Operation of a nationwide network auto gas stations as critical fuel supply infrastructure to promote the use of eco-friendly LPG vehicles
The Itochu Enex Group promotes the widespread use of low-pollution LPG vehicles, which take advantage of the product characteristics that have attracted attention to LP gas as a clean energy source. Enex Group companies throughout Japan operate a far-flung network of auto gas stations that have made the Itochu Enex Group the industry leader in market share.

Information on LPG Vehicles
Environment-friendly, highly convenient LPG vehicles
LPG vehicles have come into widespread use, principally as taxis, because of the low cost of fuel. The clean exhaust of LPG vehicles is another benefit that has attracted attention in recent years, and these vehicles are increasingly being adopted for use as clean energy vehicles to replace diesel engine vehicles (most notably trucks), especially in large urban areas.
LPG vehicles offer excellent greenhouse gas emissions performance equivalent to those of gasoline vehicles, have low NOx emissions, and emit no black soot or particulate matter. In addition, the exhaust contains no toxic substances (benzene or aldehyde).
Since LPG vehicles entail lower vibration, noise, and odor than diesel vehicles, they are appropriate for operation in residential areas. And newly developed engines offer improved power.
The number of auto gas stations has reached approximately 1,700 nationwide, and there are stations wherever taxis operate. These filling stations offer service for vehicles ranging from mini-vehicles to medium trucks and special purpose vehicles.
LPG vehicles compare favorably with diesel vehicles in terms of economy. LP gas costs less than diesel fuel, and since it is a clean fuel, the vehicle motor oil change cycle is lengthened and maintenance cost reduced.
A Well-Established Position as Environment-Friendly Vehicles
Certified Under the Act on Promoting Green Purchasing
LPG vehicles have been certified as green products under the Act on Promoting Green Purchasing since fiscal 2002 and have a well-established position as clean vehicles.
Qualification under the Automobile Green Tax System
LPG vehicles qualify for the Green Vehicle tax exemption for fuel-efficient cars that meet certain exhaust performance requirements (three-star rating) and for a reduction in the automobile acquisition tax.
