High fuel prices has not been an issue for Hereford-based Mac's Cars asall its taxis have been converted to run on LPG.
Typically, LPG costs around half that of petrol, resulting in annual savings of about 35-40% in fuel costs for Mac’s Cars. The company, which is owned by Mac McLaughlin who started the business in 1994, operates three vehicles.
It’s not uncommon for its vehicles to top 600,000 miles in their line of work, and Mac’s first car clocked up more than that amount without any engine problems before it was replaced, while his current fleet has one car showing 600,012 miles, and two more both reading over 250,000 miles on the clock and counting.
Apart from his first model all the conversions have been carried out by Station Auto Services in Hereford.
