Cash savings with LPG could fund a new vehicle

SAVINGS from running a fleet of 15 vehicles or more on gas can be enough to buy a new car or van, according to figures compiled by Calor Autogas.

Figures based on a Vauxhall Vectra 2.0-litre car running 25,000 a year with a manufacturer-supplied urban cycle fuel consumption of 23mpg and a Ford Transit 2.0-litre running 40,000 miles a year with a manufacturer-supplied urban cycle fuel consumption of 20mpg would return savings of £905 and £1,666 if they ran on liquefied petroleum gas instead of unleaded petrol costing 67.07p per litre based on PHH Vehicle Management's national forecourt fuel price average.

Calor Autogas general manager Keith Power said: 'The significant economic benefits and environmental advantages for fleet operators converting to LPG are constantly increasing. By converting fleets to run on Autogas, fleet operators can significantly save costs and therefore increase profits for their company.'
