Diesel engine is one of type of internal combustion engine that is applied in industry, including the maritime industry. The increasing use of diesel engines, has a effect on increasing emissions. Diesel engines emissions consist of SOx, NOx, HC, and others. To reduce the emissions, there are many method, one of them is using dual-fuel system. The alternative fuel can be used is Gas, which is easily available, namely LPG or liquefied petroleum gas. To supply LPG to combustion chamber, a converter-kit are needed to be install on diesel engine. There are several previous research that prove that LPG can be used as an alternative in a dual-fuel system and can reduce the emissions. One of them by Ma'amuri (2016) who designed a mechanical LPG-diesel oil as dual-fuel, using a membrane converter. Result of this research provide that good diesel engine performance. In this research, LPG-diesel oil as dual-fuel using converter kit based on ECU or electronic control unit, and then, analyze the diesel engine emissions with experimental method. The purpose of this research is to determine the emissions produced by LPG-diesel oil as dual-fuel with converter kit based ECU. After taking and analytical data, known that the NOx emission from dual fuel diesel engine using ECU-based converter kit is lower than NOx emission from conventional diesel engine with B30 diesel fuel with percentage is 25,61 % for 3ms opening duration of gas injector, 39,99 % for 4 ms opening duration of gas injector and 26,5 % for 5 ms opening duration of gas injector. The NOx emission of conventional diesel engine is 2,46 g/kWh.
