  • flash lube or auto fluid

    hi there , i have heard that if you have a gas conversion and using a flash lube kit , that you can use auto trnmission fluid instead of the actual flashlube itself. has any one heard of this or is doing this ? cheers

    I've heard this also from a person I've known for about 12years who does LPG installs. Auto trans fluid is what he himself uses and 3 of his installers also said it's what they use. I'm told it's pretty much the same stuff except for the added colouring in trans fluid. But I've also read stories of other oils/fluids being used as well in different places. I myself am no expert and have no idea if this is good or not to be honest. I've not had a car on LPG long enough to see any good/bad results as yet.

      And that's the wank wank wank and more wank factor out of the way.

        Quite simple, Auto trans fluid is far cheaper at being only about a 5th of the price or there abouts.

            Many years ago I owned a Series 3 Landrover and I used to run it on unleaded fuel with Auto Trans Fluid in place of Falsh Lube, And I had no problems at all, But then again, The old Landy's motor was certainly not as technical as anything in a Pajero, Not sure how sensor's or fuel injectors would like it?
