Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG), also known as propane, is less contaminating to the environment than diesel or gasoline. Fuel economy is similar to a gasoline engine. Modern conversion kits offer sophisticated technology that can improve fuel efficiency and performance in older engines.

Typical savings for common vehicles.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions from LPG are significantly less, so the conversion of any vehicle to LPG is a contribution to the environment and the reduction of global warming. Cleaner burning LPG can also reduce unwanted deposits inside the engine, leading to a longer useful life and lower maintenance costs.
In Costa Rica, LPG costs from 40% to 50% less than gasoline. The cost of the conversion can be quickly recovered, since fuel efficiency is equal or better, converting from gasoline to LPG will mean a $25 to $50 savings on each tank of gas. Read More

Whether you live on the beach, in the mountains or on a farm, your vehicle will be exposed to sun, rain, dust, dirt and road grime.

Getting an Exit Permit for Costa Rica Registered Vehicles
If you want to go see the Panama Canal or take a weekend trip to Nicaragua, then your car, truck, SUV or motorcycle with Costa Rican plates, must get a permit to leave the country. This is something you can do yourself, although someone else can do it for you with a notarized letter. The cost of the permit is about $11, but it is only good for 15 working days, so you have to leave the country within about 3 weeks of the time you get the permit. Following is the low down on the procedure, which varies according to whether the vehicle is owned by an individual, company, NGO, government agency, or if it is in the process of being registered to a new owner.
