Liquefied petroleum gas as a fuel in the state government fleet

The committee views with concern the lack of interest and initiative which surrounds the use of LPG as an automotive fuel in the Victorian state government fleet, the one exception being the Gas and Fuel Corporation. If it had not been for the work and encouragement of the corporation, the committee believes the whole issue would by now have been moribund. The public servants involved in deciding whether the registration of the Datsun 200B LPG car is valid appear to the committee to have been excessively pedantic and the cause of unnecessary caution. The car has been passed for registration by the Chief Commissioner of Police and is described as a completely safe car. The committee recommends that the Victorian Government Motor Transport Committee (VGMTC) monitor the conversion rate of all state government owned motor vehicles during the next four months and report the result of its findings to the committee by 30 September 1981.
