"lpg car conversion " is quite a common phrase when researching the LPG Conversion industry and has been used in the following text replacing "LPG".

The sharp fluctuations in oil prices carry on to stimulate public and private drivers into shifting their fuel use, with those powered by Autogas which is liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) having tripled within the last three years. There was a continuous rise in the quantity of taxi fleets changing to use Autogas or LPG.

A large number of private drivers are having their vehicle changed to run on LPG and a lot of businesses have their van fleets running on LPG.

Chemically, LPG is a combination of two combustible gases called propane and butane both of them are hydrocarbons like oil. LPG is 80% propane and 20% butane together with tiny quantities of various other gases. Since LPG is usually odourless, small quantities of a pungent gas is put intoit to help people smell potentially dangerous gas leaks.

Autogas cars give off less Carbon dioxide green house gas pollution than petrol cars. The average decrease in tailpipe emissions approximately 10% however because LPG is a by-product a further 10% saving is made. LPG offers substantial enhancements on exhaust pollution in comparison with even the greenest of diesels where particles (PM10 and PM25) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) are still a genuine problem. This should actually be considered a prime issue because it has been estimated that more than 24,000 people die prematurely in great Britain each year because of this pollution. LPG delivers around 80% lower NOx emissions.

There are numerous UKLPG approved LPG Conversion [' lpg car conversion '] centres at garages throughout the UK.
