  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 it is easier to fill the right amount of tube than using the 5 litre bottle. What I do is pour 400ml from 5 litre to the 400 ml bottle and then from the 400 ml bottle into the lubricant box in the engine compartment.
  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 when the temperatures are high the lpg expands,... so when i fill 90 litres I make sure I am travelling a bit first to make it go to the normal safe level which is 80 litres. Otherwise best to keep it in the shade I guess. Not a pro as mentioned, just stuff I've read here and there. There are other types of tanks, in a tyre shape, which go instead of the spare tyre, but this car has the bose system so there is a big bass unit the size of a small tyre instead of a spare wheel. Make sure your installers fit the tank in a way that the boot floor can be lifted so that you get access to the bass system, because you have important stuff there such as the tyre bolts and pick up equipment in case you need to raise your car to remove a wheel. My car doesn't have a spare wheel and I didn't have a tyre repair kit when one tyre went flat. Although I used the car pump system (special unit that fits under the driver seat and works like having an air pump at a petrol station) the hole was so big all the air was coming out so quickly I couldn't move the car to a tyre shop. That was too bad for me as I had to lift the one side of the car and remove the wheel and leave the car at the mercy of bad kids not to kick the thing that was holding the car up in the air which would seriously damage the car (I know I always think of bad senarios!!!!!) but luckily I was in a nice quiet city with good people. I then had to take the wheel by cab to a tyre shop. The Michelin Diamaris 275 40 20 N1 tyres are so rare in shops that I had to get a used dunlop till I got to my destination where I immediately bought a brand new Michelin since the other 3 where nearly new. Porsche had recommended that they install 2 Pirellis instead since they didn't stock the Michelin,... Why pay for 2 types you don't like since you already have a perfect best one,... I was disapointed Porsche don't have this tyre n stock since the N1 means tested and approved by Porsche,...Why insist on Michelins? well ask anyone and you will find that bullet proof cars only use Michelins, but that is off topic stuff,.. maybe I'll write something about it in another thread. I still don't have a tyre repair tube kit because the one I saw said highly flamabe and I often leave the car in direct sunlight,... don't know if it is safe to keep them in the car or if there are special porsche stuff I need to buy,... Anyways,... enjoy your new ride, as with the lpg you will have a completely different car when you want. 1 for the big spender side of you and another for the economy and environmentally side of you :)
  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 as the car keys so there is no way I will ever forget it at a petrol pump,... (I hope not!!!!!!!) I removed the engine cover so you see how they have done the piping for the lubricant: apparently this is wrong as was explained to me by the Batersea Gas people. I have a feeling they are right because with normal driving the lubricant lsts long however when I use the car as a beast it seems to me that it sucks up all the juice,... something do do with the pipes and vacuum as was explained to me,... if you find out any more on this topic from your installers please let me know,... I took a pic of the injectors and how they are installed,... as noted before these are special power handling injectors due to the 450bhp. These were upgraded from the previous owner as the initial ones couldn't handle the full power. Next, the lubrication kit is fitted under a side engine compartment cover where the battery terminals are so that they fit nicely. All I need to do is unscrew 2 plastic screws easily with a key to fill the lubricant when the red led lights up. You will also notice a silver small box back there,... that is where you control how much lubricant you want released through the system. It was set on 8 from the lpg euro gas company when they fitted it but I reduced it to the number 4 seting as I wanted to economise the lubricant. Some Polish installer said the lubricant is of no use at all as lpg is much cleaner etc,... but I say it is better safe than sorry so even half the dose is good enough for me. Again good luck. I am looking forward for your comments and any feedback you get from your installers. :) Take care, Roli
  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 whatsoever,... I don't know if it is easy to get them wire and place the led light and gauge there and how complicated that would be,... maybe some members like Loren could guide you to as if that thing is possible.
  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/
