Not mine... But I hate running on petrol as the van feels rough.... Because LPG makes it sooo smooooth.
Why not PM jed and ask him about these issues he had?

My LPG set-up needs a tweaking I think as it seems to be running a bit rough on gas but not on petrol (flat spots when accelerating)

Been a while since I had Steve look over it plus I wan't him to have a look at another problem I get when I change over to petrol from LPG. As soon as I stop the van cuts out and then needs a damn good cranking to get it started again (horrible smell from exhaust) only to cut out the next time I stop. However once parked overnight the problem goes away so I think it's a fuel feed carb issue. Anyway it's been bugging me for far longer than I should of let it and it's time to ring Steve for some tlc now he's back after new year.
