What is Autogas?
Autogas is Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) when used as a vehicle fuel and is widely used as a "green" fuel, as its use reduces CO2 exhaust emissions by around 15%. Autogas is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, just behind gasoline and diesel, and, as consumers, we need to know about this clean-burning, cost-effective and domestically produced autogas.
Change the Fuel, Not the Vehicle
The ICOM JTG II aftermarket conversion systems are competitively priced EPA-certified systems. Wolff Specialties is a Certified ICOM installer and the Pacific Northwest's ICOM Dealer and Conversion Center that can help convert your existing vehicles to run on clean, American-made alternative fuels. We specialize in aftermarket EPA-certified conversion systems that drastically lower costs, reduce emissions and lower our national dependency on foreign oil.
Furthermore, a quality LPG conversion system would allow you to save between 40-60% of your vehicle fuel costs and those costs will be recouped within 20,000-25,000 miles. So if you want to dramatically reduce your motoring expenses, say "by half", you need to change only one thing, the fuel.
You will enjoy huge savings each year and to compliment that savings, your vehicle will have that extra added benefit of Bi-Fuel function, thus allowing you to cover a greater range with flexibility and give you peace of mind at the same time. To further sweeten the pot, the systems have exceptional warranties, systems transfer-ability and exceptional customer service and technology support.
A Safe Fuel
Propane has been used as a motor fuel for more than 80 years and is the third most widely used fuel, only behind gasoline and diesel. Many U.S. fleets have successfully operated on propane for more than 20 years - fleets such as Yellow Cab in Las Vegas, Schwan's Foods Home Delivery Service, Portland (Oregon) School District, DS Waters, and others. These companies recognize that the benefits of operating on propane include great performance, safety, clean emissions, green image and tremendous cost savings.
Propane has a narrower flammability range than gasoline. The ignition point for propane is 940 degrees compared to 430 degrees for gasoline. Propane (also known as Autogas) is the driving force for changes in fuel choices among vehicle fleets - changes from gasoline to autogas. When autogas is used, it is possible to eliminate thousands of tons of harmful emissions, create a green economy and help reduce our nation's dependence on foreign oil. As our country becomes a more unified voice for the autogas market, we can work toward a clean break from foreign oil dependency.
Auto Gas Tanks
- Autogas vehicle tanks are constructed from carbon steel under code development by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers - ASME
- ASME tanks are tested to four times the normal operating pressure.
- ASME tanks are 20 times more puncture resistant than gasoline or diesel tanks
- Propane tanks do not need to be removed and re-inspected as do other types of alternative fuel tanks.
- ASME Toroidal Tanks - These innovative tank designs offers a number of benefits including fitting in the space reserved for the spare tire and increased safety with the valves protected in the central cavity of the tank.
