Yes, you read correctly, your eyes are not deceiving you, Diesel engines converted to run on LPG Propane Gas.
Alternative Fuel Company is the first and the only LPG diesel blend gas converting workshop in Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and one of handful in the UK that has successfully researched, developed and installed Autogas Diesel injection systems on to trucks, vans, busses and stationary engines.
The graph below shows total fuel consumption is less in the vehicle that runs with an LPG mix, this is because as well as LPG having a higher calorific value (table 1) also had different flame propagation properties to diesel thus reducing the acceleration time and demand on power.
Assuming figures of diesel costing £1.30 per litre and LPG £0.70 per litre it will cost £54 to drive 60 miles on diesel and £42 to drive 60 miles with the LPG mix.
