So where is the good news? A reliable alternative fuel is already here, Liquid Propane Gas, it is now possible to convert cars in such a way as to modify the existing vehicle fuel systems from single fuel (petrol) into bi-fuel (petrol & LPG) engine systems. So what are the LPG conversion costs for those of us who are looking to modify our existing vehicles?
Firstly, let us outline some of the more general financial advantages of a car that runs primarily on LPG fuel. Because LPG is more environmentally friendly than diesel and petrol, the UK government has agreed to maintain lowered taxes on LPG, meaning that it is cheaper at the pumps. Currently, LPG prices are around half the price of diesel and 45% of unleaded petrol prices (AA Fuel Price Report September 2010); at the time of writing, the exact costs averaged across the UK, are LPG= 66p Diesel= £1.20 and Petrol= £1.17. The difference in price will continue for the foreseeable future.
Next, LPG conversions allow vehicle owners to save money in other areas too. Once a car has been converted, it generally produces fewer emissions; this means that the car falls into a lower car-tax bracket, thus costing less. In addition, cars which run on bi-fuel or dual-fuel and which meet the necessary emissions criteria can qualify for exemptions from congestion charges - these can cost upwards of £5 a day so this exemption can be extremely beneficial for car owners.
Car conversions are fairly inexpensive, they are time efficient too - taking around 4-5 days to complete. LPG conversion costs start from as little as £1200, if you take into consideration the price of petrol and average annual mileage of 10,000 the conversion will pay for itself within the first year.
Moreover, cars which run on LPG generally keep their value better than standard diesel or petrol cars, meaning that the car will not depreciate in value to the extent that it would prior to conversion. Cars that run primarily on LPG petrol have fewer maintenance costs, LPG is a cleaner fuel than petrol and diesel, and does not leave as much of a deposit on the internal mechanisms of the engines, this means there is less corrosion, thus less need to change or repair internal parts.
