What is Autogas ?

 

Autogas or lpg are both alternative names for propane.

Propane is a naturally occurring gas and a constituent part of both oil, and natural gas. Natural gas is a mixture of several gases, including Methane, Ethane, Propane, Butane, Hexane, and Heptane. Propane consists of about 3% of its make up. It is is extracted as part of the refining process of crude oil.

Propane is the third most common motor fuel, after petrol and diesel, and comes way ahead of electrically powered vehicles.

Propane is better known as the red bottles that fuel the nations caravans and gas barbeques. 

Propane becomes a liquid at -42 deg C, or if it is held under a pressure exceeding 175 psi. It has a higher octane rating (105) than any pump fuel available in this country.

It is heavier than air,  but about half the weight of water and has no odour. A smell is added during production for safety. Compared to the cost of petrol or diesel it is less than half the price.
