According to a recent report by British Car Auctions, motorists are increasingly putting lower running costs and green thinking at the top of their wish list when it comes to their next purchase.
However, the simple truth is that the hassle of buying a replacement car to meet these demands can be avoided simply by converting to LPG autogas, the cheaper and cleaner alternative to petrol or diesel.
Indeed, for motorists looking to balance increasingly tight household budgets, the introduction of the 3p-a-litre price rise in fuel duty starting in January 2013 will mean even more financial pressures, making the switch to LPG even more appealing.
And by converting your current car to LPG autogas you can enjoy the cost savings straight away without any of the risks or uncertainty associated with acquiring a new car, and at the same time reduce your carbon footprint.
Conveniently, most petrol powered cars can be converted to run on LPG and the typical motorist covering 20,000 miles per annum should be able to recover the initial conversion cost within two years.
An established refuelling network across the UK with more than 1,400 locations, including the recent opening of the very first LPG autogas site on the M25 at Shell Cobham, makes the cheaper and greener fuel readily available.
All in all, it’s a great time to make the switch.
