must have been running rich because of the crappy readings from the 02 sensor.

man u guys are all luckyy, id be lucky to get 280 out of a 65 litre tank and thats not even thrashing it, its a 2-3 month old impco gas system in my ed, i dont know y i get s**t k's but fuk id luv to get as much as u guys, i get bout 120 out of first quarter of the tank and then bang needle jst drops n drops n drops, wat u guys rekon it could be? oxy sensor?
change the o2 sensor,they wear out and get the car tuned by a good gas mechanic,i had mine tuned,it had loads of grunt but no economy,went to a gas mate and had it tuned to exhaust,bit less grunt but better economy.many factors to consider,gear box slip-wear,tuning of motor,stop start driving,flat or hills,octane rating of gas-some better than others,cruising speed and take off,flat tyres. all or some of the above.

who knows a good tuner in sydney??

i use petrol on start ups then change to gas when engine temp is up and when my gas runs out my fuel is also near empty from half tank..

switching through both for one week -full tank lpg, -half tank petrol i get like 400km and its freakin me out..ive looked for leaks and cant find any.
also injectors were cleaned 3 months ago and leads and plugs were supposed to have been changed in march.

managed to get approxx 320-340km out of lpg until it whistles, and on petrol 400km, but combined nowhere near 700km.

I used to get around 390-400 on a 55 litre tank of gas.

It's now only getting 250-280 though now because it was meant to be taken back for it's 1000k service however it is now 2000k over that.
