What are the options with Diesel/LPG?

Having spent a lot of time and effort researching and testing Diesel LPG conversion kits we have found out many interesting points.
There are definitely some systems that are better or more suited to some vehicles or applications. We have yet to find a system that would encompass all engines.

We are working very closely with some of the more serious systems and have developed routes of distribution for the UK and overseas.

The Diesel LPG dual-fuel approach is still in its early days. Information is changing constantly as are the systems as further developments occur.

Most of the theory is the same on the systems and is described below.

Diesel engines normally burn only about 75% (80% on a modern engine) of fuel. By adding gas to the combustion almost 100% of fuel will be burnt. Not only does this mean that less fuel creates the same power but also that the emissions produced are significantly reduced.

There are many safety features on the systems that have been developed over 30 years when LPG was first introduced to vehicles.

These include automatic shut off valves for loss of power and excessive flow and an accessible manual shut off valve in case of accident.

Most of the systems are produced to high specifications, meet regulations and can be fitted by a trained person.

The tank is fully secured with mounting brackets and the safety features include an automatic filling cut off facility. A level indicator is fitted into the dashboard that is also a manual switch for the system.

As well as the potential of massive fuel savings and power increases the systems also benefit the environment.

Engine response will be smoother and quicker when gas is added.
Servicing schedules can be extended due to reduced crankcase solids - reduced injector servicing - longer oil change intervals due to less contamination of the engine oil.
There will be improved drivability with no hesitation or flat spotting.

Depending on the system, if the unit runs out of LPG the engine simply continues to run on diesel as it did prior to conversion. Some of the systems create poor running on diesel thus enforcing the use of LPG.

Reductions of Oxides of Nitrogen and particulate emissions are the most outstanding with a significant reduction in Ozone forming gases and Carbon Monoxide.
