    Hi dose anyone no of LPG Auto Converters that can fix a Technocarb EFS600. it turns of from petrol and will not run on lpg.
    It is fitted on a Ford Triton V10 6.8l.
    I have found that if I pull the fuse on the battery it will not start on petrol, there is power to the unit as the switch lights up and the relays click over to stop petrol, and open the LPG solenoids but nothing.
    Have LPG from the tanks up to the venture mixer.

    There is a pre-set sequence that the system should follow, including purging of the gas lines, checking gas pressure and vapouriser temperature etc.

    From start-up, it should start on petrol, wait until the vapouriser is up to temperature, check gas pressure and if OK it will initiate the purge cycle and then switch over at a pre-determined engine speed.

    Check that the temperature and pressure sensors are OK, most are tiny wires that get damaged or corrode easily. Check that the solenoid valves on the tank(s) are actually working, just popping on and off doesn't mean they are working. Gas valve coils are 12V but run at 14V on vehicles.

    If it has an ECU, can you plug a laptop in and check the parameters? Most modern ones do, we check ours on the laptop to check that air sensors, Lambda sensors etc are all OK.

    We fitted gas to our son's V8 last year, mine is already on it, but ours are multi-point, not single point as the OP's.

    Check the DriveLPG website for a dealer:

    www.drivelpg.co.uk/approved-installers/

    Almost certainly it's going to be a gas valve solenoid coil or a sensor.

    tried to find the temperature wire, think it is taged in to the wiring some where.
