Propane (autogas) is a cleaner, higher-octane fuel. That means fewer oil changes and longer engine life for your vehicles. The Stanford LP Gas Motor Fuel Division offers options for two types of engine conversion systems: diesel to propane and gasoline to propane.
With the Diesel Optimizing System (DOS), propane (autogas) is metered into the air intake stream based on the engine load. The horsepower and torque of a diesel engine can be improved by adding a metered amount of propane vapor to the air inlet charge.
In addition to the power increase, overall fuel economy can be improved. This is accomplished by monitoring turbo boost pressure (engine load) and metering vapor into the engine, which supports more complete burning of the diesel fuel.
We offer three types of gasoline-to-propane conversion systems: Prins, Technocarb and ICOM.
