any one have experience, in where to buy a new ignition coil set.?

Someone posted at TV last year that a dual LPG/Petrol system needs a special set of coils. Normally, I'd go to Ford, to save titme. but they are quoting me 12,000 baht. ridiculous.

Only a clown would believe that ... o you are ...☺

Is that a new requirement ? LPG or CNG ?    I thought LPG tanks just had to be "inspected" every 5 years.

:smile: I live in this almost black hole. :sad:On quizzing MrsJ she tells me. Yes the certificate is for five years and after five years the tank has to be inspected by 'an engineer' who will issue a certificate for another five years. After ten years I don't know!! Probably scrapped like before......

 

Even after nearly 15 years of been married to her the only times that I got the full details straight away was when we lived in the UK... it's a Thai Thing   

 

These details are recorded somewhere withing the walls of your LTO.

 

Anyway MrsJ's new car arrives on Friday and the Lantis will, after twenty one years, be going to another home ... I hope.

We've had several LPG explosions in Thailand where people have died , they are trapped  and will die in the terrible flames.  So no thanks.

If they had been driving a normal petrol/gasoline vehicle they would still have been trapped with (maybe) the same chance of flames from the petrol....strange they never report that a vehicle fire did not involve LPG or CNG....is that because petrol tanks never catch on fire ,

or that LPG/CNG is more news worthy ?

I don't think that there is any welding involved by the fitter ... always thought that they used either screwed fittings or compression fittings. Of course I could be wrong and according to my wife frequently am.
