Salesman reports significant fuel savings with LPG
Crompton purchased a petrol-powered 2010 Vauxhall Astra three years ago and immediately had it converted to run on autogas LPG.
“The conversion was carried out by Autogas Battersea, cost me just £950 and was paid off in only four months. I travel around 30,000 miles per year and am now saving between £150 and £250 every month on my fuel costs. I was introduced to LPG in 2006 through a friend who had been driving it for some years. The cost of petrol was starting to spiral and so I started looking at alternative fuel options.”
In three years Crompton has saved over £6,000 on fuel and thinks others should definitely consider LPG.
He added: “This is my second LPG car and I’ll continue to drive on it for the foreseeable future. There should be more incentives for drivers and businesses to switch to cleaner fuels, including LPG, and particularly in London. Incentives to switch, such as grants, should match those for electric and hybrid vehicles.”
Crompton concluded: “If you’re a high mileage driver the cost-saving benefit is very clear. It was definitely worth making the switch to LPG. The conversion was really simple, well priced and paid off very quickly.”
