    The following is an extract from' Piston Heads.com'

    "LPG DISCOUNT TO END
    Motorists who wanted to be environmentally friendly and avoid the congestion charge will lose their prized discount.
    Congestion... Emissions... What is it all about?It's believed that thousands of motorists shelled out hundreds of pounds - some paid thousands - to convert their vehicles to run on liquefied petroleum gas, many with the intention of not paying the congestion charge, but their discount will be phased out by 2010.
    That's the plan of Transport for London (TfL) who say the move would only affect a 'very small number of car owners'.
    The announcement is part of plans to charge £25 for the highest polluting cars entering central London zone.
    One reason for the change by TfL is that vehicles converted to use LPG can still use petrol, which is associated with CO2 emissions."

    Is this the beginning to the end of LPG discount for all????:Sad:

    Gordon will start taxing it as well soon. It will probably be the same price as diesel in a few years.:RollEyes:

    This bloody government and their taxes.
    We should all protest about fuel taxes.
    Block the motorways and docks and ferry terminals. Bring the whole thing to a standstill until somethings done.

    Hi Jim its already taxed, 16.49 per litre, (petrol is 53.65) and its going up, a government thinktank (is that an oxymoron?) has said its hardly any less polluting than petrol.

    What the F....... is going on?

    It is a well known fact that engines running LPG are cleaner than other petroleum based fuels.

    This is a typical Knee-jerk reaction to the rising cost of fuel and those lovely people that "we" put in Parliament see the chance to make more money and screw us lowly "serfs" for all they can.

    What happens if everyone votes without putting a cross in the box?

    Chuck 'em out. The whole lot of them.

    I've heard that there have been no protests from Road Hauliers because they have been threatened with having their licences revoked.

    Enough said.

    I'm gonna stew in peace as us Brits are so good at doing.!!!!!............................................................................................NOT.

    I'm beginning to wonder if it's already been discontinued. There aren't many places I can get into to fill my habitation tanks. Drove to the first, 52.9p per litre so I didn't stop. The second one was 56.9p!!!! Didn't bother with diesel either, 111.9p per litre.

    Regards
    Doug

    That argument does not stand if the vehicle has been converted to run fully on LPG like a Dayvan I saw recently that had been converted in the USA.:Doh:

    Mate,I`m totaly with you on this,but I`m affraid we are the minority.This country needs blockades and riots,whatever it takes to wake these A****oles up.They are screwing us for every penny we earn and are making people angry by doing so,I am one of them,I can feel the pressure and stress of it all,and would jump at the chance to gridlock the system.Now who`s going to organise it?:Eeek:

    rant over but I dont feel better for it.:Smile:
