the analogy with the water tanks to the battery is nice but wouldnt the pressure in the water tank be a totally different concept due to the gravitational forces? or does gravity effect the electrons through conductors as well

Hi Bryan, quick question for you seen as you make amazing content and very knowledgable. when changing injectors for these model vehicles (535d f10) will the injectors need to be coded or is it plug and play, or will the adaptations need to be reset? Look forward to hearing from you

Something about the old temp sensor that PCM wasn't liking, sometimes a few millivolt deviation from acceptable sensor output range can cause the PCM to go haywire, they need to rewrite the PCM software to have a wider range for temp sensor output voltage, specially when the sensors age and go out of range. Excellent diagnostic video.

Nice job on the conversion, propane heating can be quite expensive we’ve got a diesel Cab heater it uses no diesel at all really cheap to run

I had all of the interior illumination upgrades in my new Civic hatchback, now I can understand why they took so long to install everything. They did nick my interior in 3 spots in the process though. At least you were careful!
