    Vehicle : Vectra SRi Dual Fuel NAV

    Question Erratic revs on start & EML on under load.

    Hiya guys I've been having a few problems recently with my 1.8 dual fuel. On a cold engine start the revs are a bit erratic (going up & down) but it seems to idle ok. & every other day I get EML on when I put my foot down. Has anyone got an idea on what the problem could be? I'm in the process of getting the faults read, but just wondering if these symptoms are related to a particular problem. Any help and advice will be much appreciated.

    Just to be clear. All these problems are coming up on petrol mode. My gas mode is already knackered.

    I spoke to a gas specialist over the phone he reckons I've got a ceased injector. So the cars not working on gas @ the moment. I haven't used it on gas for months. It's been running fine on petrol until just recently.
