    what is your setup? used parts? They say as propane parts wear, the internal passages simply wear out and let more fuel flow, thus they wear out. Tuning, all I've ever been told there is to tune with is the idle screws on your carb base, and using vacuum to your regulator.

    look on ebay, there are rebuild kits for regulators/vaporizers, and mixers on there pretty often. this is my guess, but I don't have my setup running yet, maybe someone else has better insight.
