LPG Conversion and Installation

Want more bang for your buck? Save on fuel expenses with an LPG conversion and installation.

Converting your car to LPG will save you money. LPG is typically at least 50 percent cheaper than other fuels, allowing you to recover the cost of an LPG installation in a relatively short time.

For example, if LPG averaged 65 cents per litre, while unleaded petrol averaged $1.25 per litre, an average Commodore or Falcon travelling 15,000 kilometres per year would save around $24 per week on fuel. This amounts to approximately $1250 per year.

A typical, straightforward LPG conversion can cost from $1,500 to $4,500 depending on the type of vehicle. Each vehicle will have different requirements, so drop into your local Repco Authorised Service for a tailored quote.

When you bring your vehicle in for an LPG conversion and installation there is little that needs to be changed in the way of the car’s current structure but the following will be added;

  • An LPG tank will be installed, either in the boot or under the car if there is enough clearance. 
  • A convertor will be installed to convert the liquid gas into vapour.
  • An air/fuel mixer or LGP injector will be installed to ensure the right mix of air and LPG is mixed to power the car.
  • A fuel lock will be fitted to stop fuel flow to the engine, once it is shut off.

LPG installation and conversion - everything you need to know and more

LPG stands for liquefied petroleum gas. LPG is a hydrocarbon fuel, its main components being propane and butane. LPG is liquified from its gaseous state using moderate temperature but when it converts back to gas it expands to 270 times its volume in liquid.

LPG is a naturally occurring by-product recovered during the extraction and refinement of natural gas and petroleum. 

LPG, also referred to as autogas, is a genuine alternative to petrol, which is much cheaper and with reduced emissions, also better for the environment.

At Repco Authorised Service, we can take care of all your LPG servicing needs too.
