The relative lateness of development and use of LPG fuel has not produced the same depth of knowledge, particularly for automotive applications, as there is for diesel and petrol service. No major manufacturer has yet produced a specific automotive gas engine and there is little published data on operational details; consequently problems arise in converted engines, e.g. high oil consumption, build-up of deposits on the under-side of the inlet valves and inlet parts, combustion chamber deposits, oil thickening, corrosion of bearings and inlet valve and exhaust valve burning.
