What is Autogas?
‘Autogas’ is simply LPG for vehicles, the most practical alternative to diesel and petrol. It is a vapour at normal pressure but under increased pressure becomes a safe and versatile liquid, easily dispensed from storage tanks to vehicles in the same way as diesel and petrol.
A common misunderstanding
By converting your vehicle to Autogas it will become a dual fuel vehicle meaning that if you run out of LPG you can simply switch to using petrol.
However, as there are over 1,400 LPG refuelling stations nationwide running on petrol should not be necessary.
Autogas is cleaner, greener and cheaper…
Autogas boasts the following environmental benefits over diesel and petrol:
- low carbon content fuel which reduces your carbon footprint;
- fewer harmful emissions that impact on air quality;
- engine noise is low reducing noise pollution.
The cost advantages of Autogas over diesel and petrol are also overwhelming:
- It offers an unrivalled opportunity for forecourt retailers to diversify their product range and increase profits;
- It allows fleet operators and consumers an opportunity to significantly reduce their automotive fuel costs.
