first thing is to make sure it's turned off at the tank, then just disassemble bit by bit back to the tank

yeah as said above, just find the bit you want to take out, then trace it back as far as you can undoing all the screws and bolts as you go.
there will be a relay or 2, copper or flexi line from the converter to the tank, fill line from the fuel flap to the tank, the tank, may have some bits under the dash.
its pretty straight forward.
as long as the tanks off your ok, most tanks have an electronic lock off that wont open without current running to it anyway

if its turned off at tank it should be no problem, there will always be a bit in the lines still so dont freak, unless it keeps p#ssing out you should be fine, when i removed an old set-up from mine to transplant into the next car i got my nephew to help as he is good at everything (show-off) we took everything out but the tank was still a bit heavy he just cracked the shutoff valve a bit open and then after lunch he said let's try it now - i didn't know that he'd just let all the gas out! luckily the car was out in the open on a windy day!

Best way to remove a LPG system, is before you do anything at all, to start & run the car on LPG. Go to the boot, take the cover off the LPG tank & wind the off screw all the way off. Wait until the car stalls - it will be out of fuel....

Then there is no LPG in the lines to leak out & cause a fire hazard. LPG is heavy stuff, it will hang around at ground level unless there is strong wind, it's rather dangerous to just let it out. Any amount of it!

My mate had an accident with LPG, removing a tank from a car & got severe burns to his face, hands & neck. Was rather lucky to not need skin grafts, he wasn't far off that badly burnt!

Don't be lazy or complacent when working with LPG!

Cheers

Yeah, but don't get caught! I wonder how many hours you would get from a 65lt LPG bottle - or should i be counting it in days?

Cheers
