1 INTRODUCTION
1.1 GENERAL CHARACTERISTCS
The ECO GAS device is an innovating system for the gas feeding in the automotive field
(both LPG and CNG) for explosion engines. The heart of the system is constituted by a
microprocessor able to run numerous functions optimizing times, adaptability and efficacy of
every intervention carried out by the electronic control unit.
During the recent homologation test of the ECO GAS, the results obtained perfectly
shown the high quality of the carburation control system. The experience achieved by BRC
Gas Equipments allowed to create a new product, complete of all the components necessary
for a good operation of the gas installation. The adaptability and the high technological level
of the programming system make the ECO GAS suitable to numerous functions for the
optimizing of the car operation and for the diagnosis and control of the system directly
carried out by the technician.
Moreover it is a warranty of a high potentiality for future development of the system itself.
In order to make easier the technician work, the product and its installation has been
uniformed to all the other BRC systems already commercialized.
1.2 GENERAL INSTALLATION PLAN
The ECO GAS device can be installed on every type of engines (originally feeded both
with carburettor and electronic injection) converted to gas with a traditional BRC
installation (both LPG and CNG).
The Electronic Control Unit, with microprocessor, controls the whole gas installation
and, through the STEP actuator, provides for the regulation in feedback of the fuel
quantity in order to obtain an optimized carburation under the point of view of pollution,
consumptions and drivibility independently from external conditions (temperature, etc...)
and fuel composition.
The handly computer has been projected to talk in real time with the electronic
control unit permitting a precise control of the installation operation and also an easy and
efficacious setting of its parameters.
The picture n. 1 shows the whole installation plan and puts in evidence the following
components:
- the ECO GAS electronic control unit
- the change-over switch with level indication
- the handly computer
- the STEP actuator for the gas flow control

This plan has the aim of giving a general idea of the whole system.
Something could change according to the type of car to convert so that it will be better to
refer to the specific connection plans.
1.3 DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE COMPONENTS

1.3.1 THE ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT AND ITS FUNCTIONS
The ECO GAS Ecu is the operating centre of the whole gas installation.
Through the harness, studied in order to achieve easily the different parts of the car where
the gas components are installed, thanks to idoneous inlet and outlet stages, sized in order to
not modify and/or damage the normal car operation with petrol, it is able to control the ECO
GAS during its operations:
- manual and automatic changeover function with software programmable conditions
- gas/petrol changeover and safety car functions (the gas flow is immediately arrested in
case of accidental stop of the engine, with double safety).
- selection by software of the petrol feeding type (carburettor or injection)
- selection by software of the gas feeding type (LPG or CNG) with different mappings of
operation
- gas flow control function and the possibility to correct in real time the mixture title
according to the information of the oxygen sensor and the analysis of the different car
conditions while driving (i.e. engine load).
- possibility of changing the different parameters in order to personalize the car
operation according to the different driving conditions.
- selection by software of the different type of used oxygen sensor
- oxygen sensor signal emulation function with the possibility of automatic acquisition
of the parameters directly during petrol operation.
- function of injectors cutting adaptable to the different types of injection and with the
-9 -

Gas
possibility of an easy connection to the external emulators.
- fuel superimposition function and possibility to modify the time by software.
- petrol ECU memories function able to directly cancel possible memorized operation
anomalies
- dialogue function with the handly computer (code 06LB00001103)
- level indication with four leds with reserve indication on the change-over switch (for
its operation the ECU has to be connected to one of the three available sensors - see
1.3.3.3)
- diagnosis of the system and of the correct car operation with warnings of the possible
errors on the change-over switch: the error is memorized by the ECO GAS ECU in the section
Historical errors which can be consulted with the handly computer.
- ECO GAS system check-up every time the dashboard is off.
- selection by software of the setting method of the different parameters and signals
necessary for a correct operation of the installation (automatic, semiautomatic and manual
setting)
1.3.2 THE HARNESS
The ECO GAS kit also contains an idoneous harness to be connected to the ECU by
using an automotive harness with 35 pins.
All the secondary wired-harnesses and connectors directly go to the main one: the cables
colours are the same ones used for the Lambda Gas systems.
Moreover the conductors are divided in different sheaths in order to semplify the
installation and improve the look.
1.3.3 THE CHANGE-OVER SWITCH
This is the interface between the EO GAS system and the user: through it the ECU gives
all the necessary instructions to the driver.
At the moment the ECO GAS change-over switch follows the same line of all the other
BRC components (even if it will be possible to add other functions).
Together with the change-over switch an adhesive label is supplied in case the change-over
switch is installed in vertical position (you have only to remove the already sticked one).
1.3.3.1 CHANGEOVER FUNCTIONS FOR INJECTION CARS
The change-over switch (picture 3) has three different positions in order to allow:
a) forced petrol position
-10 -
Eco
Gas
With the change-over switch button turned to the left, the writing BRC becomes red, the
injectors are operating, the gas solenoid valves are closed and the system for the gas flow
control is disconnected.
The car regularly runs with petrol as the gas installation does not exist.
b) gas/petrol automatic position
With the change-over switch button in the centre, the car begins to run with petrol then
automatically changes to gas. It is possible both the changeover during aceleration and
deceleration and the threshold for the changeover is adjustable by software (see Handly com-
puter users guide). While the engine operates with petrol, the writing BRC becomes red
and starts to blink, then becomes green when the engine operates with gas.
Obviously, during the gas operation, the injectors are disconnected, the external
injectors emulator runs, the gas solenoid valves are open, the gas flow control actuator is
actived together with other components, where installed. This is the recommended position
for a gas feeded car.
c) forced gas position
With the change-over switch button turned to the right, the writing BRC becomes green
and the engine only runs with gas. The system automatically changes to petrol in case the car
start is not successful or in case of accidental stopping. During the primer the writing BRC
becomes green and starts to blink.
This position has to be considered as an emergency solution to be used only in case of
problems with the petrol feeding system and paying attention the petrol tank is not empty,
avoiding the pumps runs without petrol. It is recommended to have a petrol quantity of 1/3 -
1/4 of the tank capacity and to renew it continuosly so that it can not alter.
1.3.3.2 CHANGEOVER FUNCTION FOR CARBURETTOR CARS
The change-over switch has three positions and allows to have four different functions:
a) gas operation

Eco
Gas
With the change-over switch button turned to the right, the writing BRC becomes green,
the gas solenoid valves are open while the petrol one is closed. When the primer is finished,
the writing BRC becomes green and starts to blink waiting for the engine starting.
During the gas operation the safety car function is always guaranteed (automatic
stopping of the gas solenoid valves in case of accidental stop of the engine or for unsuccessful
starting. The malfunction is shown on the led bar - see 1.3.3.4)
b) gas/petrol changeover
With the button in the centre for the changeover from gas to petrol, both the gas and
petrol solenoid valves are open in order to allow the filling up of the carburettor tank.
The writing BRC becomes orange.
c) petrol operation
With the button turned to the left, the writing BRC becomes red, the gas solenoid valves
are closed while the petrol one is open.
d) petrol/gas changeover
With the button in the centre for the changeover from petrol to gas, all the solenoid valves
are closed ad the fuel delivery is stopped in order to empty the carburettor.
The writing BRC is off.
1.3.3.3 LEVEL GAUGE
Inside the change-over switch there is a level gauge constituted by a led bar with four
green leds. The reserve indication is shown by the first led blinking.
Its operation can be obtained by connecting the electronic control unit to one of the three
available sensors:
- code 18CE00010046 GNC pressure sensor
- code 18CE00010047 LPG level sensor for BRC Multivalve
- code 18CE00010048 LPG level sensor for MV 92
The level gauge is already adjusted but the indication can be optimized or corrected by
using the software (see handly computer user's guide).
1.3.3.4 FAILURES AND ERRORS INDICATION
The ECO GAS system is able to carry out in real time a diagnosys of its operation.
Possible errors or failures are memorized by the Ecu and shown on the change-over switch
led bar when they occur: all the leds begin to switch on one by one going first from the left to
the right and viceversa.
It is also possible to consult the Ecu in the section CURRENT AND HISTORICAL
ERRORS by using the handly computer.
-12 -
Eco
Gas
1.3.3.5 ECO GAS SYSTEM CHECK-UP
Everytime the dashboard is switched off, the Ecu makes a check-up of all its parameters
and of the condition of all the components of the ECO GAS system. This condition of
check-up is shown by the change-over switch as follows: all the leds begin to switch on, two
leds together, going from the centre to the two ends and viceversa.
(P.S. In case of necessity, it is possible to stop the check-up for starting the car, providing
this does not happen during the parameters set-up or when a setting phase is finished).
1.3.4 THE HANDLY COMPUTER
The ECO GAS system is integrated by a programming handly computer (pict. 3.1) so
that it is possible to talk to the Ecu and to enter its memories and the central unit.
It is the instruments used by the technician to interact with the whole ECO GAS system
and, with this, he is able to personalize the gas installation according to the car
characterists in the different driving conditions.
Obviously the programming system has been structured in order to show to not skilled
technicians all the operations to do during installation, adjustment and diagnosis of the
system.
It is provided with a liquid crystal backlighted display which permits to show all the
information of the choisen option through the qualification of one of the six available buttons.
For more detailed information please refer to the specific section of the guide for the
handly computer use.

1.3.5 GAS FLOW CONTROL ACTUATOR
The control of the fuel quantity sent to the engine is carried out by the STEP actuator: it
is a step motor normally used in the automotive field to which we add a cilindric shutter
whose stroke creates a variation of the passage section of the gas in the duct.
The adjustment system is checked in real time by the Ecu which verifies the work done
and values both the oxygen sensor answer and the car operation conditions following an
already set mapping (it is also possible to manage it by software): reset position with cold
oxygen sensor and cut-off, idling, speed, acceleration and deceleration, engine load.
The rapidity of decision of the digital system and its flexibility guarantee an easy and
efficacious setting for the constant holding of the correct stoichiometric ratio on every kind of
car and engine.
The actuator has ben studied for an optimized operation both with CNG and LPG.
1.3.6 REDUCER
The ECO GAS system is suitable for LPG and CNG. Anyway the LPG or CNG reducer
has to be BRC ones, according to the current norms which do not allow different pairings
from the ones used during the homologation tests.
1.3.7 MIXER
Also for the mixer is the same: it is possible to install only BRC mixers.
P.S. The use of the ECO GAS, through the information given to the handly computer,
allows a skilled technician to evaluate possible malfunctions of the feeding mechanical system
and to find out the best position and setting according to the type of car.

1.4 THE ADVANTAGES OF THE ECO GAS SYSTEM
We have already stated that this system with microprocessor and the method for the
programming are at a very high level. Hereunder we would like to underline some important
characteristics:
1) ECO GAS is a system studied and projected by BRC technical staff to obtain a very easy
use both for the technician and the driver.
2) The diagnosis system always checks the correct operation of the whole system.
3) The self acquisition system make the setting of the Ecu easier removing the possibility
for the technician to make mistakes (we assure you that the self acquisition will be improved
in the future).
4) The electronic control system is programmed in such a way to be able to adapt itself to
the different driving conditions, improving performance and consumption.
5) The Ecu in and out stages are studied in order to avoid to damage the petrol original
car system maintaining unchanged the diagnosis and control systems during the driving.
Please follow carefully all the installation plans supplied by BRC Technical Assistance,
checking all the setting and connections.
6) The flexibility of the program both of the handly computer and of the Ecu permits to
the skilled technician to personalize the system operation according to every kind of
requirements.
7) The microprocessor system with programmable memories permits to have great
possibilities of future developments. BRC technicians are already studying them and are
ready to evaluate all suggestions coming from our installers in the context of a full
cooperationship which distinguishes BRC commercial policy and that is extremely useful for
the improvement of the components.
P.S.: the ECO GAS system is interchangeable with the I.B. Lambda Gas sytem (see
Appendix "B").

2. INSTALLATION GUIDE
2.1 Preliminar Operations
Before installing the ECO GAS components, as you have to do before converting a car, it is
important to verify the car petrol operation.
Particularly it is better to verify with care the ignition electric system, the air filter, the
catalytic silencer; check with a multimeter or with BRC devices (Jolly, Diagnostic Box, Polar)
the correct operation of the different signals: positive after turning the key, engine
revolutions, oxygen sensor, memories feeding of the petrol Ecu, injectors positive. Verify also
if the mass potential of the different signals is constant and corresponds to the one of the
point where you want to connect the mass of the ECO GAS Ecu: the acceptable change could
be of some 10 mV.
Another important thing is to attentively follow the instructions supplied by BRC and the
installation plans after having checked the type of car to be converted, the year of
manufacture, the engine type, the type of injection and ignition and obviously the possibility
of installing a gas system.
These are very simple actions which requires few minutes but will avoid possible future
problems and dispute with consequent loss of time.
P.S. Do not fix the conductors near the high tension cables of the ignition system.
2.2 Electronic Control Unit Installation
The ECO GAS Ecu has a new cover made of aluminium and plastic material parts, very
strong and with a great tightness, suitable to be directly installed in the engine compartment.
For a correct installation, please follow carefully these instructions:
- avoid to place the Ecu near to the exhaust manifold: the radiative heat caused by this
latter might damage the Ecu even if relatively far. It is necessary to put a wall between the
exhaust manifold and the Ecu in order to avoid the radiative heat.
- anyway it is necessary to place the Ecu in the engine space but protected by water.
Particularly it is necessary to fix it in order to have the sheaths towards the low avoiding the
humidity goes inside the connector, pouring on the sheaths (see picture 4)
The solution of fixing the Ecu inside the car, when possble, is always allowed; in this case
it is necessary to avoid not ventilated places, far from felt, moquettes, etc...
To fix the Ecu, use the idoneous holes and avoid other systems which could deform the
box. Please verify it does not vibrate.
-16 -
Eco
Gas
2.3 Electronic Control Unit Connection
The ECO GAS Ecu has to be connected by using the harness supplied by the
manufacturer.
All the connections has to be made with well done and insulated soft soldering. Do not
wind the cables or use an unreliable connecting terminal in anycase.
The following instructions are general and necessary for a good comprehension of the
system. For the application on single cars, please refer to specific connection plans.
At one end the harness has a main connector with 35 ways to which all the secundary
connectors and the different conductors come. The same colours used in the LAMBDA GAS
I.B. system have been maintained. Moreover the conductors are divided in sheaths in order to
mske the installation easier as possible.
() P.S. In the following tables we defined the signals coming to the Ecu with "in" and the
ones coming from the Ecu with "out".

2.3.4 5 WAYS DIN CONNECTOR FOR HANDLY COMPUTER
It links the Ecu to the programming handly computer during the setting (see chapter 3)
(pict. 9).
When the setting is finished, place the connector towards the low to avoid water in the
contacts; pay attention it does not hamper the operation of possible rolling devices placed
near it (eventually it is better to bind it to the other sheaths with a clamp).
2.3.5 6 WAYS MALE + FEMALE CONNECTOR
This connector has an emergency function in case of bad working of the gas installation.
On the male there are three idoneous jumpers to be used to reset eventually cut conductors
as indicated in the specific plans:
- oxygen sensor signals (yellow+light blue),
- Ecu memories (white+white/orange),
- injectors (orange+violet).
In this way the original petrol operation of the car is reset.
Once this connector is inserted, the car regularly runs with petrol even if the ECO GAS has
been taken away. This device can be particularly useful in order to find possible malfunctions
of the original petrol system, too as it resets everything as if the gas installation is not present.
The corrct use consists in inserting the connector and, according to the case, turn che
change-over switch in the "forced petrol" position or disconnect the main 35 ways connector
from the Ecu.
P.S.: an injectors emulator or a disconnector outside the ECO GAS Ecu, if out of order, can
not be by-passed with this system but has to be desassembled and checked.
During the normal operation, the male connector has to be preserved by the car owner and
this latter has to know perfectly the use of this connector, too.
Regarding the female connector, all the recommendations listed in 2.3.4 are valid.

2.3.7 SHEATH B
Colour type () description
Brown in positive after turning the key
Grey in engine ignition impulses
The connection of the BROWN cable absorbs a very little quantity of current so that any
positive after turning the key can be used. The most important thing is to verify that it is not
a point of the electrical installation subject to great loss of tension. For example, in some cars
it is not possible to use the ignition coil positive or the injectors one because they are preceded
by resistances which can low the potential of some volt.
The GREY cable has to be connected to an impulsive signal with a frequency proportional
to the engine rpm. It could be:
- a square wave signal found on the injection or ignition Ecus, if only with a sufficient
amplitude. It might be the cable which goes to the engine speed indicator or the connection
cable between the above Ecus and the ignition power module,
- a signal coming from the "negative of the ignition coil"
When it is possible, we recommend you to prefer the square wave signal. We advice you
against winding it in coils like an antenna on the high tension cable. In case there are not
other solutions (quite impossible), we suggest you to use the plastic reel supplied with the
BRAVO Ecu code 06LB00001016 keeping in mind that a correct changeover might not be
always guaranteed.

Orange - injectors cable (injectors side)
Violet - injectors cable (injectors Ecu side)
The ECO GAS Ecu permits to directly stop the operation of the injectors through a relay
with a switch and to deviate the current to the external emulator code 06LB00001054.
This solution is suitable for single-point systems (monoinjection) (pict. 14A) or multipoint
full group (more injectors controlled by just one cable) (pict. 14B).
In these cases, cut the cable which connects the monoinjectors (or the injectors) to the
petrol injection Ecu. We obtain two ends: the one towards the injector has to be connected to
the ORANGE cable and the end towards the injection Ecu has to be connected to the
VIOLET one.

When it is not necessary to emulate the charge of the injectors (the lights are off and there
are not malfunctions), the VIOLET and ORANGE cable will be used also for sequencial
multipoint system (that is more injectors separately controlled), by interrupting the only posi-
tive cable which feeds the injectors (pict. 15A and 15B).
P..S.: Take care to verify the feeding of other devices (such as the idling adjusting screw,
...) will not be stopped.
In this case the "4 channels disconnector with harness" code 06LB00001072 or without
harness code 06LB00001075 might be used, or the "right" and "left" models of the harness
(code 06LB50010015 and 06LB50010016), too. For the correct use of these devices, refer to
the instructions supplied with them. For the sequencial multipoint systems which require the
emulation of the injectors, use only the BRC "2" - "3" or "4" channels emulators with
harness.
In any case, refer to the detailed connection plan of the single car.

The ORANGE and VIOLET cables of the sheath D have to be connected to the
corrispondent ORANGE and VIOLET cables of the eventual injectors emulator code
06LB00001054. Always refer to the detailed connection plans of the single cars and
absolutely avoid to confuse the two sheats C and D.

Colour type (*) Description
Yellow in oxygen sensor signal
Light blue out emulated lambda signal
The oxygen sensor generally gives a signal between 0 and 1 V; in some type of cars it is
possible to find signals between 0 and 1,8 V or between O and 5 V. The ECO GAS Ecu,
idoneously adjusted by software, is able to adapt itself to all these types of oxygen sensors.
The connection of the YELLOW and LIGHT BLUE cables can be directly made on the
injection Ecu or on the oxygen sensor connector. Anyway, follow carefully the detailed

If it is necessary to emulate the oxygen sensor signal, the connection plan is the one
represented in the picture 18A. If it is not necessary, refer to the picture 18B.
Important: do not short-circuit the oxygen sensor cable nor towards the earth or towards
the positive. Do not apply load.
In case of doubt, the oxygen sensor can be easily found out by using the "Jolly" device
code 06LB00001086.

changing the point of the car mass, the potencial could vary of some tenth of Volt.
P.S. Check carefully the potential of the point where you want to connect the BLACK
cable by comparing it to the mass of the other signals (oxygen sensor, etc...)
The feeding of the possible external injectors emulators has to be connected to the
WHITE/GREEN cable (see specific instructions for installation)
Absolutely avoid to connect the emulator to the GREEN cable which feeds the gas solenoid
valves as, by doing this, it will be possible to use the fuels superimposition.
In case of installation made on carburettor cars, the WHITE/GREEN cable has to be
connected to the Petrol solenoid valve (see Appendix A)

Verify there are not excessive vibrations and that the weight of the step motor does not lie
heavily on the hose.
2.7 UNION CONNECTION FOR PRESSURE SENSOR
The ECO GAS Ecu has an internal pressure sensor which has the aim of measuring the
vacuum inside the induction manifold.
It has to be connected to a whatever point of the induction manifold between the throttle
body and the valves, as shown in the pictures 22 and 23, by using the idoneous unions.
For the connection we suggest you to use the following components:
- code 21RG99020001 "2 ways fork in nylon for idling"
- code 22TB00060001 "idling rubber pipe 5x10.5"
- code 21RG03010005 "idling nozzle M5x0,8"
For the connection of the pressure sensor on Turbo cars, see Appendix "D".

3. HANDLY COMPUTER INSTALLATION GUIDE
3.1 GENERAL CHARACTERISTICS
The handly programming computer is the necessary device for the installation and setting
of the equipment and allows the technician to "talk" with the ECO GAS Ecu.
It has to be connected to the ISO interface of the control Ecu, through the stereo 5 ways
DIN connector and it is equipped with an alphanumeric backlighted display to make easier
the night reading.
The handly computer allows:
- the display in real time of the required data (engine revolutions, oxygen sensor, induction
manifold vacuum, step motor position), and the driving conditions (cut-off, pumping)
- the possibility of verifying during the various phases that all the already done
connections and the behaviour of the required data are correct.
- the "drived" management of the Ecu and gas installation setting
- the complete control of the good operation of the system both through the direct
operation test of some components and through the interpretation of the shown data that a
skilled technician is able to do.
For the correct installation of the handly computer refer to 2.3.4.
P.S.: BRC handly computer is perfectly compatible with the previous ECO GAS 2000 Ecus
and all future programs will be suitable for the "old" ones.
For the technicians which have an "old" version of the handly computer, a suitable
convertion kit is already available in order to adapy it to the ECO GAS made by BRC.

3.2 GENERAL STATUS OF THE SYSTEM
To verify the "status" of the ECO GAS system during the different driving conditions, and
obviously the correct operation of the gas installation, both in the workshop and on the road,
it is possible to read the desired parameters with the handly computer, as shown in the
following flow chart. P.S. The following pages are obviously consultable even if the engine is
on. The panel lighting is enough in order to activate the handly computer and, after 1 second
the following page will be displayed:
The general system status displays:

4. SETTING OF THE SYSTEM
This paragraph describes the different pages displayed by the handly computer, their
meaning, the description of the various options in each page, the results caused by the choice
done, and the suggested options for the best engine and ECO GAS system operation.
The setting procedure is a sequence of operations which has to be done following the
indications of the handly computer, at least for the first time (the program foresees the
impossibility of operation outside the only correct and planned sequence). Anyway, according
to the technician necessity and his knowledge of the system, it is possible to execute the
phases again with a different sequence, even because the system signals every wrong
operation and does not accept data that are in contrast with the good operation and efficacy
of the control.
The ECO GAS system allows the selection of 3 different settings:
AUTOMATIC: The system automatically acquires the different parameters, checking if the
acquirements are really made during the conditions required for the setting. For example, it
checks that an acceleration is done in the correct way; if it is not correct, the acquirement is
not accepted and the operation has to be repeated.
SEMIAUTOMATIC: The system automatically acquires the different parameters but it
does not check if the the correct conditions occur during the setting: the technician has to
confirm all the operations by pushing the key "Enter" on the handly computer.
MANUAL: It allows to enter directly the values. The ECO GAS system does not carry out
any control on these data.
We suggest this option only to skilled technician or when you want to directly modify the
value of the obtained data, after having completed at least one time the system setting.
Each of the above setting is divided in:
- parameters setting;
- pressure sensor setting;
- oxygen sensor emulator setting (eventual);
- oxygen sensor setting;
- step motor reset position setting;
-35 -
Eco
Gas
PRELIMINARY OPERATIONS:
Before begining the setting phase, we suggest to start the car using petrol and to check on
the handly computer display if:
- the revolution numbers correspond to the real value,
- the pressure changes (it decreases during the acceleration and increases during
deceleration),
- the oxygen sensor signal moves from nearly 0 to more than 50: if you obtain an oxygen
sensor signal that is constant, it means the connection is not correct or that the oxygen sensor
is damaged or short-circuited.
The system setting has to be carried out after having kept the engine on with petrol for
some minutes until the cooling ventilator operates at least once.
ATTENTION:
Each time you insert the key and turn it, the handly computer start again the procedure. If
the engine stops during the setting, the handly computer displays the following page:
in this case it is necessary to:
- turn off the dashboard and wait until the change-over switch is off,
- insert the key again and switch on the dashboard only, without starting the engine,
- enter the setting procedure and start from the point where you stopped before.
ATTENTION:
It is necessary to insert the key and switch the dashboard on without starting the engine, or
the following page will be displayed :

The system automatically acquires the different parameters, recognizing the driving
conditions required to the technician during the setting.
This type of setting is recommended to technicians which are not yet practised with ECO
GAS: it is sufficient to correctly carry out all the operations indicated by the handly computer
and wait the self-acquisition of the values made by the Ecu is completed.

- at idling the step motor has to operate near the reset position obtained at 3000 RPM (not
lower) in order to not compromise the engine answer at pickup;
- if possible, verify "on road" the working position at 3000 RPM.
In the different driving condition, the step motor should work without great variations
(maximum 10- 15 steps of movement from the reset position with the engine at idling, 8
steps while driving): if it is not possible, check the gas feeding installation (reducer, mixer, ...)

4.2 SEMIATOMATIC SETTING
The system autonomously acquires the different parameters but it does not recognize the
driving conditions required during the setting: the technician will have to confirm all the
operations with the key Enter on the handly computer.
This setting is suggested for technicians that already has a knowledge of the ECO GAS
system in order to make the setting shorter; moreover this procedure is necessary for all the
cars where the engine speed is controlled by the original Ecu (i.e. cars where the engine
returns to idling very slowly).
Many times the pages and the operations to be effected during the semiautomatic setting
are the same of the automatic one: therefore we suggest to refer the paragraphs of the
automatic setting (4.1) for more detailed informations for the common pages.

xxx - step motor reset position value ().
() The step motor reset position is very important for the good operation of the system:
- at idling the step motor has to operate near the reset position obtained at 3000 RPM (not
lower) in order to not compromise the engine answer at pickup;
- if possible, verify "on road" the working position at 3000 RPM.
In the different driving condition, the step motor should work without great variations
(maximum 10- 15 steps of movement from the reset position with the engine at idling, 8
steps while driving): if it is not possible, check the gas feeding installation (reducer, mixer, ...)

Appendix "A"
Dictionary of names and definitions
In this appendix we list some names and definitions which constantly appears during the
ECO GAS system use.
For the values which are a variable of the system setting and can be directly input by the
technician with the handly computer, please refer to the manual setting paragraph.
CUT-OFF - Engine condition characterized by a great vacuum value in the induction
manifold and by a rpm number above the set threshold.
Particularly it occurs for a vacuum value between the CUT-OFF INSERTION and
DISCONNECTION (4.3.2).
This condition is pointed out in the general system status page displaying the letter"C".
CUT-OFF DISCONNECTION (COM) - Vacuum value inside the induction manifold under
which the system operates the CUT-OFF disconnection (4.3.2).
PUMPING DISCONNECTION (POM) - Vacuum value inside the induction manifold above
which there is a new pumping and you leave the full load conditions (4.3.2).
CUT-OFF INSERTION (COH) - Vacuum value inside the induction manifold above which
the system operates the CUT-OFF insertion (4.3.2).
PUMPING INSERTION (POH) - Vacuum value inside the induction manifold during which
the pumping occurs and the system enters the full load conditions (4.3.2).
LAM MAGRO - Variable value which indicates the oxygen sensor convertion value under
which the system recognizes the lean mixture during the normal driving conditions (4.3.4).
LAM RICCO - Variable value which indicates the oxygen sensor convertion value above
which the system recognizes the rich mixture during the normal driving conditions (4.3.4).
LAMBDA MAGRO - Variable parameter which indicates the oxygen sensor convertion value
under which the system recognizes the lean mixture during the full load conditions (4.1.1).
LAMBDA RICCO - Variable parameter which indicates the oxygen sensor convertion value
above which the system recognizes the rich mixture during the full load conditions (4.1.1).
-70 -
Eco
Gas
PIENO CARICO (Full Load) - Engine condition characterized by a low vacuum value in the
induction manifold and by a rpm number above the set threshold. Particularly it occurs from
the moment when (accelerating) the vacuum value decreases under the PUMPING
INSERTION threshold and until the vacuum value is again above the PUMPING
DISCONNECTION threshold (decelerating)
POMPATA (PUMPING) - step motor opening (in open loop) and steps numbers set during
the setting (4.1.1). This function is effected while accelerating when the vacuum inside the
induction manifold achieves the PUMPING INSERTION threshold. To restore a new
pumping, it is necessary that this vacuum increases above the PUMPING DISCONNECTION
threshold.
STEP MOTOR RESET POSITION - The reset position is the reference position of the step
motor with cold oxygen sensor to which you return in certain system operating conditions
(outside the Lambda control). It is important this value is near to the step motor position
during the normal driving conditions (4.3.5).
RICHNESS (RICC%) - With the word "richness" we define the time percentage during
which the oxygen sensor signal is rich (above a certain threshold for oxygen sensor with not
inverted signal). Through the entry to the variable RICC% it is possible to imput the
RICHNESS percentage of the emulated oxygen sensor signal (4.3.3).
SYSTEM SETUP - Restore of the initial values (set by the manufacturer) of all the
parameters and variable values of the system. It involves the loss of the values set until that
moment.

Interchangeability with the Lambda Gas I.B. system
The LAMBDA GAS system is born and has been entirely developped by BRC until its last
and definitive version called LAMBDA GAS I.B..
The ECO GAS system, with microprocessor, represents the completion of the lambda
control systems range BRC is able to offer to his technicians, range which is unique of its
kind.
As they pratically "grow up all together", the two systems have various analogies both
from the functional and structural point of view. Many parts of these projects have been
studied in a parallel way in such a way to create a synergy between this two systems in order
to contain the production costs and to invest more for the quality of the components.
There are also various advantages for the installation:
- reduction for the spare parts stock;
- continuity of the installation method; it allows to transfer the acquired experience from a
system to another;
- system interchangeability.
The following table lists the difference for the installation of the two systems:

Appendix "C"
Cars with carburettor engines
The ECO GAS Ecu is prearranged for the installation on carburettor cars, too: in this case
it is necessary to select via software, with the handly computer, the different options in the
parameters setting.
Obviously it is necessary the car has an oxygen sensor installed.
All the potentiality of the system with microprocessor are valid: lambda control functions,
diagnosis and setting, check-up, level indication, changeover and safety car.
INSTALLATION
The connection plans shown in the chapter 2 for the sheath A and B are still valid. There
are variations for the connections which refer to injection cars own functions and not
necessary. In particular:
Sheath C (par. 2.3.8.) Orange and Violet cut and insulate
Sheath D (par. 2.3.9.) Orange and Violet cut and insulate
Sheath E (par. 2.3.10.) Light blue emulated oxygen sensor signal

Appendix "D"
Cars with Turbo engine
The ECO GAS system includes a TURBO version expecially studied for turbo cars.
code 06LB 0000 1531 ECO GAS "Turbo" device
code 06LB 0000 1591 ECO GAS "Turbo" Electronic Control Unit
The difference immediately verifiable is the two unions for the pressure sensor connection
on the electronic control unit: in fact it is necessary to elaborate a differential pressure signal
in order to quantify the turbine effect.
Selecting "TURBO" during parameters setting the Ecu will automatically refer to a
different mapping for the carburation control, expressly studied to allow an high driving and
very good performance for this type of car.
INSTALLATION
For the reducer installation, please refer to the usual turbo installations, with
compensation on the 2nd stage diaphragm.
Code 01RD00301000 LPG AT90T Turbo reducer
Code 01RM00030004 CNG Turbo reducer without manometer
For the pressure sensor connection, identify the two points for the convertion (see picture
in the next page):
- A1 on the induction manifold (after the throttle body) to be connected to the union "A";
- B1 between the turbine and the mixer to be connected to the union "B".
For the connections we suggest to use the following items:
- code 21RG99020001 "2 ways fork in nylon for idling",
- code 22TB00060001 "idling rubber pipe 5x10,5,
- code 21RG03010005 "idling nozzle M5x0,8.
