A regular conversion delivers the propane vapor to the engine via a mixer that mounts before the intake. This system is called gaseous propane carburetion. When the propane is activated, the gasoline injectors are shut off and the propane enters the engine very much like a carburetor would deliver gasoline. This is the primary system that has been used in North America for decades. Its main benefits are its relatively low cost, simplicity of design and adaptability to all vehicle types.
The main drawbacks of this system are its susceptibility to backfires if not properly maintained and its lack of horsepower (about a 10% drop).
The sequential propane injected system is a major leap forward in technology. As the name implies, it uses electronic fuel injection to deliver the fuel to the engine. The main benefits of utilizing a far more advanced injection system are: the elimination of all backfires, an increase in fuel economy and engine performance equal to gasoline. The computer-controlled system closely monitors your vehicles sensors to optimize power, fuel economy and emissions. The drawbacks of this system are increased cost and greater installation time.
Your vehicle should be maintained by a licensed propane facility. This will ensure years of safe and trouble-free operation of your environmentally friendly propane powered vehicle!
