Hi, I was just wondering if anyone would know if there is anywhere in adelaide does Diesel+LPG fuel system conversions? (as in both fuels). I have heard this can be done and was curious if anyone in adelaide does it. Any info would be awesome. Thanks

How would you run LPG in a diesel, Diesel ignites of compression/heat and LPG to the best of my knowledge dose not, and I am sure that there would be other issues also.

Am I wrong about this people if so correct me.

In Saturdays West Australian newspaper, in the motoring section there was a great writeup of running diesel in conjunction with a gas system. It was the first i had heard of it, but with promises of up to 20 % more power and significantly increased fuel ecocnomy its definatelty worthy of interest. The article mentions a place in the Perth which does the conversion starting at $3000 - $500 gov rebate. Am curious to know if anyone else knows more about it

Gday

Sorry my bad. Read the post incorrect, thought that he meant running just LPG or diesel separately and not as a combined fuel.

See that’s the problem with thinking.

I havn't been to that site, but have heard a bit about it. In order to run LPG, the fuel pump is tuned back by about 15%. Better power and economy are the result, but if you run out of LPG the vehicle is very sluggish because of the detuned fuel pump. Of course, if you run out of diesel it will not go at all.

The up side to this conversion is that the engine will burn every little bit of diesel because of the combustibility of the LPG. This helps with keeping the oil cleaner too.

Friend of mine does the conversions in Perth. They dont wind back the fuel pump, just introduce LPG which results in better burn so less diesel is required. If you run out of LPG it just runs like it used to prior to the conversion. They are getting great results but better with turbos than non turbos

Just so happens, last night at our 4WD club meeting we had a guest speaker who developed a gas/diesel kit for 4WD's based on the larger units for trucks.
The company name is 'LOVATO Diesel/Gas'
It is completely bolt on, and doesn't interfere with vehicles ECU or fuel pump. Neither ECU or fuel pump is adjusted. The gas is only effective above idle. The gas is admited to the induction system up stream of the turbo (if turbo'd) or just into the induction system. The gas is metered to provide 20% of combustible fuel per cylinder. The gas acts as a catalyst for the diesel. Without diesel being injected, the gas cannot ignite under compression only, so no diesel, no bang in the cylinder.
At the mix of 20% gas, 80% diesel, power and torque are up 20%. This can be fine tuned to suit the customers requirements by laptop as required.
The gas assists the diesel to burn more efficiently thus resulting in more bang for your buck.

Cheers,

Dion.
