Hi my dual fuel v6 's alternator/battery light comes on now and again , the battery stays charged ( currerntly 12.6v )it seems to do it when i switch over to gas after about 30km , this may be just a fluke that it does it on gas , any ideas , cheers.

Whats the charging voltage output while the engine is running? Next time the light comes on, pull over and test the power at the battery. this will give you an indicator of whats happening. but sounds like a buggered regulator to me.
