This research paper contains the results of analysis of a range of variation of the lower heating value of gas during the process of conversion of diesel locomotive engines to operation on natural gas as motor fuel. It was demonstrated in this paper that the range of variation of the lower heating value at the various fields considered in it varied within the limits to 32.4%. A proposal was made to take into consideration the so-termed lower heating value of diesel fuel and natural gas when running diesel locomotive engines on liquid-gas fuel complementary to atmospheric conditions.
