Safety & Environment

Using LPG as car fuel is an important contribution to reducing CO2 emissions by about 15% compared to petrol! LPG also improves air quality compared to diesels since it has up to 55% lower emission levels of NOx. Furthermore, LPG as a transition fuel can contribute to meeting the 20-20-20 environmental targets and is absolutely a very safe fuel!

What is NOx

NOx is combination of NO (nitrogen oxide) and NO2 (nitrogen dioxide). NOx has a very negative effect on health and contributes to the formation of summer smog, acid rain, acidification of the soil, the quantity of fine particles in the air and eutrophication in the soil. About 20-30% of emissions from a diesel engine consist of NOx.

Even with a CRT filter on a diesel engine, the emission level of fine particles is still 77% higher compared to an LPG engine. In addition, the noise level of an LPG engine is significantly lower than that of a diesel engine. In conclusion, we can say that LPG is the best choice if you are looking for a fast and easy way to make a clear, positive contribution to the environment.

Safety

Thanks to strict government requirements, LPG is an exceptionally safe type of fuel. An LPG tank usually holds fuel at a pressure of a little under 8 bar, but it is tested at a pressure of no less than 27 bar! Furthermore, every LPG tank is fitted with many safety features. The supply of fuel is automatically closed off as soon as the engine stops. Gas tanks are fitted with a filling limiter, so they can only be filled to 80% at most. This allows the gas to expand. Should the pressure in the gas tank nevertheless become too high, a pressure regulator will be activated and immediately reduce the pressure again.

LPG is naturally odourless. For safety purposes, a strongly-smelling substance is added to LPG as a signal function. Thanks to all these security features, the chance of accidents happening is zero.
