    Default Car-LPG

    Hi Folks

    I want to know that in LPG version, which is the best car(second hand)? I am going for brands like Wagon R because the maintenance cost is less( Cost per kg -23 while petrol costs nearly double)... Can you name couple of more brands with the prices... I stay in Mumbai..

    If your city has the option for CNG, it would be a much better choice given that CNG is comparitively safer than LPG and also operational cost is 1/3rd of petrol.

    Vehicle safety is a major concern for all drivers and so before deciding to convert their cars to run on LPG drivers have to ask themselves just how safe are LPG cars.

    The answer is that LPG is extremely safe and has a very good safety record in cars. One of the main reasons for LPG cars good safety record is the construction of the LPG fuel tank which is more robust than petrol fuel tanks making it less likely to be damaged. Another reason is the LPG quick fuel cut off system, which uses 3 fuel safety cut off solenoids which shut off the LPG system whenever the car is not running or if the car is involved in an accident the LPG system will automatically cut off the flow of gas on impact in fraction of a second.

    In many LPG websites consumer safety concerns are a main point of interest and they all try to put their consumers at ease by answering typical questions related to the safety of LPG within cars i.e. (www.fuleture.com) answers the following questions related to safety.

    Is LPG safe?
    Yes LPG is perfectly safe. In fact, the LPG tank in your car, van or taxi is actually tougher and safer than a traditional petrol tank

    What happens if I’m involved in an accident?
    The LPG tank will automatically shut off the gas supply – keeping you safe

    Is it safe to have petrol and LPG tanks in the same car?
    Yes – LPG cars are very safe. Your LPG tank has gone through a huge amount of tough testing – including pressure-testing and strength-testing. LPG tanks shut down the gas supply if you have an accident.

    Accidents are only due to drivers who have installed the kit themselves & illegally.
