Do LPG vehicles help the environment?

Whether you're a private motorist, a small business or manager of a large fleet, the benefits of LPG are too great to ignore. LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a proven high performance, clean, efficient and economical alternative to petrol. Both Petrol and Diesel fumes are among the greatest sources of pollutants suffered by the environment today.

LPG Autogas - the better fuel alternative

LPG helps to save the environment as it reduces the use of oil and significantly reduces the emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere;

  • Carbon Monoxide emissions are around 80% less than Petrol and 40% less than Diesel.
  • Hydrocarbon emissions are around 60% less than Petrol and 50% less than Diesel.
  • Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions are around 80% less than Petrol and 90% less than Diesel.

There are benefits to LPG that go beyond helping to save the environment. Spiralling petrol prices, diminishing world oil reserves, and the need to reduce motoring costs wherever possible have seen many individuals and companies consider the LPG Autogas alternative. Those that have made the change to LPG rarely go back to petrol.

This is because LPG Autogas not only substantially reduces fuel costs, it also reduces engine wear and thus maintenance costs, it improves engine smoothness and reliability and has virtually the same power output as petrol. Over 97% of taxis and 500,000 fleet and private vehicles now operate on LPG in Australia, a powerful testimony to the benefits of LPG Autogas.

LPG allows you to typically save between 40 - 60% of your vehicles total fuel costs, with those costs being recouped within 30,000 - 40,000 kilometres. You enjoy huge savings each year and to compliment that saving - your vehicles will have the extra added benefit of Dual fuel - thus allowing you to cover a greater range.
