I've had a quick look on their website, I struggle to find anything about autogas.
Is it worth approaching them and asking the question?
I'd say so - not sure whether it would be best to approach them on an individual basis or whether to ask one of the moderators and/or installers on here to speak for the "forum community" as a whole.
My first thought when i read your post was "No but i bet it would be worth approaching them and TELLING them they have to continue providing it". Obviously that's a bit tongue in cheek but as the old saying goes, many a true word spoken in jest so perhaps a petition to enforce whatever approach we make, either individually or as a forum.
What do you think?
I found the email address for the Service Station enguiries :
Service station enquiries
For comments or complaints about our service stations and retail outlets in the UK, please contact us via email@example.com
I also decided to take the bull by the horns and send an email. It is on an individual basis but could be reinforced by others doing similar and possibly if one of the admins/moderators/installers on here could send an email as a representation from the forum that would add more weight.
Here's a copy of the body of my email, by no means do i suggest it's ideal and some points are perhaps unnecessary but i'm sure it could be adapted to individual circumstances :
i've heard a nasty rumour that LPG/Autogas is going to be phased out by BP as and when filling stations are refurbished. Could you confirm this or deny it please?
If it is going to be phased out, i would like to register my protest even though i'm a relatively recent (7 months and counting) convert to LPG and so far, apart from once i have filled up at BP stations. I hold a Nectar card and use it whenever i fill up. In addition to my LPG vehicle, i have two "modern classic" Rover 827s that i run exclusively on Ultimate Unleaded although i have plans to add LPG to both of them.
The loss of LPG from your forecourts would not only be a great inconvenience to me but to many others who run LPG powered vehicles and seems a very short-sighted business model, especially when LPG is becoming more popular.
I hope and trust this is only a rumour and in all honesty would welcome the addition of LPG pumps as and when stations are refurbished.
In my area, two Esso stations were recently refurbished (one literally just reopened) and a new Shell station has opened - none of these have LPG so in my area the only outlets with LPG are in fact BP stations. My nearest station is London Rd, Brandon, Suffolk although that doesn't currently have LPG but gives you an idea where my nearest LPG supplying stations are.
Hopefully this presents a case for keeping LPG, albeit on an individual level. However i'm sure there are many others out there who feel the same.
I look forward to your early response!
Like i said, probably not perfect but hopefully they will take notice!
