What kind of problems are you talking about with earlier diesels. I have a Propane gen set Cummins engine full propane as a back up power source. Many wharehouse lift trucks run LNG or Propane small diesel engines w/o diesel.
Diesel has 147,000 BTU's
Propane has 1200 BTUs /cube ft. 2900 /gal
Diesel looks to have more energy /heat than propane gas/ liquid. If EGTs are rising what is causing the rise better burn of diesel or just people putting their foot in it too far.
Not disputing your claim just want more infor on your expirence with this. The I don't like it or other have had problems leaves a lot to discuss. It looks like some folks are having great sucess with this type of setup and some are not. I would like ot know what goes "wrong" with those who have not had favorable expirences. So far two have posted I would like your thoughts on the subject.
I would think as a catalyst to promote a cleaner and more complete burn if controlled right it would be a huge benifit. But if one is of the school of thougth where "a little it good, a lot is better excess is just about right" I could see major problems arising.
With alternate fuels power density is the issue the lower the cooler the burn the hight the more volital and hotter the burn from my understanding.
