LPG Tuning: What to Expect

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a commodity that can be found in most of the service stations. The best LPG tuning Shepparton residents avail can handle the LPG conversion kit that is available on various vehicles. This is because the use of LPG in vehicles minimizes the amount of pollutants released into the air that include nitrous oxides, carbon monoxide and reactive hydrocarbons. Thus, the rate and amount of emissions depend on the state of tuning and optimization of the engine for working on LPG fuel.

In most cases, the LPG kit consists of the motor fuel tank, which is an average pressure cylinder that has bulkhead fitting with hydrostatic relief valve and onboard liquefied gas storage. The liquefied gas storage holds 80% fixed the liquid level gauge. Also, it comprises of the pressure regulator, which is a pressure regulator cum two stage vaporizer. The LPG kit is a retrofit, which can be added to a vehicle at an LPG tuning Shepparton Company. The cost of LPG conversion is affordable, and the only requirement is to obtain a factory approved kit and hire the services of a respectable LPG tuning Shepparton has to handle the conversion.

LPG systems
The two LPG systems available in Australia are JTG liquid injection and vapor injection gas systems. The JTG is more effective because:
  • It does not need the installation of a separate ECU or shifting back to petrol at WOT.
  •  It administers the LPG in liquid form into the inlet manifold.
  • The benefit of using JTG liquid injection system is that it gives efficient combustion that produces more power that results in low fuel use. The liquid LPG vaporizes when it enters the inlet manifold where the impact cools the incoming air and generates a more heavy charge on fuel and air getting into the combustion section.

 

How is the engine performance?

 

The Higher compression ratio combined with high octane rating generates a higher engine performance and is compatible with turbo engines that run on high boost levels. When comparing petrol to LPG vehicles that have travelled for more than twenty-five thousand miles a year, the engine destruction is minimal. Also, engine failures and oil change essentials of LPG vehicles are less than in petrol equivalents. It is worth to note if an engine operates with LPG as a single fuel, there is a need to review the ignition timing to give more ignition push on as compared to petrol engine at low speed. In a dual fuel conversion, the situation is difficult because the ignition timing required for optimum performance on petrol engine is more advanced at high speed where LPG is employed.

Engine management

 

The LPG conversion is based on a patented ‘turbulence plate’ technology that minimizes the compression ratio of an engine and improves the combustion elements of air and LPG mixture that infiltrate the cylinder. As a result, a cylinder head is adjusted to accept LPG induction system as well as spark plugs with an enhanced cooling operation. Therefore, an LPG electronic engine management system manages fuel induction and engine timing for maximum efficiency.
