“Pros and cons” of installing automotive LPG

Today gas is more than twice cheaper than gasoline, but is there any sense to install LPG on an inexpensive car. For example, such as Lanos?

The payback period depending on the mileage it’s easy to calculate using the calculator on the websites of companies specializing in the sale and installation of LPG equipment.

Today we have in mind solely the technical side of the question – not will give or gas equipment hassle in daily use car? Lanos in all its guises is good that allows to use cheap gas equipment II generation and the modern system of the IV generation – with the injection gas into the reservoir through a separate nozzle. The second option provides better efficiency and less troublesome to maintain, therefore, about the legacy system, we will not speak.

So, pluses and minus LPG IV generation cars Lanos.


1. The dressing is cheaper. When good vehicle and a properly configured power systems, the difference in fuel costs to aim for 50%. For “Lanos”, with its pretty greedy the motor (I mean first of all the basic 1.5 liter) this important fact.

2. With LPG you get a greater autonomy of movement – a 48-liter fuel tank, you get another 35-50 litre tank for liquefied propane. That is, the reserve is increased by 70-100%.

3. The reliability of the vehicle. LPG is the second power supply system with its own tank, pipelines, injectors and electronic control unit. So if your car is no longer new, gas and diesel power system can be considered independent and redundant to each other. If you fail one, you can switch to the second and complete the trip.
