PROPANE/METHANE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

Propane is used to extend the range of a methane-fueled car in this project. A feedback loop system for mixture control allows the use of propane or methane or any proportion of the two gases. A refuelling system for propane was devised that allows a refill from a low pressure propane source or a high pressure methane source.
