Natural Gas Conversion!!!!!
Ok guys, I started a small company this summer, were currently working on a market for these natural gas conversion kits. As of now we are installing a kit on a 99 dodge 5.9 cummins. Father-in-laws truck, let him be the guinne pig! Anyways I'm going to do a small write up on the install and results. I've got a pending 05 f350 6.0 for a kit and also might put one on my 97 7.3.
I am located in Des Moines and we had our first natural gas pump put in this summer. The gas is at 1.99 per equivelant gallon, which is 5.66 lbs of natural gas I believe, the kit runs on 30% diesel the rest gas. It is supposed to provide 25% hp increase! the kit is self regulating flow by rpms.
The tank we have is about the size of a tool box in the bed, the regulator is mounted under the hood and simply plums into the air intake.
At this point we do not have mileage numbers, as I said I'm going to do a write up of the install on the cummins and post results later!! More to come!!!
