BGM Helm-Control for a single-engine boat.
This is what you’ve been dreaming about, a fuel system that lets you boat more often, by saving you money with an affordable fuel and greater fuel efficiency. We can add our natural gas fuel system to your current boat and engine at a marine service center near you, or get a new boat with our system already built-in from factory. Our system works on all major brands of engines. Suzuki, Yamaha, Mercury, Honda, Indmar etc.. The installation takes less than two days. The system pays for itself overtime through fuel savings and the amazing efficiency of running 130-octane natural gas fuel.
The BGM Hybrid system for Gasoline boats provides 3 modes of operation:
A boat operator can switch between the 3 modes of operation on-demand and at any speed. The engine can also start ignition on any of the 3 modes of operation.
Natural Gas Mode: This mode provides the maximum fuel efficiency and fuel cost savings and also it is the cleanest mode of operation, eliminating all smoke and exhaust odor. Running without exhaust smoke means no carbon deposits in your engine, keeping lubrication oil clean and extending the life of engines and reducing maintenance costs and repairs. Modules are added to the boat to allow for Natural Gas to be used and stored in the form of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas).
Hybrid Mix of Natural Gas/Gasoline: This mode provides the same exact acceleration as gasoline while primarily using Natural Gas and small quantities of Gasoline. This mode was made for maximum performance that matches gasoline performance, but at a much lower cost and while still providing great operational cleanliness to the engine. This also allows an operator to use both fuels at the same time.
Gasoline Mode: This mode is the original capability of the engine that is retained in its unaltered state. This allows the flexibility to temporarily operate the boat in areas where Natural Gas is not yet available or as a backup source of fuel that extends range when needed.
Compatibility: All 4-stroke engines, naturally aspirated air intake and turbo/supercharged, outboards and inboards. Yamaha, Mercury, Mercruiser, Suzuki, Honda, Crusader, and others.
Manufacturing Process: Our on-board Nat Gas systems are engine-model and engine-year specific, so when we make a hybrid system add-on, we build it on top of that model and perform computer controlled tuning and dynamometer testing on the same model and same year engine before sending the system to be installed on the customer’s engines, that’s how we guarantee 100% compatibility and power retention on natural gas.
