LP Energy’s System Offered for Diesel or Spark-Ignition Gasoline Engines

Washington State’s LP Energy Systems is promoting a “Dual Fuel System” that injects propane vapor into the air intake of either diesel or gasoline-fueled (spark ignition) engines, saving money and reducing emissions.

La Conner, Wash.-based LP Energy Systems is claiming payback in as little as six months for its propane-diesel/propane-gasoline dual fuel modifications.

“It does not need to tie into the engine computer,” says LP Energy president Bill Farrell. “We do not tap into the fuel rail,” he told F&F.

LP installs a sensor and boost pressure control for diesel engines, he says, and a vacuum sensor and control for gasoline engines.

“In a typical fleet application the system can result in fuel savings of several thousand dollars per year in fuel costs and as a result the fleet can achieve an ROI on the system is as little as 6 months,” Farrell says in a release.

Lower NOx Emissions Too

“This is not a conversion” he explains – so neither approval nor certification from the U.S. EPA appears to be needed.

In addition to fuel savings, tests have shown significant improvement in NOX emissions, he says.
