Is it safe to drive on LPG?

Contrary to common belief, LPG is not only the cheapest fuel but also the safest. Indeed:


1. Filling is done in an airtight manner unlike other fuels that allow vapour to pass through, which is the real reason for most accidents at the pump.

2. The tank is made of a metal several millimeters thick, unlike the current gasoline tanks which are plastic.

3· LPG by definition being a gas burns better than gasoline and diesel.

4· A system prevents the filling of a tank to more than 80 percent, because a slight relaxation can be generated by an increase in temperature, so you can roll and refuel without fear even during hot days.

5· Because LPG is odourless, a substance is added to prevent leakage

6· Tank stiffness has already been tested many times in different tests and these show that LPG tanks are much more resistant in case of shock than others.

7 · Tanks are tested every 6 or 10 years to ensure they are still strong enough.

8· During the technical inspection, your entire installation is screened by experts who will report any defects in your installation.

LPG installation on Lada Niva

At the Lada Niva, a tank can be mounted at the bottom, provided that the exhaust is moved. A tank is possible of 60 liters.

No road tax and no registration with CNG (Flanders)

Lada Niva is nowadays often converted to CNG. You make an important saving because you do not pay a registration tax (until the end of 2020).

Land Rover CNG

New Land Rover Discovery now also available with CNG

New Land Rover Discovery is now available with CNG (or natural gas). The CNG installation was developed at Van Meenen in Eeklo.

The CNG tanks are mounted at the bottom of the car, so you don’t lose a seat in the suitcase. CNG you can easily fill behind the petrol valve.
