LPG AutoGas - The Better Fuel Alternative
Whether you're a private motorist, a small business or manager of a large fleet, the benefits of LPG are too great to ignore. LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) is a proven high performance, clean, efficient and economical alternative to petrol. Both Petrol and Diesel fumes are among the greatest sources of pollutants suffered by the environment today.
Sequential Gas Injection
This is the latest technology from Europe has been tested and approved for Australia. It is an electronically controlled LPG system for vehicles with petrol sequential injection.
The Multipoint sequential system employs an ECU that controls the gas injection sequence and the timing. Gas is injected through a rail of injectors directly into the inlet manifold thus obtaining a particularly precise mix to optimise the combustion process.
With LPG AutoGas Vehicles:
- Carbon Monoxide emissions are around 80% less than Petrol and 40% less than Diesel.
- Hydrocarbon emissions are around 60% less than Petrol and 50% less than Diesel
- Nitrous Oxide (NOx) emissions are around 80% less than Petrol and 90% less than Diesel.
Spiralling petrol prices, diminishing world oil reserves, and the need to reduce motoring costs wherever possible have seen many individuals and companies consider the LPG Autogas alternative. Those that have made the change to LPG rarely go back to petrol. Why? Because LPG Autogas not only substantially reduces fuel costs, it reduces engine wear and thus maintenance costs, it improves engine smoothness and reliability, and it has virtually the same power output as petrol. Over 97% of taxis and 500,000 fleet and private vehicles now operate on LPG in Australia, a powerful testimony to the benefits of LPG Autogas.
Furthermore a quality LP Gas conversion system would allow you to save between 40 - 60% of your vehicles total fuel costs, with those costs being recouped within 30,000 - 40,000 kilometres. So if you want to dramatically reduce your motoring costs "by half" you need to change only one thing - the fuel. You will enjoy huge savings each year and to compliment that saving - your vehicles will have the extra added benefit of Duel fuel - thus allowing you to cover a greater range.
