LPG Conversion

LPG is a conventional energy source which has many purposes. It lends its hand to the automotive industry as a ‘Green’ alternative to Petrol. A large percentage of LPG comes from field production but a noticeable contribution also comes from refining crude oil. The number of vehicles using LPG is growing rapidly. Recent estimates suggest there are more than 11 million vehicles using LPG worldwide, with more than 25% of those located in Europe. LPG conversion is a straight forward and cost effective way of altering a petrol vehicle to run on LPG. You cannot use LPG on a vehicle which does not come with an LPG converter; if your car does not have a converter then you need to find an LPG conversion specialist for your car to start using LPG as an alternative fuel.

LPG Conversion Process

There are two aspects to the LPG conversion process:

  • The front end installation (components mounted in the engine bay and switch mounted inside the car).
  • The rear end installation and piping (Tank, filler and feed pipe to the front)

LPG ConversionOn board diagnostic have been installed in all vehicles since around 2000 and therefore led to a multipoint sequential injection system being installed. We have the most advanced technology to convert these vehicles from Petrol to LPG.

It is recommended before going for LPG conversion of your car to discuss the options for locating the various components such as the switch and the filler, Tank location and Capacity with LPG conversion specialist.

During our consultation process, we will discuss the following points:

Front End Kit

The front end kit installation process varies greatly as this is dependent upon factors such as; the vehicle’s engine bay layout, engine size etc. At Ecotec Autogas our aim is to integrate the LPG system so it looks like it is part of the car like a factory fitted LPG conversion system.

LPG gauge and gas/petrol switch

The combined switch (Autogas and Petrol) and Gas tank level gauge is fitted neatly onto the dashboard. Switching to LPG and Gas is automatic however you can also manually override this should you wish to. An audible buzzer is also fitted to notify you of change in status of the LPG system.

The tank and filler- Mostly, the LPG Tank is placed in spare wheel area and is referred to as a “toroidal tank" and is used when driver do not want to compromise on the load space. However a "Cylindrical tank" (A larger capacity tank) can be mounted on the boot floor.

LPG Filler is usually mounted in the bodywork and where possible the same side as the petrol filler. You can also order a colour coded filler to match your car body paint. The standard ones are in a matte black finish.

It is essential to use a UKLPG Approved LPG Conversion specialist for Autogas conversions.
