This prompted him to start his own business, PI Fuel Systems, offering tailor-made LPG systems for petrol and diesel vehicles.
LPG can significantly lower fuel costs, give better performance and reduce emissions, according to the system installed.
A qualified motor vehicle engineer with more than 22 years' experience, Chris is perfectly placed to provide these services.
He is also an LPGA (Liquified Petroleum Gas Association) approved installer, trained to perform safe, high standard installations.
Chris said: "BVE advised on my business plan, knowing that marketing and advertising were essential.
"They were right — the mainstay of PI Fuel Systems was dual fuel petrol conversions, but now I am reaching more and more diesel customers."
Chris developed and markets his own diesel performance enhancement system called Powershot TM.
Every diesel owner can increase power and performance while saving money through better fuel economy.
Targeting potential customers with leaflets, a website and advertising in 4x4 and relevant publications has generated so much interest that Chris is already planning the next generation system.
Chris discussed with BVE how to approach institutions for development grants and has also been contacted by the Energy Saving Trust regarding Powershot TM.
