Starting problems

Any thoughts on this issue, car runs fine just started taking five-plus attempts to start, once started will run all day stopping and starting fine, has a new battery, battery connections are tight no loose connections I can see, one squirt of "easy start" and it fires the first time?

Have you been running a long time pretty much all LPG? If so could be glazing on the injector(S)

Simple fix with injector cleaner added to petrol thanks for the advice.

No problem. Occasional blast or long run on petrol only every now and then helps :-)

I’m considering a petrol auto but if I do, it’ll be converted to LPG before it gets put to work
