basically the gas level is not correct, the message says weak gas (not enough) but you could also get the same message if you have too much gas.

Always start with little gas and keep increasing it until you get reliable starts. Weak gas can also come up if the gas is cold.

The problem is solved by removing extension for the battery, connector to the extension were not sold properly battery was dropping voltage from 8.4 to 7.0 at the start sequence. Now when I give power when the data terminal says running, Rpm increase as i go above forty percent or increase throttle fast it tries to catch fire, Glow plug voltage are 6.4- Pump pw ignite-025....pump limit 625. do i have to change any parameter in Run menu.
