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.

HOW DO I GO AHEAD?
1. SEND US YOUR V5
It is a requirement for TfL to approve your cab for a conversion. Send us a copy of your V5 and we will apply to TfL on your behalf.
2. BOOKING DEPOSIT
Having obtained TfL approval, we initially require a £1,000 deposit (fully refundable) and will arrange a convenient date with you.
3. DROP OFF YOUR CAB
On the agreed date, bring your cab to our facility in Alcester. We take an initial payment of £5,000 before we commence work.
The installation is completed within 8 working days, from removing the diesel engine to the final checks and road test.
We take care of all the paperwork, registering the conversion with the UKLPG, sending the amended V5 to the DVLA and notifying TfL with the relevant documentation.
When the installation is complete, we provide a demonstration on how the system works and how to refuel. Following a satisfactory test drive, the remaining balance is taken.
