Our local taxi company only uses electric and hybrid vehicles. They've just bought a fleet of CHR hybrids. Had a lift in one last Saturday night. Makes a nice taxi!
The driver was saying that they had them all converted by a company they use to LPG so getting high MPG for taxi work plus minuscule fuel costs. I asked if this invalidated the warranty and he said no, Toyota were fine with it! I'd be surprised if they were fine with it but I guess a warranty for a taxi would expire very quickly (driver said 100,000 miles within a year typical).

LPG isn't as cheap as it once was and availability seems less than 5yrs ago, but if you have your own fleet then you'd presumably have your own tank.

When I had my Jag converted 11yrs ago LPG was 33ppl and unleaded 89ppl = 63% cheaper
Now typically LPG is 60ppl and unleaded £1.15ppl = 48% cheaper

There do seem to be less regional differences too, but it's still possible to buy LPG in the West Mids or Lancs for less than 45ppl

DrM, it may help if you were to actually publish your town or region as 'UK' is a wee bit nebulous :)

The boot isn't big, but it definitely is far from tiny. Also there's plenty of rear space (asked a lot of people - big and small - how it feels in the back and even after a few hours trips all said it plenty)

I think if the driver was 6'4" then there'd be little room behind them.
