Ping Nikki

Nikki, you got your Disco converted yet?
Finally got to the root of the problems with mine, was nothing to do with
the gas system (OMVL Dream xx1N) in the end, it was an engine management
issue that only showed up on gas for some weird reason! The ECU hadn't set
all it's adaptive rpm/crank sensor settings correctly, which in turn was
causing it not to report misfire fault codes due to a suspect coil pack!! We
were all convinced it was a gas fuelling issue due to the lack of misfire
fault codes.. ah well, fixed now at least.

I'm more than ever convinced of the merits of carbs and distributors :-)

glad you got it sorted finally though.

I sometimes wonder myself...... :-)

> glad you got it sorted finally though.


YOU'RE glad? I wish it'd been sorted towing that behemoth of a trailer back
up North matey, that was sore on the wallet! Glad I did though, it's been
used in anger twice already.
I'm just glad it's finally sorted now, was a bit annoying to say the least
having 72ltrs of LPG in the boot and not being able to use any of it.

jolly good. You may want to hunt a better pump one day - that was a vague
plan I had, never acted on. The one that's on it is only just up to the job
- 's ok if you're only loading light-ish things, but it was a bit of an
effort with land rovers.

You'll also probably find that the pump has only just enough oil in it, and
if it loses any, it won't pump all the way up. You can however add extra
half-way through the process :-)

I took 60 litres of French LPG across France and spain due to my LPG
system taking a holiday of it's own.

Your wallet has my deepest sympathy.

Super releif to get it sorted after.
