LPG, a by-product of normal hydrocarbon fuels with a mixture of propane and butane, has high combustion quality and is one of the purest forms of automobile fuel. It is perfectly environment-oriented and comparatively cheaper than other fuels.
In recent times, converting petrol engines to LPG in Bangladesh has become a new trend. People are doing this due to the efficiency of the LPG fuel and its cost-efficiency. Along with that LPG conversion price in Bangladesh has reduced dramatically in recent years.
The present world is witnessing a great trend to convert automobiles’ fuel system into LPG with the existing one. This tendency is going on because of providing varied benefits to daily automobile users including cost-efficiency, extra mileage, less fuel combustion, and less CO2 and NOx emission, highly responsible for air pollution, compared with other fuels.
Steps of converting vehicles into LPG

1. The under-bonnet installation
The under-bonnet installation is done through a complex procedure with high cautiousness and care following the LPG guidelines and best practices that vary from vehicle to vehicle. The installation process is also varied due to different engine configurations, engine bays, and physical spaces, for instance; placement of vaporizer and inlet manifolds. The conversion process is done in a dedicated way that doesn't leave any sign of conversion to the vehicle’s physiognomy.

These two fillers are also arranged in a color-coding opportunity where the standard fillers are provided in matt black. All of these steps are strictly done to comply with LPGA best practices and code practices.
4. Retro-fitment kits
Here is a list of the LPG conversion kits that simultaneously contain a dual fuel conversion system.
- A tank containing 30 to 100 ltr LPG.
- Multivales for checking and controlling tank filling
- LPG solenoid valve
- Gasoline solenoid valve
- Electronic control module
- A device to shut the fuel supply and the tank.
- LPG / Petrol switch
- Pressure regulator
- Mixer/gas injection
We hope by following the above steps you will be able to know how and in which process LPG conversion is going on.
