Your statement regarding LPG is impossible to find anywhere in Austria and AUTO GAS is NOT LPG which can be found all over Austria are, may I say, is contradictory.
Auto gas IS LPG, even in the UK we refer to LPG as auto gas on a forecourt.
It is the same stuff that you can cook your sausages on for breakfast if you live in a house that is not connected to the main gas supply, you can also run your central heating on it and put it in your car to make it go brrruuumm.
Next time you pass through Austria and you are short on LPG ,pop in to the Auto gas site Im sure they will be glad to serve.
Well I don’t speak German, and I have driven through Germany an Austria, in Austria I looked for LPG as that is what I have in my car; and when I asked.
Everyone said: Auto gas, I went to the 5 petrol stations that Austrian people who spoke to me in English and said Auto gas, sent me to, and did NOT at all find LPG, what I did find was Erdgas.
Which is natural gas used in cars in Austria and Germany, I don’t know if it is used anywhere else.
However when I asked even in the petrol station, and they did not seem to speak English in the stations, I said LPG, and everyone said Autogas, and then indicated that I can not use it. Actually I read a sign on one of the pumps only looked on one, and it says “this is not LPG”.
Now there could be some difference with written and spoken German, but as I neither write or speak, I don’t know.
What I do know if that I drove from the boarder with Hungary to Wein and then to Linz looking for LPG.
Everyone said Auto gas and there is none, I gave up after that, as I was not only stopping on the motorway and also going into evey town that I passed to find LPG, and did not.
One woman said that you can only get LPG on the motorways, however I drove past every station and checked and looked in everyone that had Erd gas or anything else gas related, but there was no LPG.
I therefore conclude, that LPG and Auto gas, (spoken) are not the same thing and I am 99% certain you can’t get it in Austria.
In Germany it is available in almost every petrol station and also Erd gas, is there.
The next time you go to Austria please do fill up with Erd gas, and see what happens.
I have just found this, and as you will see it is written autogas

I have not read this site, but as they say in English LPG / Autogas and Erdgas, I guess this info will be good.
