Propane Conversions in Abbotsford, BC
What is Propane?
Propane, which is also known as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), is an alternative fuel product that is clean-burning and produced domestically. Helping to avoid harming Mother Nature is only one of its major benefits, and propane increases energy security and provides performance benefits for your vehicle. Using propane is the only way to diversify American transportation fuel and ensure that your vehicle is not dependent on foreign oil. Using propane ensures that your vehicle and your wallet are not vulnerable to supply disruptions as most of the supply is produced right here in North America.
Why Convert to Propane?
Propane helps to ensure your vehicle is more fuel efficient, which counts for a lot considering the rising price of gas. On average propane costs significantly less than gas or diesel and offers a similar driving range and increased horsepower. By having a much lower BTU rating than gasoline, propane converted vehicles are able to obtain better fuel economy ratings than the average gas or diesel vehicle.
One of the biggest attractions of propane conversions is the reduction of your vehicle maintenance costs. Being a clean-burning fuel, propane’s high octane and low carbon combination results in less contamination to your vehicle’s engine. Propane burning vehicles result in a longer engine life expectancy and do not have issues associated with cold start as a result of liquid fuels.
Environment and Health Benefits
There is no way to reverse the effects of greenhouse gases, but individually we can all reduce our carbon footprints and make our environment just a little bit greener. By converting your vehicle to propane, not only will you save more money on fuel, but it is estimated your carbon footprint will be reduced by 27% in the first year alone. Propane is nontoxic and non-poisonous so vehicles burning this clean fuel will have reduced levels of harmful air pollutants and greenhouse gases.
