Lift Eurotunnel ban on LPG - call from PHH

PHH Vehicle Management has added its weight to a call for liquefied petroleum gas powered vehicles to be allowed through the Eurotunnel.

The tunnel operates a ban on all LPG vehicles, but PHH says this is now outdated and restricting free European passage as motorists turn to the alternative fuel.

Shell recently opened one of its first LPG sites near the tunnel at Dover South Services in anticipation of a change in the regulations. PHH says it is a nonsense for vehicles powered by LPG not to be allowed through when caravans carrying up to 50kg of LPG are permitted through the Eurotunnel. A review of the 1994 regulation is taking place.
