idle revs seem lower than usual in my EB

yo everyone, i've just got a question to ask you all. recently my car's idle revs seems alot lower while its in gear, the reason i notice this is because sometimes when i am at the lights it almost seems its about ready to stall, also the interior is vibrating alot more while i am staionary which is probably due to the change in vibration of the engine which would lead to resonance of the interior.
its a series 2 EB falcon and its dual fuel, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. if any of you guys now the reason or have a list of possible problems it would be great to let me know.

also could it be the fuel i am using i filled up twice now at that Safeways service stations and i dunno thta fuel seems sketchy... but its cheap :)

Yo dude

You could have a vaccum leak somewhere. I'd also check your accelerator cable, our EB idled like crap for ages and we thought it was ECU, then vaccum, fuel filter, fuel pump etc....before one day we thought the accelerator cable may have just stretched enough to let the idle drop. Tightened that up and hey presto....

As for the fuel, change your filter and run a couple of tanks of optimax in it. I use Safeway shit sometimes too, never had any trouble although I once a month run a tank of Optimax thru it
