Propane/Diesel systems

From : steveb toquerville zionvistas

Q: what can anyone tell me about the conversions available that add propane to diesel fuel in turbo engines i have a 06 dodge 2500 with cummins turbo. a friend of mine has a car lot. his dad is in the business of doing these conversions. of course he says mileage increases wear decreases and it will do everything but give you an orgasm. input info and experience appreciated. i googled propane/diesel conversions and there is a lot of positive information there. id just like to hear from the real users. steve -- ...the man who really counts in the world is the doer not the mere critic-the man who actually does the work even if roughly and imperfectly not the man who only talks or writes about how it ought to be done. theodore roosevelt 1891 .

snip propane injection is a common power-adder trick for diesel pulling tractors. basic chemistry says otherwise. gee maybe you should research the topic a bit no need apparently geeks are never wrong or at least wont admit they are wrong. just because something does not fit your preconcieved notions or misinterpretation of high school chemistry does not mean it will not work. your math is assuming that a traditional diesel engine is 100% efficient. they are not but injecting propane increases the engines ability to burn more of the fuel poured on the fire. michael .

steve the only reason this is done is for power. it has the same effect as increasing the rail pressure or changing the injector size except it maybe cheaper. the down side is the loss of storage space to carry the propane tank and the additional weight. it does not increase mileage or efficiency. although you will see more miles per diesel tankful you will be consuming the propane and one offsets the other so there is no net gain. steve what can anyone tell me about the conversions available that add propane to diesel fuel in turbo engines i have a 06 dodge 2500 with cummins turbo. a friend of mine has a car lot. his dad is in the business of doing these conversions. of course he says mileage increases wear decreases and it will do everything but give you an orgasm. input info and experience appreciated. i googled propane/diesel conversions and there is a lot of positive information there. id just like to hear from the real users. steve -- ...the man who really counts in the world is the doer not the mere critic-the man who actually does the work even if roughly and imperfectly not the man who only talks or writes about how it ought to be done. theodore roosevelt 1891 .
