Making the switch to LPG Autogas will keep a lot more money in your wallet.
Autogas is on average 50 percent cheaper than other automotive fuels. Every week, you will be keeping half your the money you usually spend on petrol.
For instance, at a $1.40 per litre, a standard sedan traveling 28,000 kilometres a year on Autogas would save $2,020 – the equivalent of $38 per week. This sure adds up over the years!
And by driving an LPG car, you are also helping save our environment because they emit significantly fewer greenhouse gases and other pollutants than cars on petrol.
Unlike in the past, today’s LPG Autogas engines deliver performance and fuel efficiency that competes with modern petrol-powered engines.
Also, with autogas engines, torque is available at lower revs, helping driveability – particularly in city driving. Total torque is even increased in some cases.
Electronic Fuel Injection cars do differ in performance. Where possible, the Autogas system is interfaced with the original EFI computer. While top speed may be marginally reduced and acceleration times cut by fractions of a second, most drivers would be unlikely to detect the difference.
Late model vehicles running on Autogas use approximately 30 percent more fuel than petrol-powered equivalents. Although, high consumption petrol vehicles may in fact use only 20 percent more autogas. This is more than offset by the much lower cost of Autogas, which is typically half the price or less of unleaded petrol.
Australian standards governing the safety of such systems is the most stringent in the world.
LPG stands for Liquefied Petroleum Gas – a mixture of light hydrocarbons that are gases at normal temperatures and pressures, but liquefy at moderate pressures or reduced temperatures. LPG used as automotive fuel is referred to as LPG Autogas.
The main component gases of Autogas are propane (C3H8) and butane (C4H10). Autogas is colourless, odourless and heavier than air. A sulphur based chemical (ethyl mercaptan) is added to give it a smell, so that even a very small leak can be easily detected. LPG Autogas burns readily in air and has an energy content similar to petrol, which makes it an excellent fuel for automotive use.
Vehicle warranty is not made void by the installation of an LPG system. However, the vehicle manufacturer will not warrant the LPG system (unless fitted or endorsed by them) and manufacturer will not warrant anything that is affected by having the LPG system fitted or running the vehicle on LPG. These items are covered by the LPG system supplier and installer and are usually for 2 years or 50,000 kilometres. Extended warranty products are also available (for a small additional charge) to cover the vehicle for longer periods. Please check with your installer for both normal warranty cover and extended warranty options. You might also like to check out the Secure Warranty web site.
