Liquefied petroleum gas (also called LPG, GPL, LP Gas, autogas, or liquid propane gas) is a flammable mixture of hydrocarbon gases used as a fuel in heating appliances and vehicles. It is increasingly used as an aerosol propellant and a refrigerant, replacing chlorofluorocarbons in an effort to reduce damage to the ozone layer.
Predominantly in Europe, LPG can provide an alternative to electricity and heating oil (kerosene). LPG is most often used where there is not access to piped natural gas.
LPG can be used as a power source for combined heat and power technologies (CHP). CHP is the process of generating both electrical power and useful heat
Benefits of LPG over other fuels
The cost of LPG is half that of Petrol. Yes that’s right half !
The case for LPG over other fuels is compelling.
The benefits for the environment are underpinned by Government initiatives (i.e. reduced taxes and charges). There is also reduced wear and tear on the engine.
