Not had it done yet. I've made a few enquiries, and am waiting for a couple
of them to get back to me, should be tomorrow. Didn't get time before we
went away, kids been back at school since 31st, but been more concerned
about why we have no brake lights coming on and only one reverse light.

So if anyone has any recommendations for LPG fitters within 30 miles of
Leicester we'd appreciate it!

My colleague's old man does it. He's in Solihull (just a bit further than
30 miles)...

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.
Badger.

Thanks, I'll have a look at the website in a bit. He just wants to be near
enough that it isn't too much hassle if he needs to go back for any reason.

We want the newest Discovery doing.

Thanks for the info. I'll print it out when I've been and fetched some ink
for the printer. That is just the sort of information Bruce likes!!!

I certainly will, and no we've not had it hooked up to testbook yet. It
would be the last resort. There's a bloke over the other side of Leicester
who trained at the main dealers in Leicester, who we'll take it to if its
something that can't be fixed here.

Bruce had a look at the trailer wiring yesterday, but couldnt get the screws
out, so has applied some WD40 overnight, and hopes they come out later. I'm
going to go out if they don't!

I just bought a converted jaguar from this guy
http://www.go-lpg.co.uk/
he's 200 miles from me and well worth the trip.
down to earth bloke and he knows his stuff, he's currently running
around in a range rover he's just converted so he's no stranger to the
green oval.
I very highly recommend him.
Names Steve.

Well I'm collecting various numbers to call about the LPG, which I shall
settle down to do next week. More concerned about this brake light
situation on the Discovery.

Bruce has checked the trailer wiring, re-checked all the bulbs and fuses and
had all the lights off and made sure that everything is connected properly,
and its still the same. Going to make a phone call to the the bloke who did
the engine on the other Discovery.
