LPG

What is LPG?

Like petrol and diesel, LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas), which is sometimes also called autogas in the car industry, comprises hydrocarbon compounds. The main components of LPG are propane and butane. Large quantities of petroleum gases are released when extracting oil and natural gas, and refining crude oil. Compressing these petroleum gases convert them to a liquid state, and creates LPG.

LPG is a cleaner fuel compared to petrol and diesel. So using LPG as a vehicle fuel helps to improve the air quality.

Frequently asked questions about driving on LPG.

WHAT WARRANTY IS OFFERED ON THE LPG SYSTEM?

We offer a two or three year factory warranty on each Prins LPG system, depending on the type of system and whether it has been installed by an official Prins dealer. Ask your conversion centre for more details.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO FIT AN LPG SYSTEM?

The average fitting time is 2-3 working days. Please contact the conversion centre for more information.

IS A REPLACEMENT VEHICLE PROVIDED?

Some conversion centres offer this service, but not all. Please contact the centre directly.

WILL I LOSE SPACE IN THE BOOT BECAUSE OF THE EXTRA TANK?

Today's LPG systems can be supplied with a doughnut tank. This type of tank is placed in the spare wheel well to avoid reducing your boot space. Click here for more details about fitting configurations.

CAN I STILL DRIVE ON PETROL AFTER THE GAS SYSTEM HAS BEEN INSTALLED?

The current Prins LPG-systems are installed in parallel to the normal petrol system. So you can switch back to petrol at any time.

WILL MY CAR LOSE POWER AFTER THE GAS SYSTEM HAS BEEN FITTED?

No, there is no loss of power. The car retains its current engine power output.

Is LPG dangerous?

Due to strict safety standards and the requirement to have the system installed by an RDW-accredited LPG fitting centre, LPG cars are just as safe as petrol and diesel cars.

WHAT IF I HAVE A PROBLEM: FOR EXAMPLE, WILL THE ANWB'S BREAKDOWN MECHANIC BE ABLE TO HELP ME?
