About Greenfuel

Former racing driver, Ingram Legge (left of picture) met Noel Lock, an environmentalist and former restaurant owner, whilst completing an MBA course at the University of Bath.

They discovered that LPG (autogas) was used extensively worldwide but had a small presence in Britain.

Following their research, Noel and Ingram formulated a business plan to boost the UK autogas industry.
