Default LPG tank not filling up, high MPG and looking 4 new tank pls

Hi All,

I have a Volvo S80 - Bi-Fuel 2003 model. I had this car off the road and at times I would drive only on petrol as the LPG system was smelling of gas at times. So I stopped using the LPG.

I later replaced the whole the front end LPG kit with Ecotech which runs smoothly except when I fill gas, I can only get about 15 - 20 litres of gas when I should get at least 45 litres plus and the consumption in the LPG is very high at nearly 11-12 MPG. This is too high when compared to when I am using petrol.

So I ask if anyone has had this problem and how did they resolve the LPG Tank and consumption and does anyone know the actual dimensions/size of the LPG Tanks stored underneath and if one knows the name of the supplier that supplied the original tanks to Volvo when these cars came out.

I just realised that I have asked so many questions..Sorry and most obliged to all the real guys of this Forum. Stay well. Kindest regards.

The fuel consumption will be down to how your new Ecotech system is mapped. You will need to go back to the person who fitted the system for them to remap it.

I would recommend fitting new spark plugs unless they have been done very recently.

The filling problem is going to be down to the fill valve in the tank. It is possible to just replace the valve

BTW are you sure the system is called Ecotech?
