SOURCE: Fuel Delvery

you really need to test fuel pressure/did you replace filter under car/you should also replace fuel regulator on top frt of eng./but most likely the fuel pump has moved on the mounting bracket and allowing fuel to leak back into the tank (low pressure)

It could be the mass air flow sensor. Its mounted to the side of the air cleaner. Just unplug the electrical connection to bypass the unit. If this is the problem the vehicle should run smoothly.

SOURCE: E85 fuel in a regular gas tank

Siphon out as much of the E85 as you can and fill the tank with good gasoline and drive it like you stole it for a while. You can't drain a tank without removing it and the fuel filter isn't going to catch anything in the E85. This is what I would do anyway.

theres a problem with the pipe that goes from the gas tank to the gas cap.Look under neath and see if the hose is pinched or bent.Another cause could be who ever owned it before had the tank out and they messed up the hose when they put it back in but that is differently the problem..

So you are one of the people that blind oncoming drivers because you illegally installed HID conversion kits for your headlights. My advice is to put it back to stock.

When putting gas in the tank of 2009 F150, the gas overflows when the gauge shows only 5/8 full. I cannot fill the tank.Any suggestions


Tank is full. The level swith is bad. Have to pull the bed to get to the fuel pump. Pump and fload is all in one. If you work on this yourself, replace the whole unit with Ford parts, do not use after market it will not last. If under warranty just go to dealer. Good luck..

Is it OK to install LPG tank to Nissan A32? Would there be any problems in the future in regards to the engine to some other parts of the car? what are the advantages and disadvantages of installing it?


Virtually any vehicle can be converted to LPG. The key is understanding what is available in your area and what is more cost effective. This will involve a conversion kit. It is not as expensive in fuel injected and Direct injected motors as it is in carburetor motors but there is still considerable cost. You are talking about adding a Pressure tested tank and the cost for that will depend on whether you go natural Gas or Propane. Both are doable. Both require a regulator be installed. Natural Gas typically requires 1300 PSI in the tank where Propane is at a much lower pressure. Both are cleaner burning and theoretically, you should notice I used the word "Theoretically", as both natural gas and Propane are said to have an equivalent Octane level of 104 versus the high octane rating for unleaded or 93 to 97. Because of the higher Octane you should get better mileage but in conversions it doesn't always work out that way. It has been my experience that in factory built LPG vehicle to experience a higher mileage rating but that is not always so in Conversions. You also have to consider that unlike Gas powered vehicles in most states you are required to get a registration sticker that is sold to at a cost of your estimated usage because you are taxed once for the gas instead of by the gallon. You have to estimate how many gallons of LP gas you are going to use and pay the taxes up front instead of as you use it. If you choose propane and have Propane used in your house you can have what is called a wet line installed in that tank and be able to fill up at home, this is not an option for the Natural Gas conversion. At first glance that 73 cent a gallon for running propane is very tempting but when you add to it the upfront cost of taxes every year that actually ends up running some $4 a gallon making it more expensive that regular gas powered vehicles. I looked into all of this when I considered opening a conversion business a few years ago and got the shock of my life. Then working for a company that used conversion vehicles that ran on LP gas found out that on LP, in the conversions anyway, they were prone to vapor locks and slow acceleration or hesitation at acceleration. It wasn't so bad in the vehicles that started out from the factory on LP but those were still problems. Add to that that there was not a marked improvement in mileage, in fact there was a loss in most cases, it is not cost effective to make this conversion.

Out of propane in my truck how do i fill it up


Is the engine in your 1989 Ford F-250 truck fitted to run on LP (propane) gas, or are you referring to the R-12 freon refrigerant in the Air Conditioning system? If you mean the refrigerant, production of R-12 (dichlorodifluoromethane) was phased out several years ago, and if you can find a old can of R-12, whoever has one will charge you an arm and a leg for it. You can get a kit to convert the air conditioner over to R-134a, but due to the risk of injury, this job is better left to a professional. There are a few R-12 replacement products that don't require a licensed technician, such as "Freeze 12" (http://www.freeze12.com). To add this you just need a tap and hose kit to connect to the low pressure line into the compressor and fill with the refrigerant. The can will get very cold and any leaking gas could cause skin damage from freezing, and accidentally connecting to the high pressure line will cause the can to blow up, so be careful. If you need propane, just call a propane company that fills home tanks to come out and refill your truck tank.
