What is Autogas?


About LPG 

Autogas is an alternative vehicle fuel that substantially reduces harmful emissions, costs less than gasoline and is almost entirely domestically produced. Propane (C3H8), or liquefied petroleum gas, is called autogas when used as a motor fuel. With more than 18 million vehicles worldwide running on autogas, it is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, just behind gasoline and diesel.


LPG   are the generic names used for mixtures of hydrocarbons (mainly propane and butane). When these mixtures are lightly compressed they change from a gaseous state to a liquid. Autogas is a safe, proven alternative fuel. Thousands of school buses and taxicabs across the U.S. are already fueled by autogas. Unlike gasoline, diesel, methanol and ethanol, autogas is nontoxic, nonpoisonous and insoluble in water.
Automotive LPG (Autogas) is specifically designed for use in a vehicle – with the specification governed by the requirements of the National Fuel Quality Standards Act 2000 and the Autogas Determination 2003.
