Growing concerns about vehicle emissions and poor air quality have sparked a renewed interest in LPG vehicle conversions, reports Autogas.
During the last two months, the number of drivers registering their interest to convert their car to run on LPG via the Autogas website has more than doubled the normal monthly volume.
“With its potential for huge cost savings, LPG has always appealed to those drivers looking to reduce their fuel bills, but with the growing concerns about emissions levels over the last couple of months, we’re now seeing a significant increase in conversion enquiries as more fleets and individuals look for cleaner alternatives to diesel and petrol,” said Linda Gomersall, general manager of Autogas.
Earlier this year, Autogas established a nationwide vehicle conversion network to provide easier access to high quality LPG conversions.
Conversions typically cost around £1,500 for a 4-cylinder petrol engine and once the vehicle is converted, drivers can access more than 1,400 conveniently located forecourt locations around the UK which dispense autogas LPG.
