Just wondering whether anyone has one the above available, with the price of petrol recently every time I go to a wreckers these are GONE!

Seen on EBAY for 89 - 190, the latter in my opinion is a little steep (Yep I'm a scrooge)

Thanks in advance,
Robert

The item your looking at is advertised regularly on ebay - the guy must have a batch of them - if you keep watching them you'll have a good chance of picking one up for $90. The last one just ended a day or two ago with no bids.

The dual fuel computer has 2 maps for the ignition timing as one of the fuels prefers less initial advance than the other. (Not sure which is which)

Also there is the functionality to control the lock-off valves that are associated with running lpg. If there are any further questions please ask.

Robert.

Well according to ebay the tag codes are 96 DT 12A650 GE 6TGE
the one on my car currently is 96 DT 12A650 GD 6TGD

So it looks like the last 4 characters determine what the computer is and hence it's functionality. (whether it is a manual computer, XR6, GLi or "Police special" for example.)

Hope this helps,
Robert
