Environmental Benefits

If you drive an LPG Autogas vehicle it’s good to know that, in addition to saving large amounts of money, you can also contribute to saving the environment.

  • LPG Autogas powered vehicles emit significantly fewer greenhouse gases and other pollutants than petrol-powered equivalents.
  • LPG typically has around 20 per cent less ozone forming potential (a measure of the tendency to generate photochemical smog), between 10 and 15 per cent lower greenhouse gas emissions and only one fifth air toxics emissions.
  • LPG Autogas vehicles operate even more relatively cleanly when the engine is cold. Given that most urban-use vehicles are often used for very short journeys this means a significant reduction in “real world” emissions.
  • LPG Autogas is also much cleaner than diesel. The dirty black smoke that we see coming from diesel vehicles is particulates – a known cause of sickness and deaths. By replacing a diesel engine with an LPG Autogas-powered equivalent, over 90 percent of this particulate matter would be eliminated.
  • LPG Autogas is also much cleaner during the refuelling process. When refuelling with petrol or diesel, chemical vapours escape into the atmosphere and can also be breathed in during the entire refuelling process. Autogas refuelling is a fully sealed process.
