Engine spools up fine, pump ramps up engine reaches rpm When I shut the propane off or touch the throttle the engine quits and GSU reads "LOW RPM"Battery volts are good ,pump voltage is fine, no air bubles in the line
I need the Jet Cat experts help on this one

Hey Ted! long time no see![8D]

...if this hapens on start up ...i would say low presure in the gas tank...maybe you could try warm your gas tank with your hand...

...if this is after start up....while gas is not nesecery anymore ...and you mean that you can shut down the engine by removing the gas...

do you use auto drain after start up??...maybe you luse presure..


did in the past the engine worked fine...anything you changed??

good luchk friend....George from Korinth[8D]

Are you letting the engine ramp up fully, until the green light on the data board is lit? Sound like you are not allowing the ECU to fully complete the start cycle.

You should post manufacturer-specific questions in the JetCat service forum....might get a quicker answer. Good luck!

Take a look in the Info menu and post what the last off pump drive voltage, and rpm are.

Is your fuel system ok?
Did you forget to unplug the vent line?

How much time on the engine?
Is this a new installation?
Has it ingested anything (FOD) lately?

Check your fuel for contamination. At the Mississippi jet rally a friend of mine kept having flame outs and it turned out to be water in his fuel (and lots of it).

Are you manually running the propane valve ??

Plug in the gsu and watch the screen during the start, it will tell you when the start is complete. I wouid check your tx settings to be sure they are correct, re-learn the ecu and watch the start sequence on the gsu.
