Environmental Benefits

Autogas is Cleaner and Greener - today's vehicles are much cleaner than they used to be but they still contribute to air pollution, vehicles converted to run on autogas produce far fewer of the harmful emissions associated with traditional fuels and so offer the best environmental alternative.

Carbon dioxide leaf

  • Autogas is a low carbon content fuel which reduces your carbon footprint.
  • Autogas produces fewer harmful emissions that impact on air quality.
  • Autogas engine noise is low reducing noise pollution.
  • Autogas will quickly evaporate in the event of a fuel spill, unlike petrol and diesel so there is no risk of ground or water contamination.

 

Based on independent testing of nearly 9,000 cars from the EU that were manufactured recently and that have state-of-the-art pollution controls, those that run on LPG produce 11% less CO2 in operation and about 15% less from ‘well to wheel’, i.e. over the entire fuel supply chain than identical cars run on petrol.

 

The research also indicates that LPG cars produce less NOx than both petrol and diesel ones. In fact, when compared to diesel, five times less NOx is emitted. LPG vehicles are significantly lower on particle emissions as well.

Cleaner

Air quality, particular in urban areas, is a continuing issuefor the nation's health.

 

In 2004 Department of Health statistics show that particulates are responsible for thousands of advanced deaths and thousands of instances of illness. NOx emissions are also a major element of low level ozone, which causes smog and can worsen existing asthma conditions.

Extensive independent tests showed that:

  • One diesel vehicle emits 120 times the amount of fine particles as the equivalent LPG vehicle.
  • It takes 20 LPG vehicles to emit the same amount of NOx as one diesel vehicle.

Greener

Reduce your carbon footprint by running on LPG.

 

At the Tailpipe

  • LPG cars have 11% CO2 benefit

 

Research carried out in 2013 by Atlantic Consulting compared results for 1251 models of bi-fuel vehicles and concluded that there was an average 11% CO2 tailpipe benefit when running on LPG compared to the identical car running on petrol.

 

Well to Wheel – the figure calculated for LPG is considerably lower than other fuels:

  • Diesel is 29.2% higher than LPG
  • Petrol is 26.8% higher than LPG.

 

The above figures are sourced from the European Fuel Quality Directive which places LPG as part of the solution to decarbonising the transport sector in Europe.

 

All fuel types are given a greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity figure. This figure is calculated on a life-cycle basis, meaning that the emissions from the extraction, processing and distribution of fuels are included. The EU has set a target to reduce the greenhouse gas intensity of fuels.
