Thanks. It's working great !! Thats a really sweet valve I found, works really well and with the stainless guts it'll outlast others. There's a pic of the invoice in a past post of mine showing the valve, got it off EBay. Good luck with your install !!!

dave, thinking about building this setup, I've got everything lying around except the solenoid's and the adapter to get my Regulator to the LP tank. Question, what PSI are you feeding your engine? I am thinking about running 2 solenoids, One on the tank side, and one in the engine bay. The arming switch will power both solenoids, but the Solenoid close to the engine will be activated by a 2-4 psi Hobbs switch that way there is only 2-3 feet of hose to fill when the solenoid opens, and once armed it will only kick on when i hit 2-4 PSI (have to decide where ill set it)

I'm only feeding ! 1 to 1 1/2 psi cause I want the mileage improvement, but even at that it's still a nice little power boost. Some guys talked about 5 psi for power but then complained that they ran through propane too fast (go figure !!). I don't really see the need for two valves, but if thats what you want it'll just add a little more cost to the project. It will hold some gas under your hood too even when not used if thats a concern? I think it's pretty much instant with the one valve, your pick. Good luck Ryan !!
