EghtesadOnline: So long as cars can run on compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) should be used for more useful purposes, head of the Iran CNG Association said.
EghtesadOnline: After gasoline was rationed last November and the price of non-subsidized fuel doubled, some motorists turned to using other types of fuels for their cars such as compressed natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas. They converted their car engines to CNG hybrid or to LPG.
EghtesadOnline: Despite the fact that liquefied petroleum gas is good for auto engines, Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh says so long as cars can run on compressed natural gas, LPG should be used for other purposes.
EghtesadOnline: Demand for auto fuel system conversions to LPG and CNG hybrids has been growing in Iran ever since November 2019, when the government rationed and tripled the price of fuel overnight.
EghtesadOnline :Iranian LPG shipments to China were on track in November.
