Autogas is the common name for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) when it is used as a fuel in internal combustion engines in vehicles- cars, buses, lorries or trucks. It is today the most accepted alternative fuel in the automotive sector with more than 21 million vehicles operating worldwide.
Global consumption of Autogas has been rising rapidly in recent years, exceeding 23 million tonnes in 2011 – nearly 10mMT, or 60%, up on 2000 levels. There are now more than 21 million Autogas vehicles in use around the world. Yet the use of Autogas is still concentrated in a small number of countries: five countries – Korea, Turkey, Russia, Poland and Italy – together account for more than half of global Autogas consumption today.
The added value of LP Gas as an automotive fuel is that it brings a reduced carbon footprint; generating considerably fewer emissions than other traditional fossil fuels, contributing to the protection of the environment and human health while also mitigating the threat of climate change.
Autogas vehicles have both original equipment manufacturers and conversion offerings in the light & medium duty range (cars, pickup trucks & vans) as well as the bus market.
