The BA Falcon?s new dedicated LPG engine is more powerful, more refined and more efficient than its predecessor.

The new engine, dubbed E-Gas, pumps out 156kW of power at 4750rpm and 372Nm of torque at 3000rpm.

"The E-Gas engine is further proof of Ford's commitment to protecting Australia's environmental quality, while still offering ample reserves of power that our customer demands from a family car.

"While other companies are talking about fuel savings, Ford Australia continues to produce the products that provide real cost benefits for consumers and protect our precious environment," Polites said.

"The E-Gas engine joins the Barra range of high technology six cylinder engines that have been certified to meet the stringent Euro II emission tests."

Ford?s dedicated LPG engine, introduced in 2000, has been extremely successful, helping to win major fleet orders from operators looking to save costs and reduce greenhouse gases.

The new E-Gas engine picks up all of the benefits of the new BA petrol engine, with double overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, dual variable camshaft timing and coil-on-plug ignition.

The new petrol engine has provided a strong base for the development of the E-Gas option.

The VCT system in particular has allowed engineers to take advantage of the higher octane rating of LPG and increase the E-Gas engine?s compression ratio to 10.7:1. The higher compression ratio helps to deliver more power and increased efficiency.

A new induction system has been developed to work with the advanced Electronic Throttle Control while a new balance hose and new ductwork and piping improve under-bonnet layout and reliability.

The dedicated LPG Falcon dispenses with all petrol system components including fuel tank and pipes, reducing complexity while saving weight and cost.

The instrument panel features a dedicated LPG fuel gauge as well as a distance to empty read-out calibrated to the LPG tanks.

Fuel tanks offer 93 litres capacity in sedan, 116 litres in wagon and 92 litres in Ute.

The fuel filler area has been redesigned for both dedicated LPG and petrol models by moving the filler nozzle to the centre of the insert and smoothing the edges for greater user-friendliness.

There are also revised spark plugs, a unique Powertrain Control Module, and a new LPG converter and mixer with LPG-only start capability.

The tank in the sedan has been redesigned to fit under the new rear body. In the wagon, the tanks again fill the spare wheel well.

As before, the LPG tank is fitted with a number of safety features such as a high-pressure relief valve and a high flow shut off valve.
