But today we want to share with you the interesting alternative proposed by the AOGLP and which is the present, as it has gained a lot of presence in the sector: we are referring to liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) or autogas.

This is an alternative fuel based on propane and butane gas obtained by extracting and refining petroleum. In other words, autogas is the result of using the surplus gases that result from the distillation of gasoline and diesel from the crude oil that arrives at the refinery.    In addition, this ecological origin is environmentally friendly as it is much cleaner since it does not contain lead or sulfur.

For buried tanks that are to be extracted, caution should be exercised and high heat sources should not be applied when cutting, scrapping or excavating due to the risk of generating potentially explosive or flammable hydrocarbon vapors or pockets.
