LPG supplier Autogas has opened its first refuelling facility in Grimsby at the newly rebuilt Shell petrol station on Moody Lane.

Autogas invested in excess of £67,000 putting the new autogas LPG refuelling facility in to the site as part of Shell’s full refurbishment of the facility.

It means that motorists can now refuel for as little as 72.9 pence per litre (ppl) at the new facility.

Autogas business development manager Paul Oxford said: “The opening of this facility at the new Shell site in Grimsby is great news for local motorists looking to slash their fuel bills by as much as 40%.

“As well as helping drivers to cheaper motoring, cars running on autogas LPG are also cleaner than their petrol and diesel counterparts, so it’s also better for the environment.”

Currently in the UK there are approximately 160,000 cars that run on Autogas LPG.

Oxford added: “Although it’s only just opened, we expect to do brisk business at the busy site, not just with car owners but also local businesses such as taxi firms and delivery drivers who can benefit from reduced running costs.”
