Storm, i took a picture of my injectors, what sort of markings would identify the type of injectors they are?

Prins use a coloured dot to identify how much LPG they flow.
There are (in order of flow rate from least to most) Green, White, Blue, Orange, Yellow, and Brown.
I would think your setup would have Brown or at the least Yellow.

The body on my injectors is all black. I have no idea how to post pictures here. I read about how to do it in the FAQs page but i don't understand.

These out-of-the-box installed phpBB forums are fairly useless when it comes to image-uploading.
On my own forum I've a installed an extention that simply accepts all large images and rescales them to the proper sized for use on the forum.

In the mean time you could upload your picture to an image-hosting website like this one and copy the IMG-code back into your reply:

My hosting account does not have unlimited storage so I thought that, by allowing images up to a reasonable size, I could host member images without incurring a lot of cost. The other issue is that large files can be slow to load, especially for visitors with slow internet.

For those of you with Windows computers, Microsoft had a photo-resizing program that worked well.

BigBlockMopar: What is that extension you're using?

I've got the 'ReIMG Image Resizer' extension running, but I *thought* I had also another plugin/Mod doing the 'resize before posting'-work, but I believe the resizing has been build into the phpBB-software now as default (with ProSilver template).

Here are the pics Dan sent me to look at. I have scaled them down from nearly 4k to 600x800 using GIMP. I'm not sure these are Prins (Keihin) LPG Injectors, can anyone verify they are from these pictures. I'd like to see the other side of them.

The Injectors with the black body are the new Keihin KN9 which are now shipped with the Prins VSI 2.
The older style Keihin KN8 everyone is familiar with have a shiny metal body and a different ECE number.
82 is the flow rating

Thanks for the info Kuchen. Here are a few more updates for any of you who are curious about MPGs. This week-end i went up to Mt Tremblant for the first racing event there. No trailer or anything on saturday. On sunday i helped a friend move and i pulled a lightweight 20 foot trailer full of furniture 2 trips. Close to 600 KMs for both days and i averaged 23L/100kms. Monday and tuesday i was back at work hauling and averaged 30.5L/100 for 475km. Petrol is going up to 1.20$ / liter this weekend ( for no apparent reason ). I actually enjoy gassing up now.

What is a flow rating of 82? What does it correspond to with regards to HP rating?

The large ones (I think they are 100cc) used to be up to 45 HP per injector. Kuchen will know more.

EDIT: Here's a comparison chart between the old and new style
