bullet Question: Can diesel cars be converted to run on LPG ?

bullet Answer :
The previous approach to diesel conversion was to totally replace diesel with lpg. This did not work very well. We are actively looking into alternative lpg adaptions for diesel engines. Once we have trailed a successful method we will be rolling it out.

bullet Question: My car has engine warranty does installing an LPG kit void this warranty ?

bullet Answer :

Car manufacturers provide cars which run on LPG so voiding the warranty is not because of the technology. Our LPG kits are a proven technology. If installing the LPG kit voids your engine warranty, you can purchase engine warranty cover backed by leading insurance companies. Only LPGA authorised installers like ourselves are recognised by these insurance companies.

bullet Question: What is LPG?

bullet Answer :

Liquefied Petroleum Gas is the generic name for mixtures of hydrocarbons (mainly propane and butane). When these mixtures are lightly compressed (approx. 800 kPa or 120 psi), they change from a gaseous state to a liquid and become more dense (by approx. 270 times). Eg. 1 litre of LPG liquid is equal to 270 litres of LPG vapour. LPG is colourless, odourless and heavier than air, so a sulphur based chemical (ethyl mercaptan) is added to give it a smell like rotten cabbage, so that even a very small leak can be easily detected. LPG burns readily in air and has an energy content similar to petrol, which makes it an excellent fuel for heating, cooking and for automotive use.

bullet Question: How safe is LPG?

bullet Answer :

 LPG has been used safely in Australia for many decades. The Australia Standards for LPG equipment, appliances and their installation and for storage and handling are among the world's best. Every aspect of the LPG industry is covered by a National Code or Standard and also by similar or additional State Regulations. The Australian LPG industry in conjunction with LPG Australia actively pursue world's best practice in the delivery of all LPG products and services to consumers.

bullet Question: Are there different types of LPG?

bullet Answer :

YES. There are two different grades or blends of LPG and they are not interchangeable. One is for automotive use only (called autogas) and will contain butane and propane. The other is propane only, which is used for decanting into cylinders for caravans, barbecues, camping and household use.
For safety reasons autogas must not be used as a substitute for propane only applications like BBQs or household use.
