i honestly have no idea, when i did have it hooked up it was only on for very short periods of time, just because i had injection rate set so high that unless i was runnin 20 lbs of boost my truck would quit running, which i dont recommend at all by the way.

and another thing with it is if you have your propane set to high, and running for a good distance drivin like you stole the thing, a stock tranny WILL over heat rather quickly....

not tryin to scare anyone away from doing it, cause the power gain are actually alot better than i thought they would be but deff. take your time figuring out the PSI you need to be running, its all trial and error really

On my Bully dog kit the regulator regulates the amount of propane by the draw on the inlet fitting. So its off at idle.

I haven't been around this at all - very interesting. Looks like to me it would be better to buy a pre-made kit rather than make your own? Maybe not - i like the idea of makin my own - would love to know more about this setup!

Are you going out to do some tuning this weekend? Temps in mid 40s should be a good weekend.

propane helps burn the diesel more completely it mixes with the propane and makes a more efficient burn and hence more power, if your gonna add oxygen you might as well use nitrous would do the same thing
