Multi-gold medal winning Paralympian and World Champion Michael McKillop has now converted his car to Autogas. The conversion was in charge of Irish company Flogas, of which the athlete is brand ambassador.
“I am very pleased with the move to Autogas because I would drive over 1,000 miles a month for training and race meetings in Ireland and the UK. As Autogas is far cheaper than petrol, I will certainly notice the positive impact on my wallet!,” said McKillop.
2017 is a busy year for Michael, the reigning world champion in the 800 and 1,500 metres (T37), who will be attending race meetings across Ireland, including the Belfast International T&F Meet as well as defending his titles at the 2017 IPC Para Athletics World Championships in London.
Paul Ruegg, senior marketing executive, Flogas, said “In addition to his world-renowned achievements, Michael is an excellent role model for up and coming young athletes and Flogas is delighted and proud to have him as their brand ambassador.”
Autogas, a cleaner, greener and cheaper alternative to petrol and diesel, is currently used in more than 13 million vehicles operating worldwide. As well as being cheaper than petrol or diesel, it generates considerably fewer emissions than fossil fuels, contributing to the protection of the environment and human health while also mitigating the threat of climate change.
