Why invest in the installation of LPG?

  • Lower operating costs

    Installation of LPG / CNG is an investment that always pays for itself. Depending on the distances you must cover, refund will be made in a shorter or longer period of time.

  • Greater range

    To put it bluntly – for the same amount spent on refueling, we will go MUCH more kilometers. For more detailed calculations, please use the simulator Check coverage of the car

  • Environment protection

    LPG is currently regarded as the cleanest fossil fuel. Elimination of  harmful benzene exhaust, compounds of lead and sulphates,  is dedicated to care for the health and delaying climate change.

Car gas system components

IVth generation sequential gas installation it is the system of electronic components, electromechanical and mechanical, combined with electrical harness and gas lines. This complex system is managed by specialized computer – popularly known as the controller.

1
Tank

It may be mounted inside or outside the vehicle. In cars usually are mounted toroidal tanks in the spare wheel well. Cylindrical tanks are mounted in the cargo area.

2
Multivalve

Gas tank attachments, which include:

  • pressure valve – filling the tank is limited to 80%
  • gas valve out – protects against free outflow of gas and against increase of the pressure above 27 bars and tank temperature above 1200 ° C.
  • gas solenoid coil – after switching on the central, solenoid valve opens and supplies LPG to the installation.
  • gas level indicator – allows to determine the amount of fuel in the tank.
3
Gas main line

Thermoplastic or copper pipe that connects the tank with the solenoid.

4
The filling gas valve

It allowes filling the tank with gas. It is usually placed under the fueling flap, or in the rear bumper.

5
Solenoid valve

Opens or closes the flow of gas in the liquid state. It is mounted when the reducer does not have an integrated solenoid valve.

6
The liqiud phase gas filter

Integrated with the reducer or mounted separately – filters gas in the liquid state.

7
Reducer with integrated gas valve

Is responsible for the stability of gas pressure during engine operation.

8
The volatile phase gas filter

Filter mounted in front of the injectors, which uses centrifugal force expanded gas in gaseous state. Eliminates dirtiness and centrifuges oil fractions present in the gas.

9
Map sensor

Measures temperature and pressure directly in the gas stream.

10
Injectors

Mounted individually or combined in a set. Inject precise doses of gas to the intake manifold channels.

11
Controller

Brain of autogas installation – advanced computer, controlling the operation of all system components.

12
Central

It shows the current level of gas in the tank. It allows selecting the fuel on which to run the engine.

  • Perfect Optima kit

    Laboratory tests of OPTIMA controllers together with Shark reducer and Barracuda gas injectors supported by centrifugal filter ULTRA 360°, carried out on a wide range of vehicles, have shown that it is fully optimized kit of autogas installation, which reliably works on any model of a car.

  • Optima nano controller

    OPTIMA NANO is the most advanced computer unit controlling the sequential gas injection, in the ECU class with 24-pin link. It is designed for vehicles with a simple and extensive indirect fuel injection systems. Innovatory algorithm of OPTIMA NANO controller precisely adjusts the dose of gas to the operating conditions and engine load in the full range of his work, thus reducing gas consumption. Connection of a standard OBD interface gives installers the ability to collect OBD map correction, injection time map of turnover and manifold pressure and precise regulation of injection times, the rotations, manifold pressure, temperature and gas pressure.

     

  • Shark Reducer

    SHARK reducer is designed for LPG sequential injection systems. His task is to reduce the pressure and the evaporation of gas to the volatile phase and to maintain proper pressure in order to ensure optimal working conditions of the whole system. Excellent quality of  the SHARK reducer, is a guarantee of high efficiency and long-term, trouble-free operation. Unique and modern design ensures proper operation in harsh climatic conditions, which is reflected in the smooth operation of LPG in the user’s car. Reducer is equipped with a gas filter in the liquid phase and the solenoid valve with increased flow. As the first company in Poland we applied the valve with a diameter of 8 mm, this solution resulted that there are no restrictions on the movement of gas to the injection system. Special diaphragm design provides full performance and the lack of pressure drops in the full load range. Designing SHARK reducer, we remembered also about possibility of installation in two planes, which in many cases is easier for the assembler.

  • Barracuda injector

    • Construction of immersion (piston)
    • Vertical gas supply
    • Compact cover
    • Standard connection
    • Materials with high magnetic permeability and high saturation induction
    • Seals specially designed from mixtures of fluorine rubber.
    • Modern fluoro polymer sliding coatings with non-stick and anti-freeze function
    • Adjusting the flow through the calibration of nozzles.
    • Free configuration of the connection thanks to a dedicated adapter and power main line and separating main line.
  • Filter Ultra 360°

    Filter Ultra 360° has been designed specifically for comfort of the assembler. Inlet and outlet connectors are positioned on separate, individual elements of the filter housing, so you can freely adjust the angle between them. Thanks to this solution the assembler has complete freedom in the placement of the filter in the engine compartment.

  • For some petrol engines kit should be expanded with additional elements such as: interface OBD or  fuel pressure emulator. Indications for use of additional components can be found in our configurator.

  • Perfect Optima kit

    Laboratory tests of OPTIMA controllers together with Shark reducer and Barracuda gas injectors supported by centrifugal filter ULTRA 360°, carried out on a wide range of vehicles, have shown that it is fully optimized kit of autogas installation, which reliably works on any model of a car.

  • Controller Optima EXPERT

    OPTIMA EXPERT The newest gas injection system in the OPTIMA family controllers. Currently it is the most technically advanced, proffesional controller with built-in module OBD and fuel pressure sensor emulator. Emulator is fully programmable from the application to the tuning system Optima (from version 2.05). Advanced functions allow for autoadaptation and direct communication with OBD, what makes it one of the most distinctive controllers in 4-6-8 cylinder class. OPTIMA is the first Polish LPG system which meets the requirements of stringent Euro 6 emissions standards.
