Did anyone else see the Gas Tek segment on the New Inventors last night 11 feb 09. It is a new diesel LPG injection system offering computer controlled gas injection for better economy and power.

Estimate was $5,000 for a 4WD version less the $2,000 government rebate so a cost of $3,000 for the unit.

Anyone have any thoughts about this ?

I know very little about diesel but this system sounded really good.
They seemed to have all the answers and there didn't appear to be a downside. Being a bolt on system which you could remove and install in your next car looked a bonus. If it does in fact accurately measure and deliver the exact amount of LPG needed every split second it seems to be ahead of the alternatives. They suggested that commercial vehicles ( trucks) would recoup the cost in 3 to 6 months and the avarage travelling motorist in two years.

The Sequent II system listed on their webpage has been used by a few installers now for the last couple of years. Its not new and there would be quite a few members on here that have the same system fitted.

I had not seen it before but I guess it must have been under development for some time now.

I would love to hear from people using the system as I really like the idea.

Grungle,

I thought the same thing. Similar to the Sequent version.
They didn't say enough to be able to see if there is anything really 'new'.

The (possibly updated?) fuel management program is probably what makes it as good as they claim. Although I think it's best use is in large commercial vehicle fleets, especially if what they say is true about making engines last longer through reducing carbon buildup in the oil.

The Sequent 11 System is fitted to Rods Counrty Camping Gears F250 and you can see Rod at the Kembla Grange 4x4 Show 27th Fed to 1st March and at Albury 4x4Show 6/7/8th March.

It was fitted by Jason Wilson of J&J Diesel Service in Failford NSW.

The system was designed by Watkins Watkins and Rumble of Dungog NSW and the Rumble family has bee 4x4 people for many years.

The system with its precision injection is suitable for all diesels not just large fleets .
