In Hungary you can opt for gas, for which Hungary has a significant infrastructure, at least for LPG. This is an acronym for liquefied petroleum gas, a compound similar to the propane-butane known from household cylinders, stored in liquefied form.
Among the advantages are cleaner running: 80 per cent less nitrogen monoxide and 10-15 per cent less carbon dioxide come out of the exhaust of an LPG engine than a petrol engine, and the oil change cycle and catalyst life are increased.
Since the new Fire Safety Order of the Hungarian Ministry of the Interior came into force, the use of gas-powered cars in underground garages is finally not prohibited if a safety valve is installed in the system, bringing it into line with European regulations. Of course, the biggest advantage of the system is that autogas is cheaper per litre than petrol, which means a quick return on investment even with additional consumption.
Although Hungary has a long tradition of automotive LPG use, doubts about its future in the country are significant because of the government's policy of tax increases. It is no less certain that Hungary has decidedly incorporated to the production of Bio-LPG which could mean an important increase in the consumption of this fuel
In Hungary there are currently 574 filling stations offering LPG for sale to the public, a network that ensures a trouble-free supply anywhere in the country.
