LPG


We sell Liquid Petroleum Gas (also known as Autogas) from our workshop site, 9am-5pm Monday-Friday.

LPG is the generic name for commercial propane gas, produced by the oil and gas industries as a byproduct of petrol. The same gas is often used in rural areas for cooking and heating.

We can only accept cash payments at this time.

To find out more about LPG and its uses, take a look at Wikipedia.
