 Found this on the ULEZ web site.

 "Retrofit: convert to Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG)
If your vehicle has been converted to run on LPG you may meet the emissions standards. Converted vehicles will be treated based on the DVLA's records of its emissions standards. This means diesel vehicles should be converted to use LPG in a spark ignition engine, and the DVLA notified of the change.

We recommend using a UK LPG-approved installer. Our LoCITY programme has an up to date map showing LPG refuelling infrastructure in and around London."

 The question is would you really want to drive a 126 with a gas tank fitted? I certainly wouldn't just from the safety point of view.
 Just buy a nice early air cooled car, that is a better option :)

The other issue is that it's not just London that is rolling out the ULEZ, several large UK cities are reviewing plans to have a ULEZ systems / areas, which will provide additional funding for the Local councils. And we all know how much councils like making money and lining their own pockets.

It looks like buying an early aircooled 126 is the only option. Mike's 1983 126 and dcee's 1973 126 are up my street, but I need to sell me 126 Bis first. Any takers?

Another alternative is to buy a classic Fiat 500.

ULEZ is all about making money, low emission zones is an excuse to do so
