The new Lord Mayor Boris Johnson has scrapped the proposed changes ..so LPG cars that are on the powershift register will remain exempt from the £8.00 daily charge

UKLPG welcomes the decision by London Mayor, Boris Johnson, to continue the Alternative Fuel
Discount in London following the cancellation of the proposed CO2 Emissions Related Congestion Charging.

Mike Chapman, Autogas Manager, said This is great news, both for London and LPG autogas.
This decision ensures that LPG receives continued recognition for the contribution made to
improving the air quality in London”, and went on to say, “It takes over 120 LPG cars to equal
the fine particles produced by one equivalent diesel car.

Motorists running on LPG can be re-assured that not only are they helping Londons air quality
but are also reducing their carbon footprint compared with both petrol and diesel.

LPG autogas is by far the most widely available alternative fuel in the UK and with the long
term government support on fuel duty the savings have never been greater.

Cheers Bill, definitely worth a read that, still no reduction on road tax for pre 2001 motors tho, but at least Richmond are heading the way by dropping converted cars down a group :wink:
