Shell's first central London pump opens as part of £10m investment

SHELL UK has opened its first central London liquefied petroleum gas filling pump as part of a £10 million investment in alternative fuels. The pump will sell MotorGas, the new brand name for LPG from Shell, at Semley Place filling station, in Victoria, chosen for its prime location, and will primarily serve the local business community.

Shell is planning 200 sites throughout the country as part of its investment in LPG making pumps available to 80% of the population. It comes as Calor Autogas adds two LPG sites to its refuelling network, at Oakley's Gases and Oakley's Fuel Oils in Shrewsbury and Telford, bringing the total to 64.

Shell Fuel and Fleet Services has also helped with making clean fuels more attractive to fleets by accepting LPG transactions on its fuel cards. The Lord Mayor of Westminster, pictured centre, Cllr David Harvey became the first customer, when he filled his dual-fuel Daimler. Since the event, other sites opened include Woodford, Wandsworth and a further site is planned at Syon Park, near Chiswick.
