    Default lumpy idol

    Hello,

    When my car is running on lpg it has a very lumpy idol but when i then flick it back to petrol its fine im not sure if this is supposed to do this also you have to rev the car to 3.5k to get it started on lpg but on petrol its fine

    Any ideas on what this could be?

    Cheers

    Ray

    Not aware of many people that have experienced "trouble free" running on LPG conversions ... Do you know which company installed the system? Might be worth contacting them directly as the vehicle is running fine on petrol

    In that case ..You don't mention the mileage, or service history, but I would immediately suspect that the LPG filter(s) need to be changed, and possibly the vaporiser needs to be cleaned out of any 'heavy ends' (oily residue) that come out of the LPG when its vaporised.
    The filters are relatively easy to change yourself - find out which ones you need (either call Vaux service dept, or have a look at the old ones first) and then order replacements (again, either from vaux, or fleabay - one seller does all types of filters for £5 plus postage)
