As the government considers a proposal to ban the registration of new vehicles fuelled by liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), the number now on Thailand's roads has topped one million. 

As of the end of January, 1,014,089 vehicles were registered as having LPG engines, according to Somchai Siriwatanachoke, the director-general of the Land Transport Department.
