The benefits of Autogas

Here's some of the most common reasons people switch their vehicles:

Autogas is typically about half the price of diesel or petrol; so converting to Autogas and installing an on-site refuelling station could result in annual fuel costs savings of around 40%. 
Autogas produces 17% less CO2 and 50% less NOX than petrol and 120 times less small particle emissions than diesel. 
Because Autogas is better for the environment the government encourages its use with incentives like lower duty rates and reductions in car tax. Other benefits often include free city centre parking, cheaper insurance premiums and congestion charge exemptions.
An Autogas system is typically an addition to the car or van, with petrol remaining the base fuel. Since drivers can switch between the two energy sources whenever they want, the distance they can travel is potentially doubled.
As Autogas is injected into combustion chambers as vapour - the optimal form - and LPG is a cleaner burning fuel than either petrol or diesel; switching to Autogas can prolong engine life.1
Autogas has a high octane rating (approximately 110), which means the engine runs more smoothly and accelerates more easily.
