I got my gas system installed about a year ago. And ever since then i believe it runs rich. Im luck to get between 300 - 350km on a 80L tank of gas, which is what i get if i run petrol. Can this be right. I've taken it back to Ezy Gas to re tune it every few months. But then about a week or 2 after its chewing through the gas like anything. Is the any way that i can tune the gas myself?

If you will get computer program and cable to connect to Sprint Gas computer you can do changes in system.

Interface cable on base of MAX232 with suitable connector. I have wiring diagram of this interface cable somewhere. Computer program (from AEB) to communicate with Sprint Gas system (295/296 in my case).

I have heard that all they do is rev in neutral to 3000rpm then swap to gas and they do that a few times and its tuned????

That mileage actually seems right - use appx. 20% more LPG.

On Highway should be heaps better... but for enthusiastic drivers you'll suffer around town (although cheaply)
