I've been grateful to not have to post here until now but, the B250 is being stubborn.

The van doesn't like to start after running and parking, time in between sitting times varies. It cranks but won't catch, except the other day as I pumped the gas. I use to have this issue with the propane converter freezing up due to a cooling issue but, it's been ok after doing frost plugs and ensuring the coolant level is good for several months now, no more freezing so I don't think that's the issue.

Changed plugs, pcv valve is good. Pretty sure piston rings are either pooched or nearly are..I'm going to start just adding oil to the air filter housing soon to save time.

The start and then no start after running is baffling...thoughts?

Posts look pretty good. I'll take a more thorough look today at any sort of wiring, the starter does need replacing. It was acting ok yesterday but didn't drive it, not a good day to be stranded. Going to swap the battery today, see if that makes a difference.
