As a fuel for vehicles, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), also known as autogas or propane, is fairly clean-burning and easy to store and ship.
The energy content is high, and it is readily available in many countries as well. Autogas’ per-gallon cost is generally lower than diesel fuel or gasoline, bur growing interest in natural gas may impede its future popularity.
However, Pike Research reports that the number of vehicles using auto gas is increasing.
David Alexander, a senior research analyst, points out that fuel suppliers feel that relatively few vehicles are equipped for auto gas and an incentive is needed to spur market growth. However, internal combustion engines can be adapted to use LPG with little difficulty, and the process is also relatively inexpensive.
“Propane Autogas Vehicles” is a report that discusses the benefits and problems related to auto gas vehicle conversions and focuses on countries where people have a special interest in them. It discusses the cost of installation labor and component sales by world region and analyzes the related drivers, market barriers and benefits.
