In Ghana, there is a general persistent dissatisfaction with
the quality of service in the crude oil or fuel sector.
However, most Ghanaian taxi drivers convert petrol car to
liquefied petroleum gas popularly know as “LPG OR LP GAS”.  The story is not different in the Brong
Ahafo’s capital city Sunyani. Majority of Taxi drivers who plies their trade in
Sunyani prefers to use LP gas.
To ascertain what the main reason is, News Hunter Magazine
gathered from the streets of Sunyani as to why almost 99% of drivers in Sunyani
use LP gas.
Mr Ampofo, a taxi driver who uses LPG speaking in an
interview with News Hunter Magazine divulged why he preferred LPG car to petrol
According to him, petrol price is soar; therefore it’s time
to consider ways in which he can cut his motoring cost. He explained that, LPG
cars consume lesser as compared to petrol car, and this is one of the reasons
people convert petrol car to LPG car.
Furthermore, Mr Kojo Banahene who has had experience on both
LPG and petrol car also emphasized on why LPG is on the safer side.
He said, his LPG car has run faultlessly since he converted
it. He continued that, he thinks the LPG car users have also done their bit for
the environment because liquefied petroleum gas is a much cleaner burning fuel.
What’s more, you will also have cleaner running engine that
could last longer than if it were running purely on petrol.
LPG is the third most widely used motor fuel in the world.
2013 estimates are that over 24.9 million vehicles are fuelled by propane gas
worldwide. Over 25 million tones (over 9 million us gallons) are used annually
as a vehicle fuel.
In theory, it sounds like LPG is the ideal solution to
rising fuel cost.
