    • Or connect to vehicle fuel gauge through toggle switch
  • Basic Components Package. To make an underhood conversion kit, you must add BCP-EE Components kit.

System Operation

  • Vehicle runs on gasoline exactly the same as with unmodified vehicle
  • To switch-over to LPG, the carburetor must first be emptied of gasoline. This requires you toggle the switch to OFF position where both fuels are shut off to the engine. This is best done while stopped in a safe location.
  • When engine begins to stumble from lack of gasoline in the fuel bowl, toggle the switch to the LPG position and push in the Boden cable. When the engine begins to idle smoothly, it is safe to begin driving while running on LPG.
  • It is best not to run out of either fuel but if you run out of LPG, you must stop the vehicle in a safe location, toggle back to the gasoline position, pull out the Boden cable and crank the engine (assuming you have a mechanical fuel pump) until the engine starts. If you have an electric fuel pump, you may instead let the pump run for a minute to refill the carburetor before restarting.
  • The Boden cable lifts the air valve to minimize flow restriction during gasoline operation.

Ignition Timing

  • For best fuel LPG economy, the engine's timing advance curve should be optimized for LPG. While not optimal for gasoline operation, you should only be running on gasoline long enough to keep the fuel from becoming stale.
  • Many vehicles do not have readily available timing re-curve kits any more. You may want to consider converting to a fully programmable dual map ignition system such those available from Autosport Labs.
