Benefits of Autogas

You will find loads of reasons why Autogas is so great, but here are the cold, hard facts about what Autogas can do for you:

It saves you money

On average, buying Autogas at the pump will see immediate savings in your pocket with the average price per litre around half that of petrol or diesel. On driving you will save around 40 per cent in fuel costs on average – this is just to take into account your mpg (miles per gallon) – but overall, you will be quids in just by switching your car to run on Autogas.

And don’t worry – we haven’t forgotten to take into consideration the cost for converting your car. You could start to reap the rewards and see a return on your investment within the first year, depending on your mileage. To find out how quickly you can cover the costs of an average conversion, see our fuel savings calculator.

It’s better for the environment

As one of the cleanest fuels available, Autogas even has a low environmental impact in production due to LPG (Liquified Petroleum Gas) being a by-product of natural gas extraction and crude oil refining.

  • CO2 emissions of Autogas are up to 10 per cent lower than petrol
  • NOx emissions (one of the main contributors to smog) from Autogas are up to 80 per cent lower than diesel
  • There are up to 98 per cent fewer harmful particulates in the emissions from Autogas than in other fuels

Quite impressive figures – all of which have been found during testing in 2014 (Atlantic Consulting Report)

It’s easy to run

Converting your car to run on Autogas is easy and living with it is too. Your car will still have its petrol tank as well as the Autogas tank, and you can switch seamlessly between the two – that means you always have your petrol tank as a reserve if you ever need it.

You are not alonepeople love lpg

Thousands of people in the UK already successfully run their cars on Autogas, and 30 million vehicles run on it around the whole world, meaning it is the third most popular automotive fuel available.

Autogas is supplied by a brand you can trust

There are around 1,400 places to fill up with LPG around the UK. Autogas can be found on one in every four Shell stations, meaning you can rely on premium quality and care. To find your nearest Autogas filling point, check out our site locator here.

You can collect Shell Drivers’ Club points

You can become a member of the Shell Drivers’ Club and collect points for every litre of Autogas you fill up – your Shell Drivers’ Club points can be converted into rewards such as fuel vouchers, Waitrose vouchers, Avios points, gift cards or donations.
