Fuel distributor, Bayford & Co, has vowed to continue meeting demand for

low sulphur leaded fuel, despite Government claims of an imminent LRP supply crisis.

Jonathan Turner, managing director, Bayford & Co, said: “Whether intentional or not, recent comments from both the AA and Department for Transport are misleading and have resulted in press comments that a fuel crisis for owners of old cars is imminent. This is most definitely not the case.”

Around 1.5 million cars still run on LRP.
