What is LPG?

LPG is an environmentally friendly fuel with its low CO ₂emissions feature and it consists of oil and natural gas. The meaning of word is liquefied petroleum gas. It is colorless and odorless, but it has odorization at refineries so that it can be noticed instantly from the smell during leaking. In our country, its compositions are usually of 70% butane and 30% propane. This mixing ratio may vary according to season or where LPG gas station is received. It is a flammable gas heavier than air. 1litre of liquid LPG, under normal circumstances, reaches 250litre gas volume in the open air. It can only be stored as a liquid under pressure..

Does LPG cause odor in the car?

A car with LPG does not definitely release the smell of LPG in the vehicle. For this, there must be a leak in the system. If you feel like a smell in your car, we recommend you an authorized service technician to take control of a gas leak without wasting time. .

Does a vehicle with LPG montage also consume fuel?

A vehicle with sequential system can consume fuel according to the settings after the conversion is made, the vehicle characteristics, and the specifications of LPG conversion system installed. Each vehicle that has LPG sequential system transformation first run with petrol until the car warms up within the period determined by the settings and then automatically switches to LPG. Carburetor vehicles use LPG fuel in the first run-time. We recommend running on gasoline 20 miles a week especially on cars with carburetor so that fuel systems will not dry out and remain running. In addition, at least ¼ percent petrol should be continuously kept in petrol tanks of all LPG converted vehicles for the same reason.

Does LPG explode? How safe is it?

An explosion possibility of a vehicle with LPG is lower than the explosion probability of a vehicle with gasoline. In other words, LPG vehicle does not explode. In Cangas conversion systems, the following measures have been taken for this:

The LPG tank is a pressure vessel tested at the production stage to measure resistance during an impact and is only sold when it is sure that adequate security is provided. The matter that should be noted related to tanks:the life of the tanks is as of 10 years from the date of production. After this time a new tank installation must be made in an authorized service.

To assure the safety of the tank, Cangas conversion systems are offered for sale including the tank.There is a solenoid gas valve on the LPG system. This valve is located on the gas way between regulator (evaporator) and the tank. The valve shuts off gas flow automatically in case of an accident or voluntary suspension of the vehicle.

Pressure discharge valve in Cangas floats safely reduces system pressure by discharging gas when the pressure increased and prevent explosion. System provides the prevention of explosion resulting from instant high pressure during impact moments.
Another gas valve on the float allows disruption of gas flow when the engine is stopped.
Soluble lead stopper on the float provides fire safety.
Floats only permit gas filling into the tanks up to 80% of the volume. After this amount it automatically cut filling. Thus, the space is created to tolerate temperature difference and pressure changes that may occur in the tank.
