Additional information

Estimated savings are not the result of a simple LPG-to-gasoline price ratio.

To make a savings estimate, the Simulator provides for the conversion cost payback over a set period of running time, as well as – given the appropriate option has been selected – the cost of petrol used for startups and warm-ups, LPG system servicing cost and higher MOT test cost.

Making estimates this way allows the Simulator to present the User with real-life savings, taking into consideration all the extra costs of driving an LPG-powered car, such as conversion cost and maintenance/servicing costs.

For correct estimates, zero is not allowed, except for "LPG increased consumption percentage" and "conversion cost" fields

Additional information

The Simulator provides for conversion cost and, if selected, startup
and warm-up petrol cost, LPG system servicing cost and MOT test cost
surcharge for all estimates.

* Approximate startup and warm-up petrol cost has been used for simulation. Depending on a particular car, LPG system type and brand, system settings and driving habits, estimated petrol cost may differ from real-life values.

Estimated monthly cost of startup and warm-up petrol - 10 EUR

** Approximate LPG system servicing cost has been used for simulation. Actual servicing cost and frequency may differ depending on LPG brand and service provider.

For sequential injection, calculation is based on cost of system and conversion:

  • 100 EUR for servicing every 10 000 km
  • 50 EUR or gaseous stage filter replacement every 10 000 km
  • 50 EUR for liquid stage filter replacement every 30 000 km
  • 300 EUR for repairs every 60 000 km

For a mixer-type LPG system, the following servicing cost has been adopted (parts included)::

  • 60 EUR for servicing every 10 000 km
  • 50 EUR for filters replacement every 30 000 km
  • 200 EUR for repairs every 60 000 km

*** Calculations account for additional MOT test cost of an LPG-powered vehicle. A brand new car without an LPG system needs a first MOT test after 3 years and the next one after another 2. Once the car is converted, the obligatory MOT test intervals are shortened to one year, regardless of the vehicle's age. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year and so is the entire vehicle. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year.

Calculation based on:

  • for years 2 and 3, full cost of MOT test has been accounted for - 162.00 EUR;
  • for year 4, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR;
  • for year 5, full cost of MOT test has been accounted for - 162.00 EUR;
  • for each consecutive year onwards, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR.

*** A 1-year-old car without an LPG system needs a first MOT test after 2 years and the next one after another 2. Once the car is converted, the obligatory MOT test intervals are shortened to one year, regardless of the vehicle's age. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year and so is the entire vehicle. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year.

  • for year 3, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR;
  • for year 4, full cost of MOT test has been accounted for - 162.00 EUR;
  • for each consecutive year onwards, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR.

*** A 2-year-old car without an LPG system needs a first MOT test after a year and the next one after another 2. Once the car is converted, the obligatory MOT test intervals are shortened to one year, regardless of the vehicle's age. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year and so is the entire vehicle. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year.

  • for year 3, full cost of MOT test has been accounted for - 162.00 EUR;
  • for each consecutive year onwards, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR.

*** A 3-year-old car without an LPG system has already had the first MOT test and needs another one after another 2 years. Once the car is converted, the obligatory MOT test intervals are shortened to one year, regardless of the vehicle's age. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year and so is the entire vehicle. This is because legal regulations for autogas systems require these systems to be tested every year.

Calculation based on:

  • for year 2, full cost of MOT test has been accounted for - 162.00 EUR;
  • for each consecutive year onwards, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR.

*** According to current regulations, autogas systems require annual MOT tests, which are conducted parallely to the entire vehicle's tests. Due to the additional scope of proceedings, an MOT test for an LPG-powered vehicle is more expensive than a regular one by 63 EUR.

Calculation based on:

  • for each consecutive year onwards, cost difference for car with/without LPG system has been accounted for - 63.00 EUR.
