Rebate makes gas more affordable

MOTORISTS converting their vehicles to Liquefied Petroleum Gas or buying LPG-powered vehicles will receive $500 from the WA Government.

The cost of LPG conversion – up to $2,500 in some cases – has been a major impediment to gas use.

The subsidy is available to owners of vehicles on which the family registration rebate is claimed.

RAC senior engineer policy Mike Upton said the incentive meant a LPG conversion would probably pay for itself a year earlier.

“At the full price of the conversion it takes about 70,000 to 80,000 kilometres for a motorists to recover the cost. With the subsidy that drops to about 50,000 kilometres,” Mr Upton said.

The Government subsidy covers family, not commercial, vehicles.

However, commercial vehicle owners get a 50 per cent Federal Government rebate on the cost of converting to alternative fuel sources.
