- Three different vehicles to showcase advantages of LPG;
- London black cab makes debut at Cenex low carbon vehicle event;
- Demonstrations set at Millbrook testing facility for 9 and 10 September.
THREE very different types of vehicles will be used by Autogas to illustrate the business advantages of switching to LPG fuel.
The UK leading supplier of LPG be putting the three vehicles through their paces at the Cenex low carbon vehicle event, taking place at Millbrook on 9 and 10 September.
For the smaller company car user, an LPG-converted Ford Focus will show the potentially cost and emissions saving combination of a modern direct injection, turbocharged petrol engine and the newest generation of autogas LPG systems.
At the same time van operators will be shown a LPG powered Fiat Doblo van featuring new technology making it Euro 6 compliant, while an LPG powered black taxi, being shown for the first time at the event, will demonstrate the fuel’s advantages for the urban cab operator.
Linda Gomersall, general manager of Autogas, said: “We’re delighted to once again be taking part in the Cenex LCV event, and look forward to introducing visitors to the fantastic variety of autogas LPG powered vehicles we have on display.
“We’re inviting fleet operators and drivers to come and chat with us to see not only how much they could save on fuel costs but also how running vehicles on LPG is a simple and effective way of helping to tackle the growing issue of air pollution in our towns and cities.”
Autogas claims drivers switching to LPG could save up to 40% on fuel costs and those company car drivers racking up high annual mileage, could save much more. On top of this LPG is significantly cleaner than diesel in urban environments with NOx emissions from LPG up to 80% lower than diesel.
