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.

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.

Hmm, I wonder if it's possible to get hold of some cheap butane...
