Autogas is the term generally used for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), when it is used for the propulsion of of road vehicles.

It is obtained as a by-product of the distillation of oil from crude oil and from “wet” North Sea Gas. It is produced in large quantites, a surplus of approximately 4 million tonnes per annum is currently available form the North Sea. This surplus is forecast to increase over the next 20 years.

When it is pressurised it becomes a liquid and it is in that form that it is pumped into your tank. Compared to petrol, Autogas has a higher octane content (according to the RON method):

- super grade petrol is rated at 98 octane
- Lead free petrol is rated at 95 octane
- Autogas (LPG) is rated at over 100 octane
