Introducing a simple and safe system to easily upgrade existing equipment and vehicles to run on propane LPG while maintaining usability and performance. The Green Kit will convert small engines, 1-45 hp, to run on propane and gas. For truck, car and machinery, gas or diesel upgrades contact us directly. These will also be dual-fuel systems.
Increased ethanol in gas reducing average energy content
Increasing use of ethanol in gas has reduced the energy content of gasoline by about 3% over the last two decades. This is because ethanol and other oxygenates have lower energy content than petroleum-based components. The Des Moines Register (Iowa) (tiered subscription model) (10/27)
The growing use of ethanol in the country's gasoline supply has reduced the average energy content of a gallon of gasoline by about 3 percent during the last two decades, the government said Monday.
The Energy Department's statistical arm said the drop in energy content per gallon comes as the use of ethanol and other oxygenates, which have lower energy content than petroleum-based gasoline components, have seen their share of total gasoline volumes increase from 2 percent in 1993 to nearly 10 percent in 2013.
The higher the ethanol content the less fuel efficient the gallon of gasoline. For example, even though E85 (fuel with 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline) is usually cheaper, a car using the fuel would see its mileage lowered by 29 percent compared to pure gasoline, according to the DOE.
What your congressman does not want you to know
“The corn-based ethanol requirement in the Renewable Fuel Standard
poses risks to consumers' small-engine equipment,” said Outdoor Power Equipment Institute President Kris Kiser at a National Journal forum. Kiser's statement followed Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., calling the corn-based ethanol requirement
a burden to consumers
East Coast gas lines represent yet another great reason to upgrade to bi-fuel propane gas.
Propane is the most readily available and viable alternative to gasoline. This means lower and more stable fuel costs than gas.
Small engines running on our propane conversion systems have been proven to have 80% cleaner emissions.
Increased engine life, no more gummed up carburetors.
Extended run time with extended fuel capacity.
Propane powered engines can be run on ozone action days when other engines can
- Easy to install upgrades
- Vehicles can benifit from our aftermarket Upgrade for your vehicle that feature a world class patented system to power your fleet.
