Dual Fuel Engenious Engineering

Dual Fuel Conversions

Conversions of high horsepower diesel engines to dual fuel including natural gas, methanol, ethanol, diesel, ammonia, and hydrogen substitution.

Direct Injection

Direct Gas Injection

High pressure direct multi-point injection kits for optimum gas injection into combustion chamber for EMD engine conversions.

single point injection

Single-Point Injection

Air intake fumigated single-point injection kits for basic four-stroke engine conversions. 

100% Spark Ignited Engenious Engineering

100% Gas Spark Ignited Conversion

Spark ignited kit for EMD diesel engines achieves 100% diesel replacement.

Direct Injection Engenious Engineering

Multi-Port Injection

Port injection, multiple point injection kits for advanced four-stroke engine conversions. 

sustainability

Low Emission Idle (LEI) System

Bank Deactivation System designed to fit EMD and GE mechanically-injected engines to reduce smoke under low load conditions.

Global Warming Reduction

Natural gas is a great bridge solution with one of the highest hydrogen to carbon ratios when compared with other fuels. A diesel to natural gas conversion reduces carbon emissions, nitrogen oxide (NOx), and particulate carbon emissions. 

9

Clean Burning Conversion System Kits

Dependable, reliable, safe, and equipped with full-power capabilities.

9

100% Natural Gas Conversion

EPA engine certification to Tier 3 capability with no exhaust after-treatment or exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) required.

Benefits of Dual Fuel Conversions

Direct Benefits
  • Fuel cost savings
  • Significantly reduced emissions in dual fuel and 100% gas modes
  • Retrofit system—expands capability and adds value to your present investment
  • Lower maintenance costs & improved engine longevity due to cleaner burning fuel
  • Retains diesel-only mode backup
  • Fuel flexibility reduces costs when fuel prices are volatile
Indirect Benefits
  • Reduces national dependence on foreign oil
  • Environmentally responsible technology
  • Shifts major fuel cost to a more price stable fuel source
  • Flexibility in storing fuel (i.e. diesel lasts 6-12 months in storage, natural gas lasts 20+ years)
