“LPI Delivers Propane to the Intake Port as a Liquid” • Benefit: • Vaporization occurs at the intake port, cooling the air/fuel • charge and increasing air/fuel density providing power • better than the gasoline engine equivalent. • Vaporization creates a cooling effect reducing valve and • upper cylinder temperatures and prolonging engine life. • Providesexcellent cold weather start and go.
“LPI control is integrated into the OEM E38 Controller” • Benefit: • Proprietary programming optimizes fuel economy, • performance and low emissions. • OEM developed diagnostics remain intact with the • LPI system. • Allows use of GM Tech II tool for diagnostics.
“LPI utilizes bottom feed injector design” Benefit: - Provides a self cleaning and purging action. - Reduces contaminant build up. - Improves the service life of the injectors. - Maintains fuel economy, performance and low emissions. - Provides quiet operation.
LPI - 6.0L Target Design CriteriaVEHICLE CHARACTERISTICS • Vehicle Range: • Minimum of 300 miles, at 80% of maximum load • No Loss in Performance: • LPI Matches OEM Gasoline HP Rating & Torque Curve • Safety Compliance: • In Accordance with FMVSS, CMVSS & NFPA 58 • Warranty: • Equal to original GM gasoline engine warranty • Extended Warranty Package TBA
LPI Economics • 6.0L Light Duty Truck – Fuel Cost • 14,200 lbs. GVWR • 30,000 Miles per Year • Fuel at Fleet Price • - Diesel $2.80 • - Gasoline $2.60 • - LPI – Propane $1.70 • Est. Tax Credit - 0.50 • Net Price $1.20 • Annual Fuel Savings • LPI vs. Gasoline = $3,565 • LPI vs. Diesel = $1,987 • Fuel Savings Over 7 Years • LPI vs. Gasoline = $24,953 • LPI vs. Diesel = $13,908 .26 .21 .14 .58 Propane fuel price reflects the VETC Tax Credits Prices will vary based on local conditions
LPI Economics Soft Savings Because propane AutoGas is at a higher octane and cleaner burning fuel than gasoline… Fleet Operators experience: • Less-frequent Oil Changes • Increased Engine Life • Lowered associated vehicle downtime • Decreased engine component wear
Economics…Tax Credits • Energy Act of 2005, Sec. 1341 (e) (H.R. 6) • “New Qualified Alternative Fuel Motor Vehicle (QAFMV) Credit” • Effective 1/1/2006 through 12/31/2010 • - 50% of the MSRP difference between a conventional gasoline or • diesel powered vehicle and the “New Qualified Alternative Fuel • Motor Vehicle” • Plus: • - 30% of the MSRP difference between a conventional gasoline or • diesel powered vehicle and the “New Qualified Alternative Fuel • Motor Vehicle” if the vehicle has a certificate of conformity under • the Clean Air Act and meets or exceeds the most stringent standard • available for certification under the Clean Air Act for that make and • model year vehicle
Economics…Tax Credits • Highway Act, Sec. 1113 : • “Volumetric Excise Tax Credit for Alternative Fuels” • - Extension passed in House for 2010/Pending Senate approval • - Applicable to sellers of LPG • - $0.50 per gallon credit • Energy Act, Sec. 1342: • “Credit for Installation of Alternative Fuel Stations” • - Effective 12/31/2005 through 12/31/2010 • - Provides a tax credit of up to 50% of the value • - LPG fueling station, up to $50,000 • *Contact your Tax Specialist for specifics on application of this tax credit
LPI Safety • Fuel tank is made of ¼” thick carbon steel. • Tanks are 20 times more puncture • resistant than a gasoline or diesel tank. • Fuel flow is automatically shut-off in the • event of a fuel line rupture. • Critical valves are mounted below the tank • shell perimeter providing superior protection from damage.
LPI Safety • Propane has the most narrow flammability range of any fossil fuel. • Propane requires an ignition source of 940 degrees F to ignite. In contrast, • gasoline will ignite with an ignition source of only 430 to 500 degrees F. Blue Bird Crash Test • Angled side/rear impact • 4,000 lbs at 40 mph • 220 PSI Tank Pressure • Zero Leakage • No Pressure drop
