I ran out of fuel today and no red light came on.

Though I pressed the switch to change over and it's running with the yellow and red light on? Is this correct?

On mine if both these lights are on it means I am TRYING to run on both fules. It will not run correctly.

Mocki wrote:not sure abbout these new "push button" switche units, but my old "three way" switch unit has 4 green lights and one red, 50 miles a light. the amber on mine means the engine is running, and the red the other side means perperpetrol ( dont know if it even lights up, never use it)

4 greens means full,
3 greens means ive done 50 miles since full
2 greens means ive done 100 since full
1 green means ive done 150 since full
lpg red means i have 50 miles or less to find LPG

i have only ever run out three times, once when the lpg station was unexpectedly out of lpg, and once when the lpg station i planned to fill at had a damaged pump and once when i stupidly drove past the last lpg staion for more miles than i had left.

so, not all led gauges are unreliable, but it does depend on temp, and angle just like a petrol gauge does, which on these vans is just as unreliable. dont go below 50 miles left in the tank is the best i find


Mine work like that as well almost to the letter and I have only run out due do my own stupidity or broken/unavailable pumps
