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.
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
