LPG Vehicles

Find out about LPG vehicles and the benefits they could offer your business

Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) vehicles work in the same way as a petrol vehicle. An internal combustion engine burns LPG to release energy and power the vehicle. LPG vehicles typically have a small petrol tank to provide extra driving range and help with winter conditions.

Many petrol vehicles can be converted to use LPG after they are purchased, and the driving characteristics, in terms of performance, range etc. remain very similar to that of the petrol version. 

Refuelling is done in the same way as for diesel and petrol vehicles, and the cost of refuelling is lower.

Refuelling is done in the same way as for diesel and petrol vehicles, and the cost of refuelling is lower. The cost of fuel on a per km basis is around 30% cheaper than for an equivalent petrol vehicle. LPG fuel burns cleaner than diesel or petrol and, as a result, harmful emissions are reduced.
