Gas Conversion Scheme to Convert Vehicles to Autogas/LPG
As announced in the Budget 2016 speech, the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure in conjunction with Transport Malta, is launching another scheme to give an incentive for vehicle owners to convert their vehicle’s fuel system to Autogas/LPG.
This is another environment friendly budget measure aimed at reducing the amount of emissions generated from road traffic. Subject to various conditions, the grant amounts to €200 which will be given upon the conversion to Autogas/LPG of a Category M1 vehicle, (a passenger vehicle with a seating capacity of up to eight passengers and the driver) or a Category N1 vehicle, (a vehicle designed and constructed for the carriage of goods and having a maximum mass not exceeding 3.5 tonnes).
The scheme comes into effect as from the 1st January 2016 and closes on the 31st December 2016 or earlier if the maximum of 250 claims has been reached. Applications are processed on a first come first serve basis. Persons who have converted their vehicle to Autogas in 2015 may still apply for the scheme.
Applications for such scheme are available from Transport Malta Offices, Vehicle Licensing Unit, Hornsworks Ditch, Floriana or downloaded here.
