Problem with AUII dedicated lpg

Hi Folks, I have an intermittent problem on my ute - it occasionally dies and just before it does this, there is like a loud popping noise as though it is backfiring. When I start engine again, it idles roughly, then when accelarator pressed sometimes 'pops' again and dies. Mechanics have not been able to find problem.
Anyone have an idea of what to look for? I suspect it may be gas related with the pop pop noise,
I would appreciate any suggestions....many thanks

Re: Problem with AUII dedicated lpg

Don't really have much to go on, but I'd be looking at it as a timing issue.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?

Re: Problem with AUII dedicated lpg

Many thanks for the suggestion...would the timing be an issue if it is intermittent? This problem has occurred about three times over the last 6 months. As I live in a rural non-mobile phone area I am hestitant to now drive it...NRMA mechanic has said he can't do any more as he doesn't have an answer.
Mechanics have changes plug leads and various other hoses but still hasn't solved problem.
It has been about 2 months since this last occurred.
I am starting to think that maybe it's an electrical problem such as a bad connector somewhere but don't know where to start, other than go through all connections/plugs and ensure clean connections. I live on a dirt road so plenty of dust/mud etc.
I know that 'dry' connectors can be a problem and can cause intermittent faults??
I will go over car in the next few days when the rian stops, otherwise may attempt to drive to mechanic (about an hour away) and get them to check timing.
Thanks again for your suggestion, it is very much appreciated.
