These figures were provided by the general director of the Spanish Association of Operators of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (AOGLP, as in its Spanish acronym) Jose Luis Blanco, during his participation at the Oil Industry Technical Conferences. “Increasingly, manufacturers are offering more models of LPG-powered vehicles, while the network of conversion workshops is getting stronger, so that a driver who wants to start using autogas has multiple options,” he said.
Currently, consumers have more than 50 models of new LPG vehicles and have the possibility to convert their vehicles if they are enrolled after 2001, so the fleet running on this fuel has been increasing significantly in the last years and will continue the same path in the next years.
Furthermore, this fuel supports diversification and growth strategies of refueling stations and involves a greater supply. “Today there is already a basic network of over 440 filling stations offering autogas, allowing drivers to cross Spain from north to south only using this fuel,” Blanco said.
The AOGLP explained in a press release that autogas is the ideal fuel to move economically and sustainably. It is the most widely used alternative fuel in the world, with more than 25 million vehicles, including 13 million in Europe and 40,000 in Spain, reported Europa Press.
