What is LPG?

LPG stands for "liquefied petroleum gas" and is a hydrocarbon consisting mainly of a mix of propane and butane. LPG is obtained either from a petroleum refining process or directly extracted from deposits after separating from natural gas or petroleum. It is an excellent fuel for traction, being cheap and environment-friendly. LPG engines are much cleaner since they do not produce waste such as lead, benzene, sulphur - all totally absent in LPG. In fact the exhaust gases produce less than 15% carbon dioxide, less than 20% carbon monoxide and less than 60% other hydrocarbons than other fossil fuels. LPG is therefore so efficient that it also grants engine long life, reduces oil consumption and overall improves the quality of environment.

How to calculate the savings accurately:
1. On a Monday morning fill the fuel tank full. Take a note of the mileage (ODOmeter). Put this value in 'Mileage 1'
2. After a normal use week again on Monday morning refuel the tank again to the full. Take a note of the mileage (ODOmeter). Put this value in 'Mileage 2'
3. Take a note of the cost of the fuel to fill the tank. Put this value in 'Cost to Fill Tank'
