In Cuba the use of liquefied gas as an automotive fuel is not allowed, mainly due to the political situation that keeps Cuba under a very important embargo and produces occasional shortages
However, there are projects of the Government of Cuba to promote the use of liquefied gas in cars and automotive vehicles in general.
In Latin America, its use is widespread in Mexico, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Paraguay and Cuba, 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.
