The LPG fuel used in LPG powered cars is quite often called “Autogas”

It is typically either pure propane or a propane/butane blend.

Autogas enjoys great popularity in numerous countries and territories, including: Australia, the European Union, Hong Kong, India, the Philippines, the Republic of Macedonia, South Korea, Serbia, Sri Lanka and Turkey. It is also available at larger petrol stations in several countries,  it offers a very cheap alternative to both diesel and petrol

The Advantages of Autogas are:-

Autogas cars have lower running costs. Autogas is less expensive than petrol or diesel. Not only is running an LPG car economical, but Autogas is also beneficial for your car.

  1. LPG is a cleaner burning fuel than petrol, so engine life is actually extended. Engine oil and spark plugs need changing less often with LPG, so service costs are reduced. Octane ratings over 100 allow for higher compression ratios, which can increase power output.

  2. Environmental benefits include reduced particulate, CO2 and NOx emissions; Using Autogas creates appreciably less carbon dioxide (CO2) than unleaded petrol.  CO2 is the primary greenhouse gas causing long term climate change. The dirty black smoke that we see coming from diesel vehicles is fine particulate matter that is carcinogenic. When comparing a diesel engine with an LPG Autogas equivalent, emissions of this particulate matter would be cut by up to 80%

What is an LPG car ?

Environmental Benefits of Autogas ?

LPG cars run on LPG Autogas, with 25 million worldwide.

LPG cars can be OEM single fuel models or dual fuel LPG conversions that run on either LPG or petrol.

Most Autogas vehicles are after-market conversions, usually converted shortly after the original vehicle purchase.

There are four types of LPG conversion systems:

1. Converter-and-mixer systems

2. Vapour phase injection (VPI)

3. Liquid phase injection (LPI)

4. Liquid phase direct injection (LPDI)

Using Autogas creates appreciably less carbon dioxide (CO2) than unleaded petrol.

CO2 is the primary greenhouse gas causing long term climate change.

When examined from a “Well to Wheel” perspective, the CO2 benefit is even greater.

This includes emissions associated with the processing and transportation, as well as use.

Diesel CO2 emissions are 29.2% higher than LPG whilst petrol is 26.8% higher than LPG.

LPG cars also produce 95% less ozone and smog causing NOx than diesel engines.

The dirty black smoke that we see coming from diesel vehicles is fine particulate matter.

These fine particles may be deeply inhaled into the lung and carry with them a collection of attached hazardous compounds.

Experts at the World Health Organisation (WHO) say diesel engine exhaust fumes are carcinogenic.

One of the key environmental advantages of Autogas over diesel, as well as petrol, is the near-absence of particulate matter (PM) emissions.
