I know it's a shocker! And it's one of the cleanest fuels around!! (Zero NOx)

Crazy isn't it, especially that the government is clamping down on emissions, thankfully plenty of garages still have availability where I am, and lots of various vehicles are converted here.

Good luck finding a local source, do you use the fill lpg app?

I guess with the increasing move to electric/hybrid vehicles, demand for LPG has dropped off? I’m also guessing a lot of LPG cars are getting older and not being replaced with other converted vehicles, when they reach the end of their useful life?

I wonder if we’ll see similar in 20 years with diesel? Whistle Got - 2008 TDV8 Vogue SE in Java black

the Shell pumps seemed to be pulled out during lockdown.
I have only one expensive pump near me and would have a 40 mile round trip to source cheaply. even Morrison have pulled pumps
I'm back on petrol, have been since March

Iv got x1 local station here on the A20 recently the pump supplier changed to green fuels I think.
Yes the government missed a trick with lpg but then again they don't really care it's all Censored . You could once upon a time buy new out of the show room either an lpg Volvo or Vauxhall car factory built. And they never use to tax lpg either.

The local Asda have just refitted their station and have made it totally automated. In doing so, they've removed their LPG pumps. Apparently the other Asda stores around about are doing the same over time.

The local Shell I refused to buy LPG from on principle as he was 18p a litre dearer then Asda.

I've just bought a Supercharged with LPG on it and am sorely tempted to remove it as it's getting so hard to find. I've never converted a car to LPG but have bought P38's with it already fitted so have just used them on LPG. This SC needs a few jobs doing and seeing as they don't like LPG, it might make sense to remove it.

If you have the space have you considered putting in a bulk tank? In a previous job we had lpg forklifts and used a bulk tank with a manual pump but you can get electric ones. 2012 tdv8 Westminster arrived Jan 19

I got rid of mine because it was a complete lottery, even those stations which still had it regularly ran out or broke down.

Toyed with the idea of my own tank but the vehicle tanks were that small it would only be useful for local stuff.

Back in a diesel now, 500 mile range, lovely
