👑 ALEX IDEA – Direct injection LPG system



How much gasoline does an LPG system for direct injection consume?

As for the real share of petrol in the ALEX IDEA controller, it’s about to 5-15% of petrol injection in relation to the amount of consumed gas. Competitive installations of this type require additional injection of nearly 20-30% of fuel. Let’s see the exact calculations from the route traveled by Kamil.
