You're not blind, eh Stevie?
There's always a bit of a lag, LPG prices follow the trend of petrol prices... Works out at half price but with LPG prices rising / falling after the same event with petrol prices.
Now we're reading reports from all over the country of LPG being available at 40odd pence per litre... Happy days regards fuel prices.
I've said this elsewhere on the forum in recent weeks - Petrol was recently £1.30, now it's done to £1.12 or thereabouts. At £1.30 everyone was moaning about fuel prices, I (and I presume most of us installers) were busier then converting vehicles etc. But petrol is still, as usual, twice the price of LPG, and increasingly more often LPG is available at below half the price of petrol.
I appreciate that if petrol was £3 per litre and LPG was £1.50 per litre the LPG conversion industry would be a lot busier, and if petrol was 2p per litre and LPG 1p per litre we wouldn't be doing many conversions.. But with petrol at £1.12 per litre and LPG at half the price, massive savings are still to be made by converting to LPG. Doesn't seem long ago that petrol was 80p per litre, LPG 40p per litre and we were all busy converting vehicles. Now people have become used to paying £1.30 per litre for petrol they seem to think petrol is cheap now the price has been reduced to £1.12 and don't feel the need to convert to LPG. I wonder - if petrol had never climbed to £1.30, would people still think petrol cheap at £1.12? Even at £1.12 per litre it's still very easy for even a mid sized hatchback owner who commutes to work to blow £40 per week on petrol.. Even this example modest user would save £20 per week running on LPG.. Anyone doing anything like average mileage in a small / average vehicle would still save loads of money converting to LPG.. Why settle for paying £1.12 per litre?
