Abstract

The way natural gas engine system works is slightly different than the engine system that used gasoline as it raw fuel material. Basically in the natural gas engine system, natural gas is compressed to 3000 psi and stored on board the vehicle in cylinders (Zulkifli et al., 1999). When natural gas powers the engine, it leaves the storage cylinders, passes through a master manual shut-off valve and travels through stainless steel lines to a high pressure fuel regulators located in the engine compartment. Then the natural gas will be injected at atmospheric pressure through a specially designed gas mixer where it is properly mixed with air. The air-fuel mixture then flows into the engine’s combustion chamber where it is ignited to create the power required to drive the vehicle. Special solenoid valves will prevent the gas from entering the engine when it is shut off.
