LPG Car Users Urged to Join the 40,000 Vehicles on the UKLPG Vehicle Register

Launched last September, the UKLPG Vehicle Register is an online central register of vehicles converted to run on LPG autogas. To check a vehicle is registered you simply type in the vehicle registration number you wish to check on www.drivelpg.co.uk.

Introduced in conjunction with the insurance industry and with the support of the Department for Transport, the Vehicle Register is an industry initiative to provide an easy and secure means to verify that a conversion to LPG autogas has been undertaken in a safe and satisfactory manner, and a great tool for insurance companies and consumers alike.

Only UKLPG Approved Autogas Installers can add vehicles to the Register. For new installations by approved installers being added to the register is now part of the conversion process, however there is also an opportunity for existing converted vehicles to be added. If a vehicle was previously converted by an LPGA Approved Installer then just send the embossed green A5 certificate to UKLPG who will add the vehicle for free. Alternatively if you do not have a certificate you can take your vehicle to a UKLPG Approved Autogas Installer and they are authorised to inspect any vehicle already converted and if found satisfactory to add that vehicle to the Register.

 

Mike Chapman, Autogas Manager for UKLPG said:

"This initiative means that any LPG vehicle, irrespective of who converted it, can be registered, and we would encourage all UKLPG drivers to get their vehicles register to ensure their conversion is safe and maintained. This service is also making it easier when apply for car insurance as any insurance company can check this database and offers further reassurance when purchasing a second hand LPG vehicle."
