Tokheim Installs First Ever LPG Dispenser with Media in UK

Earlier this year, Tokheim and Flogas partnered on a project to install the UKs first ever LPG dispenser with an integrated media display in model: Q510 LPG with TQC VGA.

Mark Clark, regional sales manager for FlogasBritain, says, “The commercial case for Autogas LPG is growing ever more compelling, thanks to evidence highlighting that vehicles running on Autogas LPG boast lower carbon than petrol cars. Flogas is delighted to support such a pioneering project, which reinforces our already established reputation as an energy partner not just an LPG provider and which showcases just what an adaptable, future-friendly fuel LPG is.” 

The alternative fuels market is continuing its growth across Europe and the latest figures confirm that LPG - which currently powers almost 3% of the passenger car fleet in Europe – is the most widely used alternative fuel. There are approximately 12 million LPG vehicles worldwide, while projections in Europe alone estimate that LPG could meet us much as 10% of Europe’s passenger car fuel mix by the year 2020, or 23 million vehicles. 

Adrian Beeby, Tokheim UK Sales Director, says, “There has definitely been an increased level of discussion around LPG in the last 2 years. It’s an extremely cost-effective fuel, so an increasing number of drivers are purchasing or retrofitting LPG vehicles; this has led to an increased demand on the forecourts. The quality of the components and the range of solutions on offer have given us the edge in the UK LPG market. Our clients like that our Quantium LPG is truly modular – so they can add features like outdoor payment or in this case media to provide their end-users with added flexibility.” 

In the UK there are some 1,400 LPG refuelling installations, making the fuel readily available across the country, with Flogas operating a 30% share of the Autogas market. Currently, cars powered by Flogas LPG are available directly from the showroom of more than 20 different vehicle manufacturers in Europe, offering drivers savings of up to 40% on their annual fuel bills.
