A scheme to encourage people to convert a vehicle’s fuel system to autogas or LPG comes into effect tomorrow, Transport Malta said yesterday.

The scheme was announced in the Budget and is aimed at reducing the amount of emissions generated from road traffic.

The transport watchdog said that subject to various conditions, the grant amounts to €200 which would be given upon conversion to autogas or LPG.

The scheme closes on December 31, 2016 or earlier if the maximum of 250 claims is reached.

“Applications are processed on a first come, first served basis. Persons who have converted their vehicle to autogas in 2015 may still apply,” Transport Malta said.

Applications are available from Transport Malta Offices, Vehicle Licensing Unit, Hornsworks Ditch, Floriana or downloaded from www.transport.gov.mt.
