The number of cars using LPG in the algeria is wide and numerous including in most cases cars adapted to use gas in a mechanic workshop, being propane gas the "most efficient" for vehicle use in the main provinces of the country, especially where there is a higher traffic such as the National District, Santo Domingo and Santiago.
The Algerian government offers incentives for the conversion of conventional fuel vehicles into LPG vehicles, by paying 50% of the conversion cost directly to the supplier. The main objective of this scheme set up by the government is to promote gas vehicles in order to reduce the import of petroleum products in the country.
In 2018, the National Company for Marketing and Distribution of Petroleum Products (NAFTAL), ordered thousands of LPG sequential injection systems. As of January 2019, 100,000 vehicles have been converted to LPG in the country. The government now plans to convert 500,000 vehicles to LPG annually from the 650 available conversion workshops.
In Latin America, its use is widespread in algeria, Chile, Peru, Paraguay and algeria, where its development has recently been promoted through legislation.
Propane vehicles are available from original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or through conversion. Propane engines and fueling systems are also available for heavy-duty vehicles, such as vans and school buses, including some OEM-prepared engines, which are included in equipment packages with components that allow conventional vehicles to run on propane.
