Cheaper motoring is now more accessible in Stratford-upon-Avon, thanks to increased availability of LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) from Autogas.

The cleaner burning automotive fuel can dramatically reduce fuel costs by up to 40 per cent and to highlight its availability at Shell Bridgetown, Shipston Road, Autogas will be holding an awareness day on the forecourt on Friday 2 December from 12 noon until 4pm.

Mr Nadhim Zahawi MP will officially mark the availability of LPG in the region by attending the awareness day and motorists will also be able to take advantage of a promotional offer and discount on the price of LPG.

Experts from Autogas and a local UKLPG approved conversion specialist will be giving motorists advice on LPG vehicles and how to switch and save. 

As the UK’s leading LPG supplier, Autogas, has pledged to open more LPG refuelling sites across the UK and has identified Stratford-upon-Avon as a key site for increasing nationwide availability.

The company’s business development manager, Paul Oxford explains:  “At a time of ever increasing petrol and diesel prices, LPG cannot be ignored as an alternative. It currently retails at an average price of 74.5 pence per litre, compared to 133.4 ppl for petrol and 141.3 ppl for diesel*.”

Liquefied Petroleum Gas, or LPG, has an established and easily accessible refuelling network and is available from 1,400 public refuelling points up and down the country; with the majority of Autogas Limited LPG refuelling sites being located on Shell forecourts on motorways, major trunk roads and in major conurbations, allowing drivers to benefit from all the normal forecourt facilities including fuel card payments.”

Paul Oxford adds: “What drivers really like is the fact that it’s the same as driving a petrol car with no compromise on vehicle range and performance. With over a third of Shell owned UK forecourts now retailing autogas drivers don’t have to go out of their way to refuel. In fact to make life easier we provide a free to download sat-nav site locator on our website’’

For more information, visit the Shell Bridgetown forecourt on Shipston Road on Friday 2nd December from 12 noon until 4pm to receive one to one advice on switching to LPG. Alternatively, visit or call 0800 077 8591.
