Why Convert to LPG?
It’s Greener, It’s Cleaner but best of all it’s Cheaper!
With both petrol and diesel prices well above £1 per litre, there has never been a better time to convert your car or van to run on LPG.
By adding a dual fuel Autogas system you’ll not only be doing your bit for the environment, you’ll be reducing your fuel costs by around half.
By using the latest multipoint sequential gas injection systems, the only way you’ll know you’re running on gas is by the size of your fuel bill.
LPG, or Autogas as it is often referred to, is the most popular solution to not only reducing your vehicle running costs by up to 50% BUT it has up to 20% less CO2 than petrol and has 120 times less harmful particulates than diesel.
Oxford Autogas has been a part of Tiddington Garage for the last 8 years and has been converting vehicles to run on gas for over 10 years now. Although there has been a large shift towards electric in recent years, we are still converting cars across to LPG which is an immediate fix as far as emissions and fuel costs are concerned. We also have refuelling facilities on site.

LPG – the greener and cleaner fuel
If you are conscientious about the environment and green issues, then converting and running your car on LPG might be for you. It is better for the environment than running a car on petrol or diesel. Converting your car to LPG will also reduce your carbon footprint and help minimise your personal contribution to global warming.
Extensive independent tests have shown that running a car on LPG results in a substantial 20% reduction in CO2- carbon dioxide emissions. LPG autogas burns cleaner than either petrol or diesel, and particulates emissions are up to 99% less per mile than those from diesel engines, so we can all breathe a little easier.
Nitrous oxide fumes that contribute to the smog found in large cities, are also cut by a minimum of 50% compared to petrol engines, after converting to LPG or a massive 95% reduction compared to diesel engines.
Compared to petrol and diesel, LPG is the most environmentally friendly fuel
LPG has a low carbon content and that should help reduce your carbon footprint.
LPG produces far fewer harmful emissions that impact on local air quality.
Engine noise is significantly lower than corresponding petrol and diesel engines
Converting a car to LPG saves you money
LPG is better for the environment and switching to LPG Autogas, you can make large savings and contribute to a greener and cleaner environment for all.
Save Money with an LPG Conversion
Running an LPG car can help you save huge amounts on your fuel costs!
Although all fuels continue to rise in price, the margin between LPG and petrol remains the same. On average you will save around 50p a litre although this can be as high as 70p. This can equal huge savings on your fuel bill. The main reason LPG is so much cheaper than either petrol or diesel, is because fuel duty levied by the government is much lower than that on petrol and diesel.This is because of the environmental benefits of using LPG and there is currently a five year rolling agreement not to increase the duty on LPG by anymore than 1p compared with petrol.
After converting to LPG, Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) for cars registered after 2001 is also less, add to this the savings in maintenance from reduced engine wear, and the savings really do start to mount up. Converting your vehicle to run on LPG is a sure fire way to save money. LPG fuel is slightly less calorific than petrol, so 1 litre of LPG is equivalent to about 820ml of petrol. So even though a litre of LPG will take you and your car just over 80% the distance of the same journey using petrol, the savings on even that one journey can be substantial.
For an average user the cost of converting to LPG will be paid off within the first year, and for drivers covering lots of miles or with petrol hungry engines, the savings are larger and made quicker.
