In 1954, Landi Renzo began designing and building natural gas and LPG automotive conversion systems for vehicles in many countries around the world. Since its foundation, Landi Renzo has become a leader and one of the world’s most important companies in the sector. In fact, it operates in five continents with various subsidiaries, offices, authorised dealers and service centres. The fact that it has sold more than 5 million systems is proof of the high technological con- tent and quality of all Landi Renzo products. With a wide assortment of products, and a flexible approach that’s always geared to satisfy customer needs, Landi Renzo designs and supplies “turnkey products”: in addition to producing LPG and natural gas automotive systems, the company also optimises the installation of such systems, along with engine service life, vehicle performances and exhaust gas emissions. It als customis complete systems and parts (pressure converters ,solenoid valves and electronic control systems) based on avehicle’sspecific characteristics. Landi Renzo ’s philosophy is based on specific key concepts: Energy, Eco-compatibility, Technology and Quality. Convinced that efficiency and safety can be constantly improved, and to further reduce the pollutants in LPG and natural gas automotive fuel supply systems, Landi Renzo created a Research and Development Centre. This Centre, a unique installation in the sector, generates eco-friendly conversion systems because it constantly meets the technologi- cal challenge to obtain continuous improvements. Quality is the end result of advanced technology, commitment and attention to customer needs. The quality of life and the quality certified by international organisations, starting with ISO 9001 in 1996 and ending with the prestigious ISO/TS 16949 certification that Landi Renzo received in 2001, beating out all other companies in the sector.
What is LPG?
A blend of propane and butane, liquified petroleum gas (LPG) is produced either as a
by-product of oil-refining, or from natural gas (methane) fields. As an alternative fuel
it is most suited to use in cars and light vans, rather than heavy vehicles.
What are the environmental benefits of using an LPG vehicle?
Performance-wise, LPG vehicles drive just like petrol vehicles and are subject to the same
maintenance schedules. It is generally accepted that LPG gives around a 10 per cent carbon
dioxide reduction in comparison to petrol.
In road fuel use it is anything from 100% propane to 100% butane, but is generally a mix
of both to help with starting. Held under light pressure (15psi) which makes it a liquid.
