Pricewatch: LPG v diesel

FLEET NewsNet takes a look at how new cars taken on to a typical fleet might perform over the next three years and 60,000 miles.

Using data from used car expert CAP Motor Research, we benchmark two cars against each other to see how they perform over the traditional fleet cycle. There has been continued debate about the future of alternative fuels, but how do green vehicles perform against traditional diesel variants?
