Dual Fuel EcoDiesel

Diesel to Natural Gas Conversion

For 1-24 Liter Diesel Engines:

 

Diesel vehicles can be converted to a bi-fuel system using CNG!
The EcoDiesel System® easily makes a diesel to natural gas conversion possible. EcoDiesel System® is a supplemental alternative fuel injection system designed for 4 stroke diesel engines.
A precisely metered volume of a supplementary fuel such as propane or natural gas is introduced into the post-turbo air stream of a diesel engine. Proprietary fuel mapping and algorithms, in conjunction with two microprocessors, continually monitor engine load and various engine sensors to provide dynamic control of the alternate fuel.
The addition of the supplemental fuel charge alters the combustion process to increase engine efficiency. The final result is substantially reduced diesel fuel consumption with lower exhaust emissions without compromising power.
The advanced sensor monitoring by the EcoDiesel System® provides a safe operating environment for the engine. Additional system features include automatic shutdown should safe parameters be exceeded.

EcoDiesel Max: 25+ Liter Diesel Engines

 

EcoDiesel is adaptable to any diesel engine regardless of size.  From mining to marine, all industries can benefit from lower operating costs and emissions reductions associated with lower diesel consumption and improved engine efficiency and performance.

EcoDiesel Advantages

R
For turbo OR non-turbo applications. Can be installed pre OR post turbocharger. When installed post turbo, the EDS compensates for turbo boost up to 50PSI.
R
Basic fuel map can be set to maximize fuel economy, power, or the best combination of both. Self-calibrating fuel mapping feature. The extensive fuel mapping features allow the system to be programmed for higher levels of vapor injection at low loads to minimize overall operating costs. Our state-of-the-art fuel mapping system can to be custom tailored to prevent detonation at higher power levels.
R
Multi-step transition between fuel cell ranges produce a seamless cell-to-cell transition generating smoother power. VERY accurate fuel mapping is possible for special application power band requirements. Enhances engine brake performance when system is set accordingly (reduced brake wear). Fully cruise control and PTO (power take off) compatible.
R
Self calibrating TPS low/high value feature. Very easy to read “Dash Board” screen layout; VERY useful on a road test with the vehicle bouncing around! Live Data Record/Playback mode; a unique “flight recorder” feature allows multiple data acquisition points for later review/comparison.

How Does It Work?

t
1.  Once you fill your tank at the CNG (compressed natural gas) refueling station, your system will function fully.
2.  The on-board system reduces the gas pressure and stabilizes it before being injected into the engine.
3.  The CNG computer constantly controls the quantity of injected natural gas changing it according to different driving conditions.
4.  As a result, the combustion becomes complete; flame reaches all corners in the firing chamber and pushes on the pistons thus reducing engine oil pollution and giving you improved fuel efficiency.
5.  Our CNG system does not require any engine modification. The system is retrofit and the installation is completely reversible.
6. In case of any electronic failure or simply in case of empty CNG tank, our CNG system allows the driver to continue the journey using regular diesel fuel.

How & where do I fill up my vehicle?

Filling up your vehicle is just like filling up at a regular gas station except you’re filling with CNG (compressed natural gas).  To find a CNG filling station near you, visit the link below.
