Tickford LPG Converter

Does anyone know if the LPG converter used in the factory LPG system on an EL would be able to be integrated into a standard LPG system from an aftermarket manufacturer.

I know the Tickford LPG Computer is combined with the vehicle ECU, but would there be any aftermarket management systems or what ever that would work with the converter, without incuring great costs that is.

Re: Tickford LPG Converter

I would imagine that it would, as a converter is a converter is a converter. I think it is really only the computer thing that runs the system, and any aftermarket system should work. Check out the tuning info on this site, very interesting. If you find the Tickford computer, please let me know, as I am trying to find mine, and I'm not even sure what it looks like.

Re: Tickford LPG Converter

WHat you'll find is that the LPG computer is actually 'combined' with the vehicle ECU. thats what makes me unsure on how it'll work.

Re: Tickford LPG Converter

are you saying that Tickford totaly replace the ECU, or "add on" to what is there. My logic says that they would add on, but then.....

Re: Tickford LPG Converter

the Tickford system is closed loop and uses (as you said) the ECU to control it..By closed i mean it uses your oxy sensors to measure oxygen left in your zorst after combustion and with the help of the ECU adjusts the fuel::air ratio dozens of times per second.
Most after market setups use 2 solenoids and a seperate comp to run them.. If you were to use existing solenoids and the existing flow valve you could use the Vialle convertor.. A Convertor is just that,, add hot water and it converts the LPG from a liquid to a gas


I know i have gone from the Vialle convertors to OMVL amd Landi ones but i could find out 100% for you if you wanted to go the other way round
