LPGA Approved Installer SchemeWe are members of the LPGA Approved Installer Scheme

The Scheme, set up in conjunction with the DfT, is the standard for the industry and the only scheme to receive official government recognition.

Consumers should look out for the logo of the Scheme to ensure that the conversion will be undertaken in a safe and satisfactory manner.

SINGLE-POINT
- MULTI-POINT
SEQUENTIAL LPG INJECTION?

What's the difference?

Single Point systems are less expensive, and suitable for older vehicles. The system mixes the LPG gas in the air inlet side of the engine. There is a slight risk of damage caused by backfire.

Multi Point systems offer better performance, economy and reliability, and the latest systems offer performance that is on par with the existing petrol injection system. Multipoint LPG Injection greatly reduces the risk of backfire. Suitable for all cars 1992 - 1999.

Multi-point Sequential systems have recently been developed to cope with the advanced emissions and OBD systems on Euro3 engines that were introduced from 2000. Using complex software techniques to control the injection based on data from the vehicle's petrol ECU, each system is tailored to a specific engine code and provides superb performance, reliability and driveability. Suitable for all cars 1992 - Present Day

To this end Central Garage (Carcroft) are moving forward with the new technology, offering multipoint injection systems that mirror Petrol injection strategies as installed on modern motor vehicles.

THE SAFE ALTERNATIVE

In terms of combustion LPG is similar to petrol. However, because LPG is stored under pressure, the vehicle tank is much stronger. Indeed an LPG tank can survive far greater impacts than either petrol or diesel tanks.

SAFETY FEATURES ON THE VEHICLE

  • Electronic solenoid valve's which will shut off the supply of gas when the ignition is switched off or the engine stalls.
  • Solenoid valves shut off the gas supply if the fuel pipe is damaged for any reason.
  • In a fire the tank is designed to withstand enormous pressure and very high temperatures
  • With over 4 million vehicles world-wide running on LPG it has an exemplary safety record.

BENEFITS

  • FUEL BILLS REDUCED
  • ENGINE LIFE INCREASED
  • MAINTENANCE COST REDUCED
  • COLD STARTING IMPROVED
  • NO POSSIBILITY OF FUEL THEFT


REFUELLING DUAL FUEL

For the individual or companies without a central base there is an ongoing programme encouraged by central government to dramatically increase the number of forecourt filling stations selling LPG.

BP, Shell, Jet and Esso have all promised installations of up to 500 units each on their forecourts within the next four years.

Sainsbury supermarkets are also putting LPG facilities on their filling stations as they are refurbished. We can supply you with a full list of filling stations updated monthly.

The time required to refuel a vehicle is similar to refueling with petrol or diesel.

For any company running vehicles from a central base, an LPG tank on your premises is by far the most convenient and economical way to refuel.

A full list of LPG Refueling Stations is available on the LPGA website

FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS
There is a significant financial advantage in switching to LPG as a fuel. The rate at which excise duty is levied is very much lower for LPG compared with petrol and diesel. Furthermore, duty on LPG as a road fuel has been consistently reduced over recent years, and the Government is committed to increasing the duty gap between petrol, diesel and cleaner gas fuels.

WHAT IS LPG?
Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) is an environmentally friendly fuel. In this country it is comprised mainly of propane. It is a by-product of the petroleum industry and is also found in natural gas. When the gas is held under a moderate pressure it becomes a liquid and in this form can easily be stored

LPG INSTALLATION KIT

  • Most petrol vehicles can be converted to LPG.
  • LPG price is currently around half that of petrol.
  • LPG price varies from 34p to 40p per litre.
  • You can refuel in your area. Currently over 1300 sites in the UK.
  • One new LPG refueling site is opening every day. Many in BP, Shell, Jet and Asda stations.


ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

CONTRIBUTING TO A HEALTHIER WORLD

LPG as a road fuel provides a number of benefits compared with conventional fuel vehicles. LPG produces fewer harmful emissions that impact on the local air quality, and also reduces output of carbon dioxide, the main global warming gas. LPG vehicles are also quieter.

EASE OF USE
Drivers can switch from LPG to petrol at the touch of a button. With a dual fuel vehicle the mileage is dramatically extended, giving almost double the range of a conventional vehicle.
