In Norway we call it LPG. Gasoline station run by Shell call it Autogas in Norway.

In Sweden they call it Motorgas, but they also use LPG.


Note: English is not my first language. I use google translator.

LPG cars:
Chevrolet Suburban 5,7 - 1996
Mercedes E220 - 1996

Bear in mind that although LPG is always LPG, the composition of it is not the same across the EU. In the UK its 100% propane gas, on the continent its 60% Butane / 40% Propane in the summer and the other way around in the winter. All of them work in my car, but I get 6 imperial miles per gallon more out of the continental summer mix.
