Lobby boost for LPG break

LPG fuel provider Autogas is upping its lobbying as it strives to persuade government to commit to long-term incentives to eco-friendly fuel users.


The action comes after it was announced that the London congestion charge exemption for alternative fuel vehicles including those converted to LPG will end on December 24 this year.


Jem Aldridge, general manager of Autogas, believes this will discourage consumers and industry from investing in greener fuels: "The government needs to provide greater certainty over the future of LPG fuel duty to encourage investment decisions that benefit both the UK economy and the environment.


"Alternative fuels like LPG have a key role to play in meeting the UK's climate change commitments and improving energy security. This announcement is detrimental."
