Many drivers wonder whether running on gas causes valve seats to burn out. There can be many causes of valve damage in gas-fueled vehicles, and such malfunctions should not be linked to a functioning LPG system.
LPG engine fuel, i.e. a mixture of propane and butane, still stands out for its lower price compared to other fuels, and cars with LPG installation run efficiently, so interest in cars with LPG is not waning. For the proper operation of an engine, powered by LPG, the condition of the engine valves and valve seats is important, which should be given proper protection.
What effect does LPG fuel have on the condition of engine valves in a car?
The condition of engine valves is affected by factors related to their installation, as well as the operation of the vehicle. Valve damage occurs primarily when valve clearances are poorly adjusted. Regular servicing of the vehicle can eliminate this problem. Installing gas in a car can affect the engine valves. The gas-air mixture takes longer to burn than gasoline, so it is advisable to check its composition regularly to prevent overheating of the valve seats.
How to prolong the life of LPG engine valves?
In order to prolong the service life of LPG-powered engine valves, special LPG additives or other remedies, such as gasoline injection, are used. A properly installed LPG system from a proven automotive LPG manufacturer, which undergoes regular maintenance, poses no threat to the engine’s valve seats. If you decide to install gas in your car, use the services of a professional workshop that specializes in installing LPG in your car.
