Competitiveness of Autogas against other fuels
Unsurprisingly, the low price of Autogas vis-à-vis gasoline results in a very low break-even distance – just 22 000 km for a converted vehicle or little more than one year of driving for a private motorist, assuming a typical conversion cost of 18 000 hryvnia (about $670) (Figure B23.2). An OEM vehicle breaks even at 28 000 km assuming a price premium of 22 500 hryvnia ($830). Autogas is always more competitive with diesel regardless of distance as per-km fuel costs are lower and the price premium for a diesel vehicle is generally higher. This analysis demonstrates very clearly why Autogas demand is rising so strongly in Ukraine.
