  1. In the pictures above we see how the car is every day. I think it is some kind of panel which is needed to hide all these cables and provide protection from engine heat coming into the vehicle. I hope someone can help me identify this panel so that I can be able to order and buy it as it is absolutely necessary. Thanks.
  2. I haven't heard any noises since then. I just don't feel the cool as cool as I want,... maybe I need to recheck the fuses again,... or maybe it needs ac gas
  3. I forgot the link from where I bought my 5 litre cheap lube,... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/260949350850?ru=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fsch%2Fi.html%3F_sacat%3D0%26_nkw%3D260949350850%26_rdc%3D1#ht_1632wt_1271 60 pounds sterling for 5 litres (this includes the 15 pounds of shipping costs) work around 12 GBP per litre. Most people in UK buy each litre for around 18 GBP so 30% more than what I paid. It is good to have this 5 litre in the boot as you never know when the led will light up unless you look into your engine every now and then. Also, try to keep your 400 ml little bottle handy as
  4. Tyre shaped tanks have a capacity of I think 40 or 50 litres so really it works out to be 35 or 40 litres of filling
  5. Tyre shaped tanks are no good on this car unless you have a petrol station with lpg round the corner of where you live and you are not interested in long lpg journeys,...
  6. More notes: The Battersea boys told me that it would be better that the rubber tubing coming out from the injector into the engine tubes (inlet pipes - don't know what they are but you get the picture) should have been shorter. The shorter the distance the better the efficiency apparently. I am not a pro so I am only writing what I heard,... Also,... Make sure to install a big tank in the boot. Mine is a 100 litre tank. It normally fills to a maximum of 80 litres as petrol stations stop the maximum to their settings,... some fill this to 90 litres, but I have heard this in not good as wh
  7. I forgot to add,... I bought 2 special filler adapters from the Battersea Gas company. 1 type is good for Belgium (maybe France too) and most of Germany, and the other adapter is good for the remaining of Europe. They don't cost much, about 10 pounds sterling each. What you do is once you remove the filler cap with the key you screw on the adapter and then it is like if you are on a country specific filler tap. Very useful for European journeys.
  8. A few notes on the pictures: The tap on the filler has a lockable key, this option is only suitable for UK bayonet fixtures. This is very useful because I had the simple turn lock one which can be removed by kids on the street. That didn't happen to me but somethinng else did. I had removed mine while filling and placed it on the fuel pump at the petrol station and forgot to put it back on. Had I not gotten a new one dust would go inside and obviously something bad would happen. This one needs a small key to remove and as you remove it the tap stays on the key which is on the same keyholder
  9. I will take a couple of pics for you and post them. I'll need about 10 mins because I will also have to resize them for the forum.
  10. Fuel filler cap is mounted on rear side bumper down low while the fuel gauge is located where the cupholders were located, now used as a keyholder instead. I think it would have been nicer to have both in other locations. I have seen some people filling beemers from a proper fuel door, although I don't know how they managed to fit both in there!!!!!! Also the use of cupholders is more important than being able to hide a little nice fuel gauge (and the lubricant led on top of it) If I could, I would have tried to use the a/c console,... there are a few buttons there that have no use whatsoeve
  11. Good luck Ger and happy savings both for your pocket and as a carbon footprint :)
  12. By the way the best site that I know for UK approved lpg installers and petrol pumps etc is the following: http://www.drivelpg.co.uk/
