Leaking liquid propane

Hello we're experiencing liquid propane leaking from the air filter housing when we turn off the ignition key off. Also getting a error code E38 on this fork truck. It's an Mitsubishi, Model # FBC30K
I'm leaning towards a regulator/vaporizer?

If you follow the propane hose from the tank to the forklift it will eventually tie into a 6" diameter round silver filter. The filter usually has a union fitting that connects it to the vaporizor. Those are the two items I'm referring to.

I'm not very familiar with the parts you're asking about in reference. I'm very green in the troubleshooting of LP vehicles. Sorry

Does it have an Impco system with the VFF30 lock/off filter. If so, I would replace both the lock off and the vaporizor.

You're correct, I copied the wrong information off the list of forklifts. It is an FGC25N model lift.
So you don't think it's a regulator/vaporizer with the liquid pouring out through the air filter?

It is most likely a model FGC30K. An FBC is an electric truck.
It sounds like you need a new LPG lockoff or solenoid.
