Performance with LPG
LPG is a superior automotive fuel that provides a smooth-running engine with comparable performance to petrol with minimal to no loss in power or torque.
Dual-fuel LPG systems allow the vehicle to operate on either LPG or unleaded petrol. You can easilty switch from gas to petrol or vice-versa, which increases your vehicle's range significantly - perfect for regular commuting and long-distance family holidays.
Sprint Gas has a wide range of LPG fuel systems to suit almost all unleaded petrol-fuelled vehicles including large sedans, utes, vans, station wagons, and four-wheel drives. Subject to space limitations, many vehicles on the road can be converted to LPG.
We know that not all vehicles are the same, nor are motorists' driving styles or habits. We call upon a wealth of product knowledge and support otherwise unavailable through privately owned mechanics. Sprint Gas LPG systems are designed to fit your vehicle without losing too much space in your boot. The LPG tank is usually installed in the forward part of the boot, however it can go under the floor in vehicles with enough clearance, such as 4WDs.
New equipment will be added to your vehicle, but very little of the existing equipment is changed or moved. All LPG conversions include a dedicated gas fill point for refuelling.
Sprint Gas is at the forefront of developing alternative fuels for the future. Some of the fuel systems in constant development include:
- LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas)
- CNG (Compressed Natural Gas)
- Liquid LPG Injection
Rapid technological developments are transforming the LPG industry in Australia, allowing new models to challenge their petrol-powered equivalents for performance and fuel economy.
Recently, a number or new LPG systems have been developed that combine advanced electronic management with various fuel injection technologies. These developments have progressed quickly from single throttle body delivery system (venturi/mixer) through to multipoint port injection. These systems are generally referred to as third generation LPG systems. Advantages of third generation systems include quicker engine response, improved fuel efficiency, lower emissions and the elimination of damaging backfire.
The new Vapour Sequential Injection (commonly known as VSI or SVI) system has been developed in such a way that, with very few component changes, it can be used for both LPG and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) applications. The VSI System has the following advantages:
- Fully integrated master/slave management system
- EOBD compatible
- Comprehensive system diagnostics monitors vital signals and components
- Emissions optimisation strategy
- High quality components such as injectors, ECU and regulator
- No to minimal power and torque losses
A safer, fully-sealed tank
When re-fuelling with petrol or diesel, fuel vapours escape into the atmosphere that can be breathed in and also contribute to the hydocarbon emissions from your car. However, filling an LPG tank is a fully-sealed process and only a very small amount of LPG is released when disconnecting the re-fuelling nozzle, and thus making LPG refuelling safer and better for the environment.
