Three Valleys tests out LPG Transit

THREE Valleys Water is evaluating a liquefied petroleum gas-powered Ford Transit, as part of an on-going programme by Shell Gas to give fleet operators hands on experience of LPG vehicles.

The utility is using the van, loaned by Shell Gas, in its Luton-based leak detection unit. The Transit has a range of up to 200 miles in urban conditions from its 44 litre gas tank, which is underslung so it does not impinge on load space.

With favourable duty levels on LPG reinforced by the Budget, Shell estimates fleets can achieve savings after just 10,000 miles a year by switching from diesel to LPG.
