    General T5 Chat
    I bought a VW T5 LWB camper earlier this year and last night I decided to sleep in it to test all the systems out. It is fitted with a CBE CO gas detector and a CBE LPG detector. At about 03:30am I was awoken by an audible alarm. Upon investigation I found that the LPG detector light was now...
  5. 2001 2.5L Caravelle LPG conversion

    Engine & Gearbox
    Recently acquired and finding my way around. Getting lambda sensor bank 1 sensor 2 errors. Not surprising as looking underneath there is no catalyst or sensor, just 4 way socket hanging near first bend in exhaust. Everything seems to be running OK and LPG probably doesn't need catalyst, but what...

  12. 2.0l AAC Petrol - ISV Question

    Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, Sorry if this has been covered before, but I've not found many references in the archive. Is there a concensus of opinion as to whether or not to remove the Idle Stablisation Valve on the AAC engine? A lot of the Golf GTI boys seem to take it off and say it actually improves things. As an...

  18. LPG in UK - often or rare to find?

    Fuel
    I run my VR6 with LPG in Germany for over five years. Some people ask me if I know how the situation in the UK is: Are there many LPG-stations or is it necessary to switch do the expensive Benzin? On a German website with database there are 564 LPG stations listed for "Great Britain", but...
