The system used is the Landi Ha rtog conversion for which Lex is a fully appointed dealership and fitting agent.
The conversions are already underway and all vehicles will be in service by early November.

Stockport's vehicle service department engineers predict fuel cost savings of up to 30 per cent and plan to convert virtually the whole fleet in due course.
