Re: over heating on gas

hey dangerxy,
Have you stuck a gas analyser probe up its butt? Maybe she's running too lean on LPG but is runnning okay on petrol.

cheers

Re: over heating on gas

will give it a try, doesnt feel like it is at all but not to familiar with gas or what it does, i thought it burnt cooler but maybe it does burn hotter therefore something to do with cooling system? so buy increasing the amount of gas it may cool it dowm?

Re: over heating on gas

nah gas is the opposite of petrol, if the LPG is too rich it will run hotter, opposite to normal.
