SHELL have stopped supplying LPG nation wide altogether.
Emailed them and they replied.
Not making any money.

If enough demand isn’t there, why would a filling station install and maintain the infrastrucure?

It's because they haven't bothered installing and maintaining the infrastructure that there hasn't been an uptake - obviously less profit in LPG than there is in BEV charging points!

Even at 80p/L, it's still cheaper than £1.349p/L for BP Ultimate Unleaded as i paid yesterday!
