Self Study Program 73 – LPG system in Skoda vehicles

VAG SSP 73. For the first time in the history of the Skoda vehicles, the customer is offered a liquefied petroleum gas powered vehicle directly from the factory. Liquefied petroleum gas is also known as liquid gas or LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas).

LPG has already been used for decades and is currently the world’s most widely used alternative fuel. It is a clean-burning fuel, therefore making it one of the most modern energy carriers. In many big cities more and more vehicles run on LPG, which is largely due to the rising popularity of this fuel.

LPG consists of a mixture of propane, butane and additives. Compared to other fuels, the use of LPG results in significantly lower exhaust emissions. Overall, the emissions produced by liquefied LPG vehicles are among the lowest emissions achieved at present by internal combustion engines. The LPG fuel is virtually sulphur-free and the combustion takes place with almost no soot emissions. Pollutants such as carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbon (HC), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and other exhaust gas components, which pose adverse health and environmental risks, are significantly reduced.
