Honestly, you fix one problem and another one rears its ugly head

I'm curious if any of you guys running on LPG have come across this issue....

4.6 HSE, 1997 GEMS, 77'000 miles

Running on petrol, everything is fine and dandy - happy days.

Running on gas I instantly get a lot and I mean A LOT of bubbles in my header tank and it stinks of LPG - the pressure builds up and eventually it vents off through the cap and boy, what a whiff!

I switch back to petrol and everything goes back to normal instantly.

No overheating and in in fact, head gaskets were replaced and heads pressure tested a few thousand miles ago.

The only thing I can think of is the reducer (the only point where engine coolant and LPG get up and close to each other outside the engine block) has somehow sprung a leak internally.

I've Google searched it and i've found a few accounts where this has happened - curious if anyone else has experienced this....

Vaporiser diaphragm as the others have said..

They are pretty cheap to replace. If the link above doesn't have the one you need, then a Google search should find one.

Just an update on this one, I've replaced the reducer and this has cured the problem. As previously mentioned, the diapragm must have split inside. For reference the reducer was the Magic III compact.

Cheers Rob
