The World LPG Forum has begun!
The World LPG Forum, now in its 29th edition, is a traveling event. It never occurs in the same city twice and even not on the same continent twice in a row. And since there are powerful regional LPG associations around the planet, the forum always coincides with local events. This year it runs along the 2016 AEGPL (European LPG Association) Congress, but that's hardly the only place to be in the Firenze Fiera Congress and Exhibition Centre other than the forum itself – the organisers made sure delegates would be kept busy with LPG-related matters even between conference sessions.
One of the most interesting additions is the display of various autogas-powered cars. Some of them are factory-converted, others prove LPG valour in motorsport events, others still are examples of applying autogas in ways many would never expect. So what cars are going to be there? The exhibition includes the following:
- a Fiat 500;
- a Dacia Duster;
- an Opel Mokka;
- an Opel Karl – the latest addition to the automaker's broad range of autogas-powered cars;
- the very Ford Fiesta R5 featuring BRC's LDI direct liquid state autogas injection system that Giandomenico Basso and Lorenzo Granai drove to win the Italian Rally Championship just a few weeks ago;
- a Toyota Prius hybrid, whose savings-generating and emissions-cutting potential has been boosted by an LPG conversion.
Of course, an exhibition of cars running on autogas is by no means the main reason to visit the World LPG Forum, but if you're there, be sure not to miss it. And if you're not there, be sure not to miss our updates and post-event recapitulations. There's no greater celebration of the LPG sector than this one!
