I've got to know spannerboy recently - he keeps taking my cash, anyway! He did warn me off gassing any engine when I mentioned it for the EJ22. I think that maybe he's seen a few bad 'uns in the past and just doesn't trust the stuff. So I phoned Steve Shaw for a chat and he put me right on a few points. I'm now sold on the idea and going back to petrol 'n' gas after running diesels for the last 10 years.

I've dealt with spannerboy (simon) a number of times and cannot fault the chap.. He cetainly knows his onions, and the only LPG'd waterboxers I've had to work on have died on other things first! 'orrible engines!
