I doubt if there are LPG kits available for Diesel engine? LPG is for petrol engines only. However there are other kits available which will partially use LPG and diesel to run engine, these are not popular.
i have a dealers manual somewhere and i put it somewhere safe and i cannot find it ,typical but if its converted right it should start on lpg with no problem without starting on petrol but it all depends on the type of conversion and who fitted it i suppose .I have a 4.0 litre version and what a tool its just so impressive only wish i could get a few more weddings to do in to help pay the road tax here in spain
How close to the exhaust is the supply line as the lpg supply line should be cold until it gets into the regulator not warm.Is the supply line heat shielded as it enters the engine bay or getting a full dose of exhaust heat?Is it the vapor injection gas system or the old style.What regulator and system are you using?OMVL ?sprint gas or other cheaper variants?It really sounds like a fuel delivery issue as you are not getting the volume of gas required at higher speeds.Commodore engines have issues with thier water system having air bubbles that cause air locks in the regulators by the time youve jumped out of the car to check for freezing it appears to be fine.You may have restrictions in the lpgas filters/locks.The water hoses,2,should be hot so hot you cannot leave your hand on them and if not freezing of the reg once again becomes the issue.Also the water hoses must be fitted in such a way that the top hose is suction and the bottom hose forces water into the reg,this is done to assist in eliminating potential air lock problems.To sum up your symptoms are consistant with poor water ciculation.
if you use lp and loose power it is a problem with the lp regualter, this acts the same way as a fuel pressure regulater on a fuel injected vehicle. you need to have this replaced. please rate this thanks
