Okey, I think the error come from to points. First, the engine as to warm-up for some time and need propane to do that. So it took aprx. 15 to 20 sec. at 80 psig. to warm up. Second, yes we found out a small leak at the safety fuel shut-off valve. Okey ... We are not gonna cut hairs in 4 because of ...
