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.


The benefits of using/converting to LPG are:

  • Smoother, quieter, cleaner running for your car

  • Extended engine life

  • Much more environmentally friendly than petrol or diesel

  • Around half the price of petrol

  • Lower service costs

  • The ability to run on both petrol and gas – extending the cruising range

  • Improved safety using Approved LPG  systems – offering better crash/fire tolerance

  • Private use vehices can get a Government Rebate towards the cost of conversion

  • Business – high use vehicles – benefit most from the fuel cost savings

  • Added reliability – many petrol vehicle breakdowns are related to their fuel system

  • Creates option of using one larger/luxury car for all journeys in lieu of operating two personal vehicles

  • Vehicle value enhanced – especially on larger engined or luxury cars where running costs are reduced
