Autogas isn’t just a cost effective alternative to gasoline, it’s also a lot greener. In comparison to gasoline, burning autogas creates 12% less carbon dioxide, 20% less nitrogen oxide, 40% less smog producing hydrocarbons, and 60% less carbon monoxide.

With substantially less carbon monoxide production, autogas is ideal for using in semi-enclosed spaces where gasoline vehicle use could would present a substantially higher risk of carbon monoxide poisoning to people.

UPSTREAM EMISSIONS

Propane is a byproduct of oil or natural gas mining, and just like those fuels, its production and transport creates greenhouse gasses. Propane however creates an average of 12.1 kilograms of CO2 for every million BTU’s of energy, while compressed natural gas, gasoline, and diesel fuel all create over 17.
