Proposed standards for liquefied petroleum gas (Autogas)
About this paper
There are a number of pressures to mandate the fuel characteristics of LPG. The principal reason for ensuring consistency in LPG fuel quality is an environmental one - the need to ensure that the emission performance of LPG vehicles is not compromised by the quality of the fuel. The development of LPG fuel standards is also timely given the range of Government policies which promote alternative fuels.
This discussion paper is one of several discussion papers made available for public consultation to work towards setting national fuel quality standards. This discussion paper is now closed for public comment.
