WRITTEN IN THE STARS
QI’VEheard that if you buy a Ford through to the current FG, with LPG factory-fitted, the electronic stability control does not work, hence the four-star rating on LPG mentioned on the Ford advertisement. I believe Ford still uses the gas carbie where Holden uses the modern gas injection system. Do you know if Ford will be updating its old technology and is this a fact?

ATHEfive-star crash rating applies only to Ford FG sedans with petrol engines, it does not apply to the utes or the E-Gas models. This is because none of these have electronic stability control. The utes will get ESP within the next month or two and Ford has told us the E-Gas cars will get electronic stability control in 2009. What Ford did not say was that the E-Gas system will be updated to the new injection system, but it is fair to make the suggestion that it will be, as that is the system needed for the electronic stability control to work.
