This Sprint Gas seems to be using Petrol while on LPG I did a test and filled both tanks
ran the car for 504 Klm and filled them both again to the top.
The LPG tank took 50 litres and the Petrol tank took 12.5 litres thats a lot of Petrol
to my way of thinking, I've had LPG on all my cars for many years and that has never
occured before. The driving was some city and mostly freeway !
2006 BF Fairmont!

And it surges its guts out not all the time but when it does its very
severe!
Anyone else ever run into something like that ?

dont they generally start on petrol then run on gas? that would be why its using petrol if its doing that
did you drive basically the whole 504km without having to start the car or was it getting turned offf and on a fair bit?

What sprint gas system is it?

If it's a vapour injection system it will start on petrol and only change over to gas once it reaches a preset temp and rpm, They normally change over on deceleration

Perhaps. My cars are/were both Duratec 3.0 V6's.... and that was the way the ECU Came pre-programmed. Theyve been tweaked of course since.
