Ford ef xr6 is missing on fuel but runs ok on lpg, ive just changed the map sensor is still doing it, last time it did this it was the hose that goes into the map sensor that blew off but this time it was fine? any ideas of what i can be? its got fairly new au injectors in it, new fuel filter, it still runs on fuel just really rough and is missing, any ideas on what it could be?
thanks

by new au injectors, do you mean the cheap set on ebay? because there was someone on here that got a set of them and six months later they were stuck open i think

yeah i got them off ebay, cant remember what i payed for them 80 bux maybe? yeah could that be causing it to miss only on fuel? i was running it on fuel like 2 weeks ago and now its stuffed.
thanks for the reply to this is the third time i posted this and finally got a reply lol

In my experience with dual fuel cars (all I have owned except one) I have been told to give it a quick 15 min run through on fuel every few days otherwise injectors block.

If you left it two weeks without giving it a go on petrol my guess would be injectors. Bought many of duel fuel cars with same symptoms and a new set of injectors fixed the problem.

Cheers

Add injector cleaner in your petrol, you don't have to add it every tankful, but use it regularly.
Lack of petrol useage will gum the injectors up, not to mention the fuel pump, etc. Petrol system maintaining is important on dual fuel systems.

Especially ethanol added petrol. Ethanol doesn't store well.
