LPG / CNG / Autogas Additives
What is LPG?
LPG is liquefied petroleum gas - a blanket term used to describe two natural gasses: propane and butane. LPG is used to fuel cars and burns in a similar way to petrol; it is quickly becoming a cheaper and more sustainable alternative to petrol and diesel because it emits less harmful gases. Compressed natural gas (CNG) is used in a similar way to LPG. These autogasses offer great financial and greener benefits but problems with LPG converted cars include a lack of lubrication (that you’d normally get from petrol) causing engine damage.
Problems with LPG converted cars
The combustion temperature of autogas is much higher than for petrol and diesel engines, with additional consequences. Gas has no cooling and lubricating properties, unlike diesel and petrol. As a result, the components in LPG and CNG gas engines, such as valves, valve seats, pistons, and cylinder walls are exposed to much harsher conditions than their diesel or petrol counterparts. The components wear out faster and the engine reaches the end of its service life sooner. This is where LPG/CNG/Autogas additives, like LPG valve saver fluid come in!
What is LPG valve saver fluid?
The JLM Lubricants Autogas / LPG / CNG product range has been designed by Autogas industry experts to protect and clean exhaust valve and valve seats on LPG/CNG vehicles. Our LPG valve saver fluid helps to lubricate valves to protect against valve wear. JLM Valve Saver Fluid and JLM Valve Saver Kits use the highest quality ingredients from the world’s leading manufacturers.
