Sainsbury looks at trialling LPG

SUPERMARKET giant Sainsbury is considering trialling liquefied petroleum gas at one of its 199 filling stations as part of an investigation into growing demand for the fuel. The firm has been in talks with fuel suppliers as part of a feasibility study into the fuel which has rejected the viability of supplying compressed natural gas through its forecourts.

If a decision to install a test pump went ahead, the company would target an area where demand was expected to be greatest, but no decision has yet been taken. A spokesman for rival Tesco said there were no current plans to look into alternative fuels for its forecourts.
