Diesel-gas dualization in industrial vehicles
We offer solutions for OEMs (vehicle manufacturers, engine manufacturers, GNC/GNL/GLP system builders, energy system producers) as well as professional operators interested in retrofitting existing vehicles or engines (industrial and commercial vehicle fleets, public transport, waste collection, marine and industrial applications, power generation systems).
Dual diesel/gas transformation operating diagram
Fuel savings of up to 35% in dual-diesel.
The substitution of LPG in dual-diesel is approximately 30%, allowing for savings of over 20%. The substitution of GNC in dual-diesel is approximately 50%, allowing for savings of over 40%.
Save on fuel and maintenance:
The price of Autogas allows for short-term amortization of the equipment cost in your vehicle. Autogas is between 40% and 50% less expensive than traditional fuels in the case of LPG, and even more economical with GNC. Keep in mind that savings depend on the type of engine, its models, and the user’s driving habits.
In addition to fuel savings, we must add maintenance savings. Vehicles with Autogas produce less wear, resulting in fewer breakdowns, longer oil change periods, and longer engine life.
Fuel savings of up to 50% in dual-gasoline.
The substitution of LPG in gasoline is 100%, allowing for up to 50% fuel savings.

Our value is the variety of solutions:
With our association with the best component manufacturers, we have solutions for OEMs (vehicle manufacturers, engine manufacturers, GNC/GNL/GLP system builders, energy system producers) as well as professional operators interested in retrofitting existing vehicles or engines (industrial and commercial vehicle fleets, public transport, waste collection, marine and industrial applications, power generation systems) to specific solutions for the end customer.
Vehicles equipped with the BIOFUTUR TRUCK system show significant improvements in emissions of the main pollutants, the most important of which is particles (PM). Thanks to the high percentage of Natural Gas used in the d-gid system, CO2 emissions in the atmosphere are reduced (by 10% with GNC or GNL and by 50% with Biogas).
Using a mixture of air, natural gas, and a small percentage of diesel, significant economic savings are achieved thanks to the price difference between natural gas and diesel. It reduces operating costs by an average of 10-30%.
Environmental benefits of the company
Functional diagram of the Biofutur Truck system
1.- Electronic control unit
The electronic control unit is responsible for adjusting the amount of gas supplied to the engine by means of the signals it receives, keeping it always in the stoichiometric setting to optimize fuel consumption and performance.
The switch allows the DUALFUEL system to be turned on and off. It also includes a gas tank level indicator.
These devices are controlled by the BIOFUTUR electronic control unit and are responsible for injecting the appropriate amount of gas into each cylinder.
4.- Pressure regulator/reducer
The pressure regulator reduces the pressure of the stored gas to the working pressure of the system. It includes a solenoid valve that blocks the passage of gas when the engine is off or when the vehicle is running in 100% diesel mode.
Tanks vary depending on the installed gas:
GNC tank: contains liquid methane (at -162 degrees C and ambient pressure)
Hydrogen tank: contains pure hydrogen (at -253 degrees C and 700 bars)
6.- Tank valve
This is a manually operated shut-off valve that isolates the tank from the system. It allows maintenance operations to be carried out on the system.
7.- Gas filling port
A filling port for filling the gas tanks. It includes a valve that blocks the passage of gas when the engine is off or when the vehicle is running in 100% diesel mode.
8.- Pressure and temperature sensor
This sensor reports to the BIOFUTUR control unit the instantaneous values of pressure and temperature of the methane.
9.- Fuse position: Near the battery.
