I suppose you could just keep a splash of petrol in the tank and switch back on the fly for when you need the extra 20% performance for a 'safe overtake' ;)


That's exactly what I do with the S4. I keep a quarter tank of optimax in it so Maximum GLFery is but the press of a button away.

when you crack off the nut and break the seal to change the filter be aware that there is lpg under high pressure in the line back to the tank and its solenoid.

 

first time you crack off the nut you will crap yourself.

 

If the solenoid at the tank is fucked then you may have an issue as the entire tank is going to vent itself, the o ring in the filter will be hanging out (they do that pretty much as soon as you crack off the nut) and you will be unable to seal it back up again. + LPG is very cold, if it does vent do not get in the way of it

 

easiest way to do it is run the tank until empty. then leave it idling on LPG until it stalls. work in a well ventilated area before you replace the filter.

 

There is a nice magnet in mine which was covered in fur last time I changed the filter! where the fuck does that come from?

I actually do just that - and of course it always starts up on petrol.

People always seem surprised when I tell them the CX starts better from cold on LPG than on petrol.

I don't think that's an option on mine - unless I'm about to be educated.......

Mine neither-it's a modern Prins VSi setup so (I believe) relies on water temperature to vaporise the LPG.

 

Out of curiousity, has anyone changed the filter on a Prins VSi setup? I did it on my old Jeeps OMVL system but can't find how to do it on the Prins system.

 

To echo Richardthestag on the Jeep I closed off the valve on the tank and ran it til it stalled-this took a LONG time, I then cracked open the filter and shat myself at how much gas came out...

Hmmm a new caliper from Rock Auto is less (including shipping and taxes) than breakers want for second hand ones.  New ones are £400+ from UK suppliers.

Mine has started making a whiring noise from the rear belt that drives the high pressure diesel pump.

It's almost certain that the bearings have gone dry in the tensioner.

To get the rear belt and tensioner off it seems that a sound deadening bulkhead panel has to come out, and to get then off the A/C and coolant have to be drained.

It worth putting LED bulbs in the rear number plate illuminators because they bulbs run hot and burn out the bulb holders.

I still have a bad back from converting the screen to Android and fitting a towbar.

 

This was useful:-

I suffered partial brake failure on holiday, because the vacuum pump has filled up the pipe to the servo with oil and this had rotted out the gromment.  The brake servo currently has about 1cm of oil sloshing around in it.  Landrover, Peugeot and Citroen all did safety recalls because of this but Jaguar did not so I am currently discussing this with them and VOSA.

 

and this was fun:-

That's a lovely motor and benefits from the minor facelift they did for the diesels (removed the rubbing strips from the sides, acoustic glass and one or two other things).

 

Hopefully with mine being a petrol it won't fill up the servo with oil :)

 

The Android screen conversions look interesting but probably more than I have the time for at present - I like the standard one more than I expected.

It has quite a few advantages:-

 

Navigation with Waze which is essential in London traffic.

Internet radio so I can listen to any channel, anywhere, even when gangster rap is being transmitted on Radio 4 frequency in Wembley.

Spotify when I get bored of my music collection.

 

The only downside is that the screen isn't really bright enough in the summer.  On the jag forum we are trying to engineer a bright LCD so that will get fixed.
