None open today.

What suburb are you in?

If Moorabbin, try Leavenswell road - that is where I got my gas fitted.

Or on Warrigal road - gas fitter there too.

What is the problem with your car as it won't run on LPG?

i posted last week about it, i pulled the gas tank out to be restamped and when i put it back in and put gas in it i started it on petrol and pushed the button and it died, it seems to be changing to gas but you can realy smell the gas under the bonnet like its flooding on gas or something.

it sat at a mechanics allday yesterday and cost me $150 and the problem still isnt fixed, thats why i saked for no dodgy ones.

If the mechanic didn't fix your car, then you shouldn't pay.

Go back and ask him to try again.

My converter has frozen up a few times over the years If you get air in the coolant it may get an air lock. Open the heating onto hot and go for a drive for 15 mins or so to flush the air bubbles out... Make sure you have plenty of coolant.
I have found that some gas fills are s**t and there is a filling station I avoid in taylors lakes. You may have had air in the lines after the testing.

My XF is freezing the converter up at the moment too. Will be flushing it these weekend as it looks like the radiator and converter could do with a good flush - that should cure my problem!
