What to consider before LPG conversion

LPG installers in Europe

The graph shows the cost of Petrol and LPG through a period of five years. The return of investment i.e. the cost of installation of gas system is recovered in 31.21 months - where the lines cross each other. At the end of 5 year period the difference between using gasoline and LPG without unforeseen complications is around 1475.60 € .

The use of LPG also reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The following graphs show the difference in the quantity of emissions between petrol and LPG used in five year span.

Difference: 800.00 kg

Gasoline: 16.00 kg
LPG: 12.23 kg

Difference: 3.77 kg

Quantity of HC in five year span

Gasoline: 2.58 kg
LPG: 2.04 kg

Difference: 0.54 kg

The perfect calculator for calculating the cost unfortunately does not exist, as the costs vary from car to car. LPG autogas consumption compared to Petrol and the speed of switching between petrol and gas in the cold and warm engine are only two out of many differences, which can make the consumption vary. Because of this problem we used a 20% increase in consumption, which may occur due to fuel energy density, octane level, etc. Different providers have different service intervals for LPG systems, so we added in the calculation lump sum of 30€ per 20.000km.
