What is LPG conversation

You know conversation of LPG that before should know first the full meaning of LPG and what does LPG stands for and other related information.

Converting your car to LPG will save you money. 
LPG is typically at least 50 per cent cheaper than other fuels, allowing you to recover the cost of an LPG installation in a relatively short time.
Almost all vehicles use petrol and diesel as a fuel they all are converted to LPG operation at a reasonable cost.
Dual fuel LPG systems allow a vehicle to operate on either LPG or petrol and it can double a vehicles' range.

Some facts about the conversation of LPG :
  • Uses of LPG for running an engine is beneficial for cars.
  • LPG is a cleaner-burning fuel than petrol.
  • Engine oil and spark plug need changing less with use of LPG in cars, so service intervals can be increased.
  • The time required to install an LPG system is varied.
  • A typical family sedan car with a single boot-mounted tank should take only one to two days.
  • A large four-wheel drive with multiple tanks might have work for two to three days.
  • You should tell your insurance company of the vehicles for the conversation to LPG.
  • Note that any vehicle with a compliance plate dated after December 2003 that is converted to run on LPG must be fitted with a system that has passed current emissions test standards.

When you bring your vehicle in for an LPG conversion and installation there is little that needs to be changed in the way of the car’s current structure but the following will be added 
  • An LPG tank will be installed, either in the boot or under the car if there is enough clearance. 
  • A convertor will be installed to convert the liquid gas into vapour.
  • An air/fuel mixer or LPG injector will be installed to ensure the right mix of air and LPG is mixed to power the car.
  • A fuel lock will be fitted to stop fuel flow to the engine, once it is shut off.

Types of LPG Conversion Systems :

  • Converter-and-mixer systems are the oldest style, dating back decades and still widely used.
The liquid fuel is converted into vapour and then mixed with air before going into the intake manifold.
  • Vapour phase injection (VPI) systems use a converter-and-mixer system, but the gas exits the converter under pressure and is injected into the intake manifold. 
Electrically controlled injectors improve the metering of fuel to the engine, fuel economy and power, as well as reducing emissions.
This has been the most popular type system in recent years.
  • Liquid phase injection (LPI) systems inject liquid directly into the intake manifold, where it vaporises, not using a converter.
The fuel vaporising in the intake manifold cools and increases the density of the intake air, substantially increases power output, improves fuel economy and has lower emission, when compared to VPI systems.
  • Liquid phase direct injection (LPDI) are the most advanced systems, injecting liquid LPG directly into the combustion chamber.
The LPG instantly vaporises, cooling the combustion chamber fuel-air mixture during the compression stroke, with further performance and emission improvements.
