confused Falcon won't run on Petrol, Only LPG. Please help.

Hello I have a 2002 Ford Falcon AUIII Sedan and we bought it second hand. It was already converted to run on LPG. It runs fine on LPG but when i switch it to petrol it turns off, I have tried switching it onto Petrol while stationery and while I was moving at around 60 km/h but it just switches off.
I even tried putting the switch in the middle position 1st and then later to petrol but it just wont work.
Can anyone please help me out here.
Thanks in advance

Re: Falcon won't run on Petrol, Only LPG. Please help.

you may find the following may cause your issue;

- Dry Fuel Injectors
- Fuel pump Dry/Failure
- Clogged Fuel Filters
- Lack of power (electrical) to the fuel system

Does your vehicle petrol start or straight gas (LPG) start?

sound like first one you have no fuel getting to fuel pump, blocked filter or line. next person I think you have cold start problem on petrol. all dual fuel vehicles should be run on both at least once a week & don't let petrol tank get too low as you will get muck through delivery system.

yeah i give it a drive on petrol for a good stint at least once a week, runs better on petrol than gas too but i might try some injector cleaner additive next fill.
