LPG and LNG: clean, cost-effective transport fuels

Sustainable transport fuel solutions for people and businesses going places.

LPG and LNG for road transport

For decades, diesel has been the default fuel for vehicle fleets. Now there are other, better transport fuels that perform as well in terms of power, acceleration and cruising speed, but with added financial and eco benefits. As well as typically being 10-25% cheaper than diesel, meaning you’ll enjoy lower running costs, LPG and LNG have strong environmental benefits making them the sustainable fuel choice.

Sustainable, cost-effective alternatives to petrol and diesel

Diesel is no longer the only route for fleet fuel! Today, you have a choice of mono and dual fuel options with LPG, BioLPG and LNG.

LNG-fuelled trucks are comparable to diesel vehicles for power, acceleration and cruising speed, and reduce CO2 by 10% to 20%4. LPG cuts greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by over 26%5. What’s more, all new LNG-powered HGVs meet Euro 6 emissions standards required to enter Ultra Low Emissions Zones (ULEZ)6, making LNG a popular commercial fuel solution. 
LNG is typically between 10% and 25% cheaper than diesel, while LPG saves drivers around 40% on their fuel bills compared to petrol and diesel.  
LNG-fuelled engines are quieter so town centres and residential areas with noise restrictions are no longer out of bounds. And, as well as being a non-toxic, non-corrosive fuel, LNG cannot spontaneously combust below a temperature of 650°C (which is more than twice that of diesel).
With a significant reduction in particulate matter and NOx emissions, LNG transport is miles better for the environment. What’s more, unlike diesel, you don’t need to worry about the risk of leaks, ground or water contamination and hefty clean-up costs.
LNG is easy and cheap to transport and store. The process of cooling natural gas into a liquid form shrinks the volume so that it takes up around 600 times less space than when in its gaseous form. It also weighs less than water.
Increasingly, manufacturers and retailers are looking for an environmentally-responsible logistics partner to help them meet their sustainability goals. Fuelling your fleet with LNG, LPG or BioLPG could give you the edge when competing for new business contracts. Contact Calor for more information on commercial fuel solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Autogas is an increasingly popular commercial and transport fuel solution worldwide, with over 16 million vehicles now being powered by LPG. Cleaner and almost 50% cheaper than petrol or diesel, now Calor Autogas is made from BioLPG, a 100% renewable fuel, it offers even greater environmental benefits.
Yes, it’s easy to convert a car, van or fleet to LPG. Most petrol engines are suitable for an LPG conversion and many LPG kits can be completely integrated with the existing fuel and engine management systems of modern vehicles, giving you the option to switch between different fuel types.
LPG Autogas is about half the cost of petrol or diesel, reduces engine wear and generates far fewer harmful emissions: 17-23% less CO27 and 40% less NOx8, which reacts with other chemicals to form particulate matter. One diesel vehicle emits 120 times more damaging air particles than the equivalent LPG vehicle!9
Most LPG-powered vehicles today are dual fuel – meaning they can run on both petrol and LPG, transferring between the two at the flick of a switch. Fuel tanks can be conveniently installed beneath the boot floor, in the spare wheel well or mounted under the chassis, depending on vehicle type.
