About propane autogas:

  • Autogas ignites at 920 to 1020 degrees Fahrenheit, compared to 495 to 535 degrees for gasoline, meaning there is a decreased possibility that autogas will accidentally ignite
  • Autogas only burns at a small fuel-to-air ratio, and it dissipates quickly into the open atmosphere, making ignition less likely
  • Autogas is nontoxic, nonpoisonous and insoluble in water, unlike gasoline, diesel, methanol and ethanol

About autogas tanks:

  • Autogas vehicle tanks are 20 times more puncture resistant than gasoline tanks and can withstand four times the pressure when compared to conventional gasoline vehicle tanks
  • Autogas tanks are tested to four times their standard operating pressure
  • Properly installed autogas vehicle tanks actually help reinforce the vehicle′s structure
  • Autogas vehicle tanks are constructed from carbon steel under code developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers
