Diesel Propane Injection

Propane Injection for More Power & Fuel Economy

Propane injection for diesels Diesel propane injection can offer a long term performance boost when you need it. When used in conservative quantities, DPI is a safe performance modification that will give you a fair boost in fuel economy & torque.

 

Otherwise Known As:

DPI, diesel propane injection

How It Works:

Propane acts as a fuel catalyst, allowing you to extract the most potential out of diesel fuel. During normal operation, a diesel engine burns approx. 75 - 80 percent of the fuel injected. By injecting propane in the engine, nearly 100 % of the diesel fuel is burned during the combustion process. Propane, being a fuel, also increases power by introducing itself into the engine. By improving the efficiency of the engine, huge fuel mileage gains are typically gained by the use of diesel propane injection.

Pros:

• Fair horsepower & torque output increase on demand.
• Noticable increases in fuel economy.
• Reasonably safe for use on stock vehicles.

Cons:

• Hassle of finding mounting location for bulky tank.
• Hassle of refilling tank periodically.

Possible Problems:

Can cause detonation under load in highly modified applications.

Est. Gains:

50 - 100 horsepower, depending on application.

Applications:

Power Stroke, Cummins, & Duramax

Additional Info:

Longer refill intervals in comparison to nitrous & water/methanol injection.
