not working with fuel

hi, just purchased dual fuel ute. on lpg car starts and runs fine, but if you switch it over to fuel, it will run for 100mts or so then stop. It will not start on fuel. Will start on gas after half hour or so. any ideas will be appreciated. thanks

Lightbulb Re: not working with fuel

Hi...I am having the opposite problem. I have a duel fuel Ford Sedan that worked fine, the one day it started fine on Petrol, but wouldn't switch over(heard no click) to LPG. I discovered the LPG fuse in the instrument panel was blown, so replaced it, by disconnecting the battery.

I started it on petrol, then it clicked over to LPG, so thought it was fine and went inside. The next day, I tried to start it again, but it wouldn't switch over again and found the fuse had blown again.

The LPG fuse is a 7.5, so I tried stronger fuses - the 10 and 15, but they blew too. I asked the guy at the ford spare parts and he suggested it might be something electrical in the LPG circuit. A loose wire, maybe? Next, I am going to take a look at the switch and see if it is the switch - I hope it is not one of the Selanoids, as they are more expensive to fix.

I have the Ford manual for my model, but it doesn't have a great deal about Duel Fuel system in it. Process of elimination I guess, starting from the least expensive and hoping for the best - might have to take it to my mechanic if it starts looking complicated - electrical stuff isn't my forte (little ford joke there).

How did you go with your problem, did you work out what it was? How to fix it?
