code reader I have, it said there was a fault on the ECU power circuit.

Swapped in a new ECU relay & away it run. Might be worth a shot?

Cheers
