Autogas Incentive Policies
A Global Autogas Industry Network (Gain) Publication

Autogas - LP Gas used as a transport fuel - is by far the most widely used and accepted alternative automotive fuel in use in the world today. Global consumption of autogas reached an estimated 17.1 million tonnes in 2004, and is increasing rapidly. Today, there are over 10 million autogas vehicles in use around the world. Yet autogas use is still concentrated in a small number of countries: five countries - Korea, Japan, Poland, Turkey and Australia - together account for more than half of global autogas consumption. The twenty countries surveyed in this report account for 94%.

The share of autogas in total automotive-fuel consumption also varies widely among those countries, ranging from a mere 0.1% in the United States to 16% in Poland. The only countries other than Poland where autogas accounts for more than 10% of the automotive-fuel market are Korea, Bulgaria, Turkey and Lithuania. The enormous disparity in the success of autogas in competing against the conventional automotive fuels, gasoline and diesel, is largely because of differences in government incentive policies.
