Their is a valve in the gas pipe feed from the regulator to the inlet manifold ,if you remove this valve and only partially cover the hole with a piece of coca cola can then it will idle but this is a last resort and dangerous so buy a new valve

IF you are on lpg then check that the gas regulator for icing up and stopping the liquid LPG from turning to gas. If it cuts out on petrol check that there is not a problem with the petrol shut off solenoid . Check the LPG cut off solenoid . I suspect a loose connection or wires to either or both or faulty units

Started car running on petrol for 5 minutes with lpg switched on, clicking noise from lpg tank, slight smell of gas, when fuel switched to lpg engine cut out. start again on petrol, switch on lpg again,...


could be number of problems but often this is caused by valve on the inlet manifold which is electricaly operated and then it allows the gas in but it is also vacumn sensitive so a perished rubber pipe could cause it not to sense the vacumn .best advice without seeing it is to visit a mechanic that is conversant with LPG conversion

Running on lpg then stop turn engine off then start engine and drive 20 metres and engine stalls! switch over to petrol and runs ok switch back to lpg and stalls


check that your cooling system if full of coolant. the coolant that keeps the engine cool actually keeps the gas converter from freezing. alternatively is it hard to start of a morning when cold, if so could be butane wax build up from the gas, in the convertor.
