Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

1LLOWING comparative tests of three systems on 18 vehicles, the imberside Ambulance Service has selected the IMPCO dual-fuel stem to convert its vehicle fleet to run on liquefied petroleum gas.

The cost of bulk lpg storage installation and vehicle conversion equipment at £21,800 was substantially recovered within 12 months operation with 94 per cent utilisation.

Humberside Ambulance Service operates a fleet of more than 100 vehicles, constituted largely of Ford Transit 3-litre mainline ambulances.

A further 20 vehicles are to be converted as the next stage in equipping the complete fleet.

Installations are carried out by men trained by HKL Gas Power Ltd of Birmingham to standards set by Humberside Ambulance Service while routine maintenance is undertaken by the service's own transport department.
