A more sustainable transport fuel

Autogas - transport fuel that's cleaner and greener by miles

Autogas LPG is a cheaper, cleaner alternative fuel. It’s used in cars, vans and trucks in the same way as petrol or diesel.

Autogas LPG is cleaner than other fossil fuels, helping reduce your carbon footprint and improve air quality. It produces 17-23% less CO2 than petrol3 and cuts polluting hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides (NOx) by 40%.
Autogas LPG is not only around half the price of petrol or diesel but it is also better for your car, van or truck. As LPG is a cleaner burning fuel than petrol, engine life is extended. Additionally, engine oil and spark plugs need changing less often with LPG, so service costs are reduced4
Vehicles powered by Autogas LPG have a comparable MPG (miles per gallon) to petrol or diesel and there’s no noticeable difference to the way the car or truck drives. Nowadays, Autogas vehicles have direct fuel injection systems so give similar speed and acceleration for around half the fuel price.

Considering converting to Calor Autogas?

Autogas conversion is relatively straightforward for a specialist. It involves adding conversion technology to the car rather than removing its ability to run on petrol or diesel. This turns it into a ‘dual fuel’ vehicle that can run on LPG as well as petrol. The process involves installing a secondary fuel system in your vehicle with a separate tank and Autogas fuel gauge. There’s no need for a replacement engine.

  • Fuel costs halved
  • Emissions cut by 90%
