Propane for Bi-fuel Power

Get the most from your diesel engine with a propane bi-fuel system

Substituting diesel fuel with low cost, low emission propane enables engines to run on a diesel/propane mix that substantially reduces your operating costs and maintenance requirements. Bi-fuel engines operate at a lower temperature and require less fuel per load, resulting in less maintenance and longer engine life. Engines converted to bi-fuel with propane replace up to 40% of diesel fuel requirements without engine interruption.

How it works

Superior Propane partners with leading technology partners to deliver retrofit solutions for diesel equipment that achieve maximum fuel savings and engine performance. Retrofit kits are customizable, quickly installed, and designed to automatically substitute diesel with propane for optimal performance without any wear and tear to the engine.
