In December, a forecourt in Ipswich was the first to grab the glory for Shell and Calor Autogas as the 1,000th site in the United Kingdom.
However, in February, a BP service station in Woolwich, south east London, will hoist the LPG flag high for the milestone in Great Britain, under the auspices of the LP Gas Association.
Speaking about the Shell site, LP Gas Association director- general Tom Fiddell claimed: 'It has been agreed with the companies involved, Government, Department of Trade and Industry, and the Department for Transport, Local Government and the Regions that the Woolwich site is the official one.'
Andrew Ford, corporate affairs manager for Calor Autogas said: 'The LPGA is not including Northern Ireland, but we have businesses there. Either way, it's good news.' The United Kingdom includes Northern Ireland. Great Britain consists of England, Scotland and Wales.
