LPG Saves You Money
LPG is cheaper than petrol thanks to agreed lower taxes.
Because of the environmental benefits, the government
has fixed duty on LPG relative to petrol and diesel three
years in advance. What this means is the duty levels announced
enable the price of LPG to continue around half the price
of petrol/diesel for the foreseeable future.
Miles per Gallon on LPG can be up to 15% less than on petrol,
so overall savings of up to 40% can be achieved.

LPG is Environmentally Friendly
LPG gives out lower and cleaner emissions compared to
petrol and diesel.
Recent tests have shown that on a well to wheel basis
LPG vehicles averages similar CO2 to diesel and 20% less
than petrol. On urban roads a diesel vehicle emitted,
on average, the same quality of fine particles as 120
LPG vehicles and the same amount of NOx as 20 LPG vehicles.

LPG conversions are inexpensive
A conversion takes around 4 days to complete and costs
start from around £1600. At the time of writing,
unleaded petrol is close to £6.00 a gallon, if your
car returns 20 MPG, this equates to
30 pence per mile, assuming a saving of 50% overall,
the cost will pay for itself after just 10,660 miles.

An LPG Conversion Need Not Mean You Can No Longer Use
The usual procedure is to add a second tank with its
own filler and fuel gauges. There is no change to the
petrol tank and system, you can simply switch between
LPG and petrol by flicking a switch mounted in the armrest
or on the dashboard. Although LPG (or autogas as many
petrol stations call it) is available from over 1300 petrol
stations nationwide, you can still use the extensive network
of petrol stations when you cannot get to an LPG garage.
