LP Gas fuel systems for vehicle engines

This Standard specifies requirements for liquefied petroleum gas (LP Gas) fuel systems for engines mounted on motor vehicles, either for the propulsion of the vehicles or for driving some auxiliary function, for example a mixer or a pump. It provides requirements for the design and construction of component parts and for their installation in vehicles, and for tests, commissioning and periodic inspection.
