Auto LPG can be referred to as “Alternate Fuel”, which is same as domestic LPG. Both are same in every manner like in Chemical composition, extraction process, etc.
The only differences are:-
- Auto LPG doesn’t contain hydrocarbons (smell concern).
- Varying in Propane and Butane percentage.
It is a clean, high octane, abundant and Eco-friendly fuel having common named as Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG). It is the third most popular automotive fuel in the world. Approximately half of all the Auto Gas-fueled passenger vehicles are in the five largest markets Turkey, South Korea, Poland, Italy, and Australia. It is widely used as a “green” fuel, as it decreases exhaust emissions. Particularly, it reduces CO2 emissions around 25% compared to petrol.
Compared to petrol, vehicles running on AutoLPG emit around 12% less CO2 and around 30% less oxides of nitrogen (NOx), Hydrocarbons (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO). Compared to diesel there is around 90% less NOx, 1/50th of particulates and only 1/500th of the ultra fine particles.
The main air quality pollutants of concern in the India are particulates and NOx where in Central Delhi and Mumbai road traffic causes 93% of all particulate emissions and 58% of all NOx emissions. Department of Health statistics show that particulates are responsible for several thousand advanced deaths each year and many thousands of instances of illness and reduced activity. AutoLPG engines are 50% quieter than diesel engines and thus keep a check on noise pollution.
