Easiest and cheapest way of getting 20 or so KW back out of my car is removing the LPG restriction near the T/B and run it on petrol for a while, just for curiosities sake.

How would i go about this? Is it a simple job? Anything to be worried about LPG wise?

Cheers.

Make sure you turn the tap off at the tank before you remove the LPG gear, if you have a wiring issue you could cause LPG to leak where it shouldn't be.

I'm not touching my convertor, i just want to get rid of the restriction next to the Throttle body.

What will that involve?

that will involve removing the mixer ring and turning the LPG OFF AT THE TANK.

In this order, start engine on lpg, while running turn service tap OFF at the tank, let engine run untill it stops. turn key off, remove earth wire from gas lock at the converter, remove mixer ring.


LPG is not a game, and shouldn't be f**k with.

This should be taken note of! Many have blown their-self up playing with their lpg.

Safety first! Turn the LPG off at the tank by the manual valve!
