Conversion to GNV
The Natural Gas that we use in our homes and businesses is also used as vehicle fuel, unlike the gas that we consume in our homes, it is compressed and conditioned according to technical standards to be stored in high-resistance cylinders and to be used in the vehicles.
Almost any internal combustion engine vehicle can be adapted to use a gas as fuel, specifically Compressed Natural Gas, instead of a liquid fuel such as gasoline.
Adaptation basically consists of incorporating:
- High pressure tanks to store natural gas.
- A special injection system for gasoline and gas.
- A slightly different electronic engine management system, to choose between gasoline or natural gas, either automatically, by temperature, or manually, at the driver's choice.
- A chip to control that the vehicle owner performs regulatory reviews.
- And in some cases other changes, such as reinforcement of the valve seat, or different segments of the pistons.
