Despite this, fuel consumption isn't great but at least the fuel is "greener" and cheaper than regular gasoline. I hope to get leaner and greener consumption here with everyone.
In my country LPG is forbidden as a vehicles fuel, only used in forklifts and some tractors, but CNG is widely used in light-duty vehicles. It's also safer than LPG not just due to the stronger hardware but also because it doesn't displace oxygen as much as LPG in case of a leak in a closed environment. BTW are LPG-powered cars still not allowed in underground parking lots in Portugal?
