A local company has a trailer that staff tow to each job, this guy left the hydrolic park brake on, and wondered why everyone was flashing him on the freeway???? :shock:

Seen this already but still don't get how it's even possible. It's not on LPG if anyone is wondering.
I'm the director of VSH (Vlad's Spec Holden), because HSV were doing it ass about.

Petrol in the sump & back fire = KAAAFFUUUUCCCKKKIIINNGG BBOOOOOOOMMMMM :lol:

I'd did see a Holden V8 20+ years ago that had a similar issue but on a MUCH bigger scale, it was at a workshop for a dual fuel tune up, hadn't run on petrol for a long time, mechanic cleaned the tank out, got it to fire on fresh petrol and idle ok. Took it for a drive when it backfired and damaged the bonnet, the fuel pump diaphram was leaking into the sump, which over the course of the road test got to stoic ratio blowing rocker covers and sump off their mounts :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
