Information for London drivers
Approved by TfL for TXII and TX4.
Tackling air pollution is a public health priority for London. Diesel powered taxis are a significant contributor to poor air quality so to combat this, TfL are incentivising cab drivers to switch to cleaner fuels.
By repowering your cab to our Euro 6 LPG engine, TfL will award an extension to the life of your cab and will help pay towards the cost of the conversion for TX4's with the Euro 5 engine.
NEW LICENSING LAWS
Effective from 01/11/2019
From the 1st Nov 2019 the maximum age limit will be reduced by 1 year, every year, until 1st Nov 2022 when the maximum age limit for non-Euro 6 vehicles will be 12 years.
Newly converted LPG cabs will have a maximum operating life of 15 years.
Euro 5 TX4 cabs (manufactured 2012-2016) are eligible for a £5,000 grant through TfL to convert their cab.

HOW DO I GO AHEAD?
1. GAIN TFL APPROVAL
You must first seek approval from TfL to convert your cab. Euro 5 cab owners will also need to apply to TfL for the grant scheme. You can do so by clicking here.
2. BOOKING DEPOSIT
Having obtained TfL approval, we initially require a £1,000 deposit (fully refundable) in order to book a date for the repowering at your chosen workshop.
3. DROP OFF YOUR CAB
On the agreed date, bring your cab to workshop. We take an initial payment of £5,000 before we commence work.
The installation is completed, from removing the diesel engine to the final checks and road test.
We register the conversion with the UKLPG and provide all of the necessary paperwork to send to the DVLA and TfL.
When the installation is complete, we provide a demonstration on how the system works and how to refuel. The remaining balance is due in order to release the vehicle.
