There are a wide variety of technologies available from around the world to convert vehicles from gasoline to propane. These technologies are designed to operate on today’s modern electronically controlled engines.
Various technologies are available including:
- Mono fuel liquid injection (vehicle starts and runs on propane liquid only)
- Mono fuel vapour injection (vehicle starts and runs on propane vapour only)
- Dual fuel liquid injection (vehicle starts on gasoline and automatically switches to propane liquid)
- Dual fuel vapour injection (vehicle starts on gasoline and automatically switches to propane vapour)
The selection of the appropriate system for a fleets needs depend on numerous factors including range, refueling location and vehicle operating conditions. A number of the systems are factory installed at the OEM level including Bluebird School buses, GM Medium duty trucks and Roush (Ford) pick-ups and vans.
The following is a partial listing of engine conversion technologies available
from around the world:
There are various emissions and safety regulations governing the installation of conversion systems on vehicles. Check with the authority having jurisdiction to ensure the technology and system is compliant with the appropriate regulations.
