Car would drive how ever when you would slow down and your at idle the car wouyld turn off, constant problem...
Me my dad and friend were working on it for a few hours we were playing with the richness and leanliness screw did s**t-all, we cleaned the gas compartment (name) were the rubber outing and and gas flows through where the before mentioned screw comes through, We were playing with the lpg mixer which seemed to be at fault, we were working with numerous things... which all didn't work.
I came to the conclusion that there was too much air going through with too little gas being mixed.
Anyways my mum just told me that the car went past a mechanics today and a little screw was adjusted or turned and it all werks now! And no it wasn't the rich/lean adjusting screw :lol:

What a waste of a good nights sleep, at leat my knowledge on LPg has increased! :wink:

it would have simply been the idle mixture screw.
my car did this aswell.. as they get old they can adjust themselves a little bit from vibrations etc.
just stalls when coming to a stop.

All i can suggest, if working on LPG in your garage AND you have a gas hot water heater and you somehow rupture the LPG line going to the car, dont go inside for a cup of coffee while you ponder how to fix it.

Hehe, quite a good story that one was. What got me was in the report they said "Coming inside for coffee and to ponder the problem saved our lives, otherwise we would have been out there!"... If they had stayed in the shed and fixed the leak rather than going in for coffee, wouldn't the incident have never occured, rendering them still alive and with a lot less damage to the house?

Yes it was an interesting read, gas tank had no shut off valve! Hard to believe that.

yes thats what i dont get...

if the engine is OFF ie not runnign there shoudl be no gas flow!
only gas in the line from engine to convertor not alot at all.
now if they had done a DOGY job of shorting the lock off at the tank then gas would still flow wiht the engine off.....

Your right, thats on newer tanks, however even older tanks had a manual shut off valve. It would be a very dodgy install to remove the valve, and for what reason?
