Autogas is looking into the possiblity of making its product more accessible on forecourts after the installation of a new fuel dispenser at Shell Barking.

Following feedback from motorists that its LPG dispensers were often blocked by drivers waiting for the petrol or diesel pumps, a new dedicated Autogas refuelling point has been constructed to the side of the forecourt. With clear signage to help drivers locate the point more easily, the arrangement is the first of its type anywhere in the country and will be used as a test site for potential expansion across the UK.

Linda Gomersall, general manager of Autogas, said: “At Autogas we’re consistently looking for ways to better the service we provide to LPG motorists. Having listened to customers comments, we hope this new investment at Shell Barking will ensure that drivers enjoy a hassle-free driving experience on a clear conscience, knowing their car is more environmentally friendly too.

“We look forward to hearing feedback from users on the new site arrangement so we can assess similar rollouts across the country.”
