Ferwell Engineering, based in Leicester, has taken delivery of six Vauxhall Combo and two Astravan dualfuel vehicles in the first wave of its conversion to the fuel. It has also moved to contract hire with Vauxhall MasterHire to try and reduce administration and budget more accurately after previously buying vans through outright purchase. The vans are being supplied by Vauxhall dealer Marshall Leicester, which has reported an upturn in interest for LPG from local businesses.
Terry McNulty, director of Ferwell Engineering, said: 'It makes perfect business and environmental sense. Now we are looking into providing bunkered LPG on site.'
