I would run petrol only for a week. If its all good only on petrol then that suggest a new vapouriser is needed.


The Likes of K seal are for a car/engine you just want a bit more life from before it goes to the big scrap pile in the sky

I had exactly the problem you are experienceing. Gas leak in the vapouriser blowing the water out of the cooling system. It happened after the vapouriser was serviced. I even watched the guys put the vapouriser back together again really tight - and it happened again.

The only sensible solution was to replace the whole vapouriser - and never had a problem again.

i've solved replacing the vaporizer with a RAM xenon 06HP supplied from a seller in finland. it's cheaper then refurbishing the Necam Mega and it fit V70.

I think the OP is on the LPG (Little P*nis Gas). RAM Xenon's are CNG. I'm going to cover Necam's regulators in my thread. Unfortunately most of my info is CNG biased.

Less alternatives as a result, and I ask 'Classic' to correct me, but I understand Necam have a lower output than is usual for regulators.

Ram do make LPG vapourisers.

I did test one when they first started doing them but there were lots of issues with them at the time.

I have replaced them with KME reducers before now, the Necam is only on fairly low pressure
