    Not made any difference. The installation instructions said DO NOT connect the lambda wires. Why are they there then? Think i will connect, should help things

    Interesting reading Fuel system basics (lpgc.co.uk)

    The stoichiometric ratio for burning LPG in air is between 15.6:1
    Maybe explains your rich reading on Nano.

    Valid point, hadn't thought of that. But, i think the oxygen content should be the same? As it is, the emissions are off on petrol as a result and have to reset

    Tell me your tracking is out without telling me your tracking is out. 3 year old tyre, me thinks the last place to work on Sandy were cowboys.

    Thankyou so much Alan I am blessed to have good friends :)
    Almost shame to paint it this clean so I’m not decided on colour yet

    but I do like the design :D
    bolts too :cool: seems straight forward enough where it goes now.

    I feel another masterpiece coming on...

    I thought that, I think I am hiding from that outcome as I replaced it not that long ago, admittedly a second hand unit. What makes it worse is based on this tyre wear, I think my old one had more life left in it... assuming it isn't tracking... I hope it is tracking.

    On the manual box I could turn the front wheel using a torque wrench on the hub-nut set to 70nm if I teased it around slowly. That was with a refurbed VCU from Ascrofts. My memory is a bit crap but I think the old one took 130Nm of force and that was definitely scrubbing tyres.

    I'll get back out with a knuckle bar, I don't have the luxury of a torque wrench, but a Google tells me if I can't rotate last 45 degrees, the VCU is goosed. Given my terrible MPGs recently. I think I know what is wrong. Ashcroft don't seem to do referb units anymore, so I am looking at 500 for a new one... plus 2 front tyres (only one is goosed, but only changing one also seems silly). Wonder if parts places take Klarna. :oops:

    [Edit: My VCU is goosed. Currently sporting a RWD Range Rover while I source a refurb or new unit that doesn't break the bank... plus 2 new tyres... and some TBox juice. Fun!]

    Ones that are gone you can stand on the breaker bar and it won’t budge, solid. They should be little stiff.
    Give Ashcroft a ring to check, website says no longer stocked but you never know. £320 for brand new Ashcroft would be nice
