LPG and bio-LPG, also known as propane or autogas, is a clean-burning alternative fuel used to power light-, medium-, and heavy-duty vehicles. LPG fueled vehicles are a cost-competitive low-emissions alternative to vehicles that use gasoline (petrol) or diesel. LPG fueled vehicles are permitted to drive in emissions-restricted traffic zones in Europe.
