This article is devoted to assessing the energy efficiency of piston engines converted to gas engine fuel. On the basis of numerical simulation of the operating cycles of engines operating on different types of fuel (gasoline, propane, methane), their technical and economic indicators are analyzed. It has been established that converting a gasoline engine to propane results in a 5 % reduction in engine power while a 4 % reduction in specific fuel consumption; and the use of methane as a fuel causes a 12 % drop in power, with a 13 % reduction in fuel consumption.
