Liquefied Petroleum Gas ( LPG )
As An Automotive Fuel
Autogas is the term generally used for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG),
when it is used for the propulsion of road vehicles. It is obtained as
a by-product of the distillation of oil from crude oil and from “wet”
North Sea gas. It is produced in large quantities. A surplus, (to increase
over the next 20 years), of approximately 4 million tonnes per annum is
currently available from the North Sea.
When the gas is pressurised to approximately 7 bar it becomes a liquid and it is in this form that it is pumped into your tank. Compared to petrol, Autogas has a higher octane content (see RON method – Super grade petrol 98 – Lead free 95 – LPG over 100 octane).
