The use of gases such as LPG or CNG is a growing phenomenon in more and more countries. LPG is cheaper than petrol or diesel and emits a minimal amount of harmful nitrogen. However, the combustion temperature of gas 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 gas engines, such as valves, valve seats, pistons, and cylinder walls are exposed to much harsher conditions than their diesel or petrol counterparts. As a result, the components wear out faster and the engine reaches the end of its service life sooner.
JLM has an extensive range of products to prevent this accelerated wear on gas-powered combustion engines. For example, JLM Valve Saver Fluid lubricates, cools, and cleans the engine components, considerably extending its service life. JLM has nearly half a century of experience with automotive gas products whose efficacy has been tested and confirmed by laboratory tests from official testing institutes.
