When it comes to fuel for forklift trucks (FLTs), LPG is the perfect solution. Not only is it cleaner, more efficient and cheaper than diesel, it provides excellent advantages over electricity too.
It’s powerful, reliable and provides great operational flexibility — allowing businesses to keep productivity high, whilst making significant efficiencies.
With LPG you won’t pay for costly recharging equipment, batteries or battery disposal. Plus, LPG trucks typically cost less to buy and maintain than diesel and electric equivalents.
LPG produces less CO2 than diesel, helping your business reduce its carbon footprint. It won’t leave soot over the products you handle, and produces fewer PM10 particles for improved air quality. It also eliminates the risk of costly spillages.
Refuelling with LPG can be done in minutes (with no batteries to charge), helping to keep productivity up and unwanted downtime down.
|Low upfront costs|

|Consistent, reliable power|
|Flexible prolonged use indoors and out|
For those who don’t require a bulk supply, and where space is limited, we offer a full range of LPG cylinders.
Our 11kg and 18kg FLT cylinders are particularly popular options, providing up to 7.5 hours of operating time.
Compact and efficient, they’re easy to handle and can be changed easily in minutes. Keeping FLTs running smoothly, all our cylinders are fitted with magnets, to stop metallic debris from entering the fuel injection system, and pumps are protected by ‘Y-Strainer’ filters.
For larger businesses where usage is higher, a bulk supply is the most convenient option.
We’ll install your tank (or tanks) on your premises, and then you’re free to refill your cylinders as and when you need.
This can be done quickly and easily, without having to remove heavy cylinders off the trucks. Not only does this reduce costly downtime, but it improves safety for employers too.
With a bulk supply, we’ll also remotely monitor your usage and keep you automatically topped up, so you never have to worry about running out.
