automotive gas systems
Gas injection controllers, injection rails and reducers are the most commonly used products when installing a gas system in a car.
The installation of an LPG gas system in a car does not interfere with the engine’s basic operation. Petrol is replaced with an alternative fuel, i.e. gas mixture. The gas fuel
is delivered in a vaporized form and fed into a combustion chamber (cylinder) as a mixture, through intake valves. The point where the mixture is delivered depends on the
engine type and it’s technological advancement.

3. Gas Injection Controllers – a modern, highly technologically advanced electronic design which is compatible with the most
demanding petrol controllers; controls gas injection on the basis of sequential or non-sequential petrol injection.
The most important advantages of the controllers are:
smooth and safe driving,
designated for cars with engines with 1 to 8 cylinders, including turbocharged engines,
compliant with the strict Euro 5 exhaust emission standards,
easy to install and calibrate,

the performance of vehicles equipped with STAG electronics is nearly the same as when they run on petrol.
AC S.A. offers the following controller models:
STAG-300 premium, STAG-300 plus, STAG-4, STAG-200, STAG-150, STAG-100,
STAG-50, STAG-XL, STAG-L plus.
4. Injection Rail
The purpose of the injection rail is to ensure precise dosage of LPG/CNG in the vaporized phase into the engine cylinders.
