Travelling to Europe in an LPG Car

Going to Europe over the summer for a holiday is a popular trip for many people and their families. However, if you have an LPG car there are a few tips and helpful hints you should know.

Firstly, LPG vehicles are not permitted in the Eurotunnel. This is not a safety issue; LPG cars have been proven safe to travel in the tunnel by independent testing. However when the tunnel was built, there were not enough LPG vehicles on the roads in Britain to deem safety testing cost effective. Ferries allow LPG vehicle to cross the channel. Terms and conditions do apply, including turning LPG tank off whilst on board and presently your LPGA Approved Certificate when boarding. Adhere to these two requests and you can cross the channel to France no problems.

You have now arrived in Europe with your LPG car; you need to fill up with more gas. Europe has a huge LPG supply; however LPG is more commonly known as Autogas or GPL. Most fuel stations supply LPG and road signs for stations are marked “+GPL” if the station supplies LPG. Similar to taking a kettle or travel iron with you to Europe, you may find that you need an LPG adapter to refuel your car. There are three different types of adapter; for more details on travelling to Europe with an LPG car, issues such as station locations, fuel prices and explanation of adapters, visit http://www.fuelture.com/magazine.
