The use of propane injected diesel or the precisely controlled injection of propane into the air intake chamber of a diesel engine is one of the most viable and promising new technology advancements in recent history. This technology will provide the customer with a safe, emissions reducing, cost effective fuel system alternative. It is also a highly performance enhancing system for on and off road diesel vehicles of nearly all type, model and year models. Basically, there are no limitations here.
Propane injection systems installed on diesel engines can be accurately controlled by the boost pressure of the engine and provides the appropriate amount of propane vapor into the pre-turbo air supply. This propane enriched air is then transported into the combustion chamber which causes the excited diesel fuel to be burned more completely. This is especially true while the diesel engine is under load. The resulting combustion process virtually eliminates any black smoke (unburned fuel) from the exhaust of some diesel engines. The resulting more efficient combustion process on each engine revolution provides better fuel economy and adds more miles to gallons of fuel consumed. Since a portion of the diesel fuel is being replaced with a much cleaner alternative fuel (Propane), carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons are reduced along with the nitric oxide and particulate matters. The ratio of this combined mixture is approximately 70% diesel to 30% propane.
