Sounds to my like a few flushes and replumbing and itíll be good to go :y
Yea, Im trying to avoid putting the Vap before the Matrix if Im honest, could really do without feeding cooler coolant to the Heater at the moment.  :-\

The flip side is that you'll get more flow through the matrix because it's currently being divided into 2 paths.

I suspect that what has happened is that crud has dropped out of the flow and collected in both the matrix and the vapouriser because the flow through both devices is quite slow. Plumbing them in series would sort that for good, I reckon.

Just to add, filled up again this morning, another Brim, and all is good, sweet, LPG kicks in as it should now, even on a luke warm engine thats been stood for a while. will still be doing some planned flushing as still a lot of crap floating around plus I need to get some proper coolant in there. Haven't ruled out the re plumbing, but just too cold at the moment, may be another final reverse flush of the Matrix and Vap and we'll see.

So, end of the day a relatively cheap fix, some Soda Crystals and Dish Washer Tabs  ;) so the moral of the story, if there is one, is keep the coolant clean and up to date, especially if your not using LPG on a regular basis.

I cant help wondering what a LPG specialist would have done or charged for a fix, if any, anyway well pleased so far, and enjoying really cheap motoring, a be it a 6'2' driving around in a 1.2 Noddy Van.  ;D

Thanks all for your input and help.  :y
