    Arr right, as the 05 is the YH and is known for its fueling problems. Does the LPG convertion have some sort of switch over when its running low on fuel? All I can think of is some shorting out of the fuel level sender with the pump or something with the LPG conversion????

    ive also notice aswell if i put £10 in petrol the computer still shows no miles and the petrol light still flashes even though its on a quater of a tank i know you dont get much miles to a tenner these days but surely it should still show something so maybe it could have something to do with fuel sender but would that course the problem i have...

    Unless you put a few gallons in, the gauge, fuel comp, etc won't register it.
