Re: Trip computer won't shut up

used to have that problem in the ZL but it was a malfunction though....needless to say we have the clock back in it now, not the trip computer.

make sure you keep at least 1/4 of a tank as you will stuff up your fuelpump and injectors, because the gunk sits on the bottom of the tank.

P.S. Does anyone know where the fuel filter is on an AU or any other ford and when its meant to be replaced?

I have a dual fuel car, Petrol & LPG. Does this apply to the LPG tank as well? I always keep 1/4 of petrol but I drive with the LPG until empty. Should I be filling up when it gets to 1/4?

AFAIK the injectors do not operate when driving on LPG, it is mixed with the air and pushed through the cyl air intake - Is that right?

Thanks!
