LPG Conversion

LPG is a conventional energy source used for many proposes including the automotive industry by using a converter. A large percentage of LPG comes from field production but a noticeable contribution also comes from refining the 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

To understand the LPG Conversion Process we have to categorise it into two main areas,

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

LPG ConversionSince 2000, with the introduction of on-board diagnostics (OBD) every car should have multi-injection sequential (information provided by the petrol control unit (ECU) is utilized to control the LPG injectors) i.e. performance and drive-ability between LPG and petrol.

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.

This will help you get trouble free service in future.

LPG gauge and gas/petrol switch

The combined switch (Autogas and Petrol) and Gas tank level gauge is fitted neatly in to the dashboard. The Switching to LPG and gas is automatic, but if required allows you to over ride it yourself. 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 color coded filler to match your car body paint. The standard ones are matte black finish.
