    Propane Autogas Vehicles; Liquefied Petroleum Gas Vehicle Availability, LPG Refueling Infrastructure, Engine Technology, and Fuel System Components: Market Analysis and Forecasts

    Q3 2012 (Pike Research/Navigant)

    “Autogas...[is the common term] for liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) used as an automotive transport fuel…[It is] approximately 9% of the global consumption of LPG…

    “…While LPG is relatively clean-burning, easy to store and transport, has high energy content, and is widely available in many countries, supplies of natural gas have become much more abundant over the last few years as new extraction process have been developed, and natural gas now challenges autogas as an alternative vehicle fuel to gasoline and diesel.”

    “…[T]he penetration for use [of autogas] as a vehicle fuel varies widely around the world. Few countries have created a refueling infrastructure to rival that for gasoline/diesel, but in most places batch delivery is well established, making it an ideal fuel for short range fleet operations if the cost per gallon is kept low…

    “Some OEMs offer factory installation of autogas and dual-fuel systems, but only in countries where the market is mature and volumes have been steady for some years. Most conversions are done in the aftermarket. Pike Research anticipates that by 2020 there will be more than 23 million autogas vehicles operating on roads worldwide.”
