Autogas retrofitted

If you want to drive a gas car instead of a gasoline car, you have two options: Natural gas (CNG) or autogas (LPG).

“And where are the cars for liquid gas?”, some readers asked after our report on natural gas cars. After all, liquid LPG is also available at around 650 filling stations in Germany and costs about 50 cents less per liter than gasoline. However, only until 2009, while the tax incentive for natural gas is still fixed until 2020. There are currently 27,175 natural gas cars and 14,344 LPG cars registered.

In our February issue, we reported on new cars that are equipped with a gas system ex works. Unlike in Holland or France, LPG systems are for the most part only retrofitted in used cars in Germany. In the future, however, Chevrolet – cars of this brand were previously known to us under the name Daewoo – will also offer new LPG models. Selected authorized dealers rebuild the models Kalos, Lacetti, Nubira, Rezzo and Evanda at a price of 1 990 euros. The same warranty of three years with a maximum mileage of 100,000 kilometers applies to new LPG vehicles, whereas the statutory liability for material defects of two years applies to retrofitted used vehicles.
