Victorian diesel technology company, Green Diesel Corp will exhibit two unique petrol-to-diesel engine conversions, at this year’s Trucks in Action show.

The locally-developed Green Diesel Corp fuel injection system decreases the harmful particulate matter (PM) emitted by diesel engines enabling these engines to meet stringent Europe and USA 2007 – 2010 EPA Clean Air Legislation.

Developed by Geelong engineer/inventor, Ron Kukler over several years, the Green Diesel injector system can be easily 'retrofitted' to existing diesel engines with only minor alterations to the engine cylinder head and a suitable ECU required.

The company claims the injection system offers fuel savings of approximately 30 per cent over conventional diesel systems, while simultaneously delivering a 30 per cent improvement in engine power, and a much longer torque curve.

This also allows for significant reduction in greenhouse gases.
A two-stage hydraulic/electronic fuel delivery system creates extremely high injection pressures of 160,000 psi compared to 23,000 psi for traditional common rail injection systems.

Fuel injected at a higher pressure results in a much cleaner combustion process and a multitude of benefits evident in the much improved engine performance figures.

Additional benefits include the elimination of noisy 'diesel knock' reducing in-cabin noise, ease of manufacture and cost effectiveness with the Green Diesel Injection system only costing around three per cent of actual engine costs, compared to 12-25 per cent for most traditional fuel injection systems.

The system has also been successfully adapted for use in converting standard petrol engines to run on diesel fuel, a world-first technology that will be on display at Trucks in Action in the latest GM-Holden V6 Alloytec engine and in a Buick-derived Range Rover V8.

The modified powerplants offer easy cold starting while providing double the torque and mileage of the original petrol motors. Similar conversions have also been performed to petrol-powered Chevrolet engines, along with a selection of single cylinder stationary engines.
