I bought my cables from the UK, had a lot of fun configuring my lpg system. Found the car can start on LPG even on a cold morning, (Parnel tried to tell me that it just wasn't possible, they just didn't want to use the function) but it is very sluggish until the coolant starts to warm up around 40deg.

Bugger paying $200 for the cables.

Did you try/use the LPG spark plugs?

I am thinking about getting the spark plug's as well to suit my vehicle "Brisk LOR15LGS" equivalent to ZGR6B-11

One time i had ZERO petrol in the car & needed to start the vehicle on LPG, i always new that there was a LPG cold start function as the LPG system was installed by my mate. Anyway it wasnt enabled on my setup. I'm wanting to check out all the other things that are available but haven't been turned on.

I've got the Autogas system with Jet 17 injectors. Tried the Jet 21's at the start but the car was running very rough. So we opted for the smaller injectors.

That's the plugs I run all the time. They are the E series Xr6 plug & suitable for LPG. slightly different heat range plug & I also think slightly longer electrode on them compared to a std plug for an E series 6cyl. Electrode protrudes into the combustion chamber a little more, there are theories as to why this is a good thing on LPG & performance engines.

Since my earlier playing I have changed the gap from the 1.0 factory gap to a 0.8mm gap, get a lot better throttle response from it.

Why not just use the NGK ZGR6b-11? They are easily & widely available. With a 0.8mm gap they perform really good. Factory Egas car's run a really tight gap, I think it's either 0.8 or 0.7mm!

Well given the fact that up until 1 hour ago i found this out, i always used the BPR6EY-11's or something like that. Stupid idiots at the car parts place's always give me the wrong plugs.

The only reason i asked you about the Brisk LOR15LGS is because the guy that does the LPG site in the UK highly recommends them for all LPG vehicles. I wanted to see if you or anyone else had tried them.
