Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG)

Liquefied petroleum gas is already widely used as a vehicle fuel in the US, Canada, the Netherlands, Japan and elsewhere. In Japan, 260,000 taxis, 94% of the total number of taxis, use LPG as their fuel. As a fuel for spark-ignition engines, it has many of the same advantages as natural gas, with the additional advantage of being easier to carry aboard the vehicle.
