Hi everyone,

i've noticed over the past month or so (ever since getting an LPG conversion) my BA has been using a fair bit of coolant

I topped it up with over a litre of coolant about 3 weeks ago which has now disappeared

I have looked for leaks and couldn't find any, any suggestions as to which this may be happening?

p.s. car has done 110,000 km

Same thing was happening to me, ended up being the gasket in the gas converter.

if you have a real close look at where the hoses go into your gas converter you will prabably see it leaks ever so slowly at the connections where the fittings go into the convertor itself most do. it should settle down soon as it forms scale around those fittings

I went to my lpg installer and the very small leak in the converter hose doesn't really explain why I lost 2 litres of coolant in a month.

Any other ideas?
