Gas-powered Jaguars ready for go-ahead

SUPER-clean Jaguars could be in the showrooms within weeks of a decision to go ahead with adding gas power to the company's model line-up. But the option depends largely on the amount of pressure the Government decides to exert on its officials and civil servants to make the switch to LPG, believes police and special sales manager Pat Smart.

'All the groundwork has been covered, and the calibration of the engine management system is all that needs to be completed. But the Government really holds the key as to where we go from here. If it instructs officials, civil servants and chief police and fire officers to go green, we can be ready in weeks rather than months,' Smart said. Jaguar's development models use the Dutch Prinz Autogaz system, installed by Power Torque of Coventry.
