About Propane Autogas
Autogas is the name used for the Automotive applications of the fuel source Propane or LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas). It is also widely known as: “Auto Propane”, “LPGas” or “Propane Autogas”. Autogas is the most used alternative fuel worldwide. The low-carbon fuel consists of a combination of multiple gasses, mostly propane and butane. It is stored in liquid form.
Propane is a byproduct of domestic natural gas processing and crude oil refining. 99% of US and Canadian Autogas is produced in North America, so using Autogas in vehicles means reducing our dependence on foreign oil and supporting your local industry.
Autogas is an affordable and accessible fuel. Compared to conventional vehicles on gasoline or diesel, driving an Autogas vehicle significantly reduces your fuel costs and reduces GHG emissions such as CO2, harmful particles and NOx.
Propane Autogas for your Vehicle Fleet
Autogas is a gaseous fuel that can be used in many different types of internal combustion spark ignited engines, from boat engines to lawnmower engines, industrial engines, forklifts and obviously on and offroad vehicle engines.

In Canada and America they are more common in various industries since companies want to save on fuel cost and reduce their vehicle emissions.
