Australian Standards AS1425 guarantees safety standards that even exceed those of petrol and diesel engines. Tanks and systems used with LPG are tested at a pressure of 30 bar even though the operating pressure oscillates between 3 and 6 bar. The cylinders must be equipped with a safety device that allows the gradual outlet of fuel to eliminate the risk of explosion.
In fact, the results of crash and fire tests show that in most cases the LPG tank is safer than the petrol tank. Further, to give LPG the space to expand, the tank cannot be filled above 80 per cent of its capacity.
Minimal performance differences.
Very slight increase in the specific consumption compared to petrol (it can change from 10% to 20% according to the engine specifications).
With modern injection systems power loss has virtually become a thing of the past.
