  1. Just to let you know that I am still alive. It vented off for a long time about 24 hours in the end to empty the cylinder. The tanks must run individually with a change over valve or something as the car ran on lpg once the tank stopped hissing. Getting it booked in this week for new tank or old tank removed and just run it on the rear tanks if it is sound. Will give the other a close inspection. Its not something I really put much thought into until this thread. I thought they would be mega thick tanks like dive cylinders. Wasn't picked up on MOT, only this that was mentioned was the integrity of the side steps as they were rusting.
  2. Will park it a long way from the campfire tonight then to be safe and let it vent off
  3. Oh pants mine has just let go have just filled up with hundred litres of gas hopefully the one tank will continue to drain and the other will stay full not sure if they have one way valves or why in them
  4. I agree mine is smoother with veg and sometimes feels more powerful as well. I only use svo from supermarket and max I run is 50:50 with diesel. So your not the only one
  5. Booked and Land Rover back in a useable state, I hope! See you Friday night!
  6. Look what has just pooped up on facebook now. Just what you were thinking of originally maybe?? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/402660150537259/ Jon
  7. Darthdicky and I will be going. Haven't been for a few years so can't wait!
  8. Whoever was looking for a marshal body, there is one on Facebook for £50
  9. Think I have tracked the problem down to a ignition lead arcing out. But could be more than 1 due to how badly it runs or possibly a coil pack on the way out. Shame it is so hard to reach the coil packs on a D2 just to swap some lead out. A job for the weekend I think Thanks Jon
  10. I am opening this to the board as more views in here hopefully. I have a discovery 2 with 4.0 V8 and lpg conversion. Up until now it has run a dream and no problems at all. However it failed to start the other week due to a failed starter motor. Recovery guys came out to my wife. Did the old hit the starter trick and sprayed some brake cleaner in the air intake to get it going as they said it was turning over slowly. On the drive back it all started to go wrong. With lack of power and misfiring and struggling to maintain speed. I dropped it at the garage on my way home as didn't have time to put a starter on it and needed them to do a few jobs for the MOT. 2.5 weeks later,. they still havent got round to it so I have given up and taken the vehicle back. They have: Changed the spark plugs - this improved things slightly Said they put diagnostics on it and nothing is showing up as faulty, they checked MAF etc. Fault is present whether on LPG or Petrol So where shall I start? Coil Packs? It has magnecor leads already on it When cold if you touch the throttle it tries to flood and really struggles. Any help appreciated, I hoped the garage would put it on diagnostics and know where to look but they are hopeless and have to much work on to give it anytime. Thanks Jon
  11. It’s a bit quiet in here. So come April my defender will be on the road and I want to get out and use it! So this summer who has somemust do events. only thing I had in the calendar for definite is Shires sevens sisters in June open to ideas of green laning or play days. Am based in north wales but will travel for a good event. interested in trying some navigation events too Only other event I have in the diary is co driving for the hounds of the Baskerville memorial in November. so share your ideas I’m all ears Thanks Jon
  12. Thanks for this. We had a great time, nice routes, all well signposted and all people met seemed friendly. All wide open lanes you could take a freelander over
  13. Yes it was on standard anti roll bar. It would have been better with the longer drop links. But to be fair it coped really well with diff lock and traction control and just climbed and lifted a wheel instead. Sadly it only lasted a few off road forays before I had to scrap it due to tin worm Jon
  14. Mine never touched on that tyre size and 2inch lift and standard offset
  15. I have a good condition pipe here you can have for £40, I brought it from a breaker as mine corroded through where the 2 pipes are welded together. it wasn’t too bad a job to swap over, a couple of clips were a pain to get the pliers onto but otherwise ok. let me know if you want it and I can get it package up Thanks
