Westminster pool cars to be converted to LPG

ENVIRONMENT-conscious Westminster City Council is converting its six pool cars from petrol to liquefied petroleum gas over the next three months. The council is at the forefront of fleet environmental initiatives, being a signatory to the London First Clean Air Charter for best fleet practice and earlier this year it launched its Green Pennant scheme and held a national conference aimed at encouraging fleet operators to cut harmful exhaust emissions in London.

In addition to reducing emissions from the fleet, the council hopes the conversion scheme will further demonstrate to fuel suppliers that demand exists for gas as a road fuel. Until a permanent gas fuel site is opened in Westminster - expected to be within the next six months - a storage tank and fuel pump is being installed at the council's car pound.
