LPG fed cars were good nowadays for budget conscious people. Every car with gas fuel can convert their cars to run on LPG, very economical. Some says it's worth the cost.
But these goodies about the LPg were now haunted by rumors I heard. Maybe we can think of it as a rumor, but these past months, when I rode taxicabs, and ask the drivers curiously about what they think about the LPG on cars, the responses were shocking.
One time, I rode a taxi Avanza, the I asked if that is LPG converted, the driver told me that he don't want to use LPG fed taxi for daily routine. It got detrimental effect on the drivers health, he mentioned. The actual proof, as he continues to share, is his peer driver, that after driving LPG taxi since 2005, is now very ill of a pulmonary disease, and the doctor says that is an effect of driving LPG taxi.
After just 3 days, I have interviewed another taxi driver whose choosing a gas- fed car than LPG-fed car due to this same reason. He told me that his last check- up reveals some inflammation on air passage, even if he's not into smoking thing. He told me that he stays most of the tyime inside his taxi and the only break he opt were toilets, meals, repairs, and car wash.
The LPG converters say that their convertion kits were totally safe. And it is indeed very safe, for the prevention of fire.
But the effect is when the fumes circulate in the combustion system, and then the aircon could sip it's fumes and transport it inside the car cabin. Which in turn can be inhalated by our very precious lungs and pulmonary system.
Remember that LPG is colorless and odorless, and it's only upon the company discretion to add fumes to it in able to detect the presence of LPG on our air.
