Dunno 'bout that area, sorry. FWIW, mine is running an OMVL DreamXXIN
system, seems to be running fine. Not doing a lot of miles just now, so no
idea of mpg figures as yet. Mpg will be difficult to work out properly with
this system, as it starts on petrol and waits for 2 conditions to be met
before changing to gas; 1.- 30 second timer to allow the lambda probes to
reach operating temp and start switching, 2. - waits until engine coolant at
minimum of 20 degrees to prevent vapouriser pressure fluctuations. Those
times/temps are adjustable but I've got them down as low as poss.
Had a major problem with it on initial setup, it appeared to setup ok then
after about 10 miles of driving it started running rough for some reason,
same on petrol. Diagnostic test said right bank lambda probe had failed,
replaced probe, no difference! It was cured by a 20-odd minute session on
testbook to reprogramme the engine ecu (£26 at the local main $tealer) and
it's been fine since so dunno what caused it, as the gas side has been
re-setup again since then and it has run for 4 days now with no probs. The
main ecu was seeing both lambda probes but for some reason was only
adjusting the fuelling on the left bank, allowing the right bank to run
fully lean. It would appear to have been a coincidence, but an annoying one
none the less.
FWIW also, you can fit a 90ltr (400mm dia.) tank on the left side of the
boot, still leaving nearly 2/3 usable and the larger of the split rears to
fold. It's tight, with only 3mm clearance at the rear door speaker cover,
but it goes in! I cut the side box side trim panel around the multivalve and
pipes for a neat finish, still keeping the cubby box lid etc.
Let me know how you get on with yours. Have you had it hooked up to testbook
to see if the BCU has anything to do with the lighting issues? Unlikely, but
might be a last resort.
