Bkk Taxis - Lpg Or Gasoline?

Recommended Posts

What's with the huge propane tanks in the back of the BKK taxis? I see gas caps on the sides of these things as well so are they propane powered or gas powered or both? Is there a law here requiring the propane?

I know some honda civics use liquified natural gas.It's cheaper and cleaner than gasoline

BKK taxis have been required to run on gas (not gasoline) since at least the late 90's. Originally it was liquefied petroleum (LP) gas, a.k.a. "cooking gas" in Thailand. More recently, they have been using natural gas (a.k.a. Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV). Since these vehicles are converted after manufacture, you are still seeing the stock gasoline filler pipe remaining.

Many trucks and busses have also been converted to natural gas. You also see racks of bottle tanks behind the cabs on many trucks, and in the cargo holds on busses.
