    Eek Nutron Test #23123 :- report...

    Stand back from the computer for this one cos it's right up there with the best of my tests and there is a real danger you may fall over laughing! I don't want to be sued if you hit you head on the monitor

    I took the car upto Red Dot and ran it today for my latest test, an LPG conversion! Now the LPG won't actually replace the diesel, it will be used aswell but I will use less diesel and the LPG costs less than half as much.

    So benifits of this are :

    1) save money!

    2) cleaner running

    3) more power!

    The test didn't actually use LPG and the LPG would be more effective because it would be put in after the mass air flow sensor (MAFS). I actually used a Butane/Propane mix and just sprayed it straight into the MAFS. The LPG would go in just after and the temp drop would not be measured by the MAFS so it should push in more air to burn.

    The graph here shows two runs, the first being how I run around normally, with the remap and water/methanol injection. This runs nice and clean and is smooth aswell as powerfull. The second run (the higher) is with the Butane as well as the above and as you can see, it did not raise the peak torque at all. This is good for the gear box and transmission as 280lbft at the road wheel is about 330lbft at the fly. The benifit is clear though, it humped earlier and held the torque much longer through out the range, just falling under 200bhp at 5000rpm! This also runs clean though not smokey as with the box.

    So I will be ordering an LPG kit for about £450 tomorrow and fitting it asap. Hopefully, with it fitted correctly, it will save me some fuel and increase my bhp to 230 without smoking heavily and while keeping torque to a reasonable level.

    Nice one.

    Which kit are you getting?, and let us know (as if I need to ask) how you get on.

    What are you going to use as the gas tank?, a cylinder in the boot or a wheel well tank?.

    I've though long and hard and will probably go with a conventional tank in the boot rather than doughnut. Reason being that refilling would be a problem for a doughnut because my boot is often full. I'll be looking for about 30 litres, so I don't run out quickly

    Are the LPG kits easy to fit, or should it be done by a specialist?

    So it's going to work then Damn, that's incredible - I have made enquiries before and I can't find anyone who will do this conversion for a diesel.

    Karl, I admit what you get up to is way beyond me, but I admire your never-say-die attitude, boldly going where mere mortals daren't.......
