Hi Guys,

I'm about to put LPG on my Fairmont due the lovely price of fuel!!!

Is anyone able to tell me if it is possible to hock up the gas to the Distance to Empty on the Trip Computer???

Thanks,

Get them to wire the gas level through to the original fuel guage instead of the LED one. The trip computor readings given from this are fairly accurate, but will only read off the fuel that is being used, not both at once (distance to empty).

Mine is hooked up to the distance to empty on the trip meter but mine is also Tickford factory gas.

Cheers

If your LPG tank sender is compatible, yes. Wire in a 5pin relay.

It's wired into the LPG switch so the one switch does the LPG and the fuel gauge.
