LPG is a fossil fuel which is a mixture of butane (C4H10) and propane (C3H8), with less carbon atoms in comparison with conventional fuels.This leads to a reduction of 11% CO 2 as per burned amount of energy.The fuel LPG is a waste product of thewinning of cruel oil and the refinery process.
Furthermore, LPG is won from gas fields, for example “Slochteren” in the Netherlands.Most of LPG is being torched off directly during the cruel oil/natural gas winning process, which causes tremendous loses of energy and unnecessary CO2 pollution.
The amount of torched off LPG is so big, that it equals the total European automotive energy needs.
Considering the fair consumption of LPG worldwide, the fuel is still seen as ’alternative fuel’
When decided to make use of the fuel LPG on a current running vehicle, the vehicle needs to be equipped with an after market injection system. In most cases this means a conversion to a low tech vaporise system with less impact in comparison to a high tech LPG-LDI system.
