Car won't hot start on LPG. Please help me.

My car (tc 250 cortina, dual fuel) does not want to start when the engine is warm, while on LPG. It takes like 10 tries, sometimes more. It will start first go in the morning on LPG, when its cold. Or when its been sitting for a few hours.

The starter motor is cranking away nicely, but the engine just wont fire. It always starts eventually though. I have tried giving it gas, and not giving it gas, when I turn it over, but there seems to be little difference.

What could the problem be?

Expensive to fix?

thanks

Re: Car won't hot start on LPG. Please help me.

Im hazarding a guess here, but im thinking it might have to do with the radiator system???

I had a blocked line once and once the car got hot i couldnt start it, the converter would freeze up. I dont know really, sorry. Strangely enough I have the opposite problem, hard to start when cold, easy when warm.
