  33. 33. LPI Engine Systems<br />Vehicle Range: <br />Average minimum of 300 miles, at 80% of maximum load<br />No Loss in Performance:<br />LPI Matches OEM Gasoline HP Rating & Torque Curve<br />Safety Compliance: <br />In Accordance with FMVSS, CMVSS & NFPA 58<br />Warranty: <br />Equal to original GM gasoline engine warranty<br />Extended Warranty Package TBA<br />
  34. 34. LPI = Better Fleet Economics<br />Because propane AutoGas is at a higher octane and cleaner burning fuel than gasoline……..<br />Fleet Operators experience: <br />Less-frequent Oil Changes<br />Increased Engine Life<br />Lowered associated vehicle downtime<br />Decreased engine component wear<br />
