Re: overly large Hybrid?

Im in the process of checking all my electrical connections at the moment, coil switches cable etc, battery is new- tests fine, the only other thing I can think of is if the LPG(propane) isnt mixing right and sitting as a pocket. as for the gauges, they are not overly flash but they have worked well...
