In recent years motorists running on LPG have benefited from this low cost and environmentally friendly fuel. In contrast to the volatile prices of petrol and diesel, LPG autogas has always been very stable with gradual increases reflecting its average world commodity price.

However, for the first time in at least four years the average price at the pumps in the UK has started to fall. And this is at a time when the Energy Saving Trust are warning that oil prices are on the rise in the face of future production cuts from the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec).

After allowing for the reduced mpg, running on LPG is set to return to savings of over 40% on fuel costs compared with petrol, and over 20% compared with the equivalent diesel.

Furthermore fleet operators can negotiate significant savings on the pump prices with their own bunkered facility or fuel card discounts.

The continued government support for this environmentally friendly fuel provides a guarantee of the low level fuel duty for at least three years. This means that the price of LPG at the pumps will continue at less than half the price of petrol and diesel for the foreseeable future.

Rob Shuttleworth, Director General of the LP Gas Association, said " Now has never been a better time to join the over 10 million motorists worldwide who benefit from running on LPG. There are now around 1300 public access refuelling sites in the UK which means that it is easy to fill up wherever you are in the country.

With the significant environmental advantages of using LPG, motorists changing to this fuel should not only save money but will also be playing their part in improving the environment by way of both carbon savings and enhanced air quality."
