Abstract: Advanced Lightweight Engineering has developed a full composite LPG container in close conjunction with the TU Delft. The container is suited for automotive use and has a so-called "UFO" shape, which enables the container to be placed in the spare wheel compartment. The weight reduction is about 80% compared to a steel LPG container which results in better car handling, lower fuel consumption, lower road taxes (in the Netherlands) and easier installation. The container offers a volume of 56 litres in combination with a total weight of only eight kilograms and a cost price close to a steel container.
