AutoGas (LPG) is a clean, high octane, abundant and eco-friendly fuel. It is a mixture of petroleum gases like propane and butane.
The use of LPG as an automotive fuel has become legal in India with effect from April 24, 2000, albeit within the prescribed safety terms and conditions. Hitherto, the thousands of LPG vehicles running in various cities have been doing so illegally by using domestic LPG cylinders, a very unsafe practice. Using domestic LPG cylinders in automobiles is still illegal.
The fuel is marketed by Aditya Fuels Ltd under the brand name ‘Aditya AutoGas’
