Liquigas Malta has opened the 5th AutoLiquigas filling station at Santa Maria Service Station in Mellieħa, providing Liquified Petrolium Gas (LPG) for vehicles
Around 2,000 vehicles have been converted from petrol to LPG since the launch of AutoLiquigas in Malta in 2012. Estimates show that in 2016 vehicles running on LPG have reduced over 500 tons of carbon dioxide, in addition to significant reductions in nitrogen oxides and particulate matter.
Four other operational stations offer AutoLiquigas: Malta International Airport Service Station in Gudja; J Micallef Service Station in Triq Buqana, Rabat; Wembley Service Station in St Andrew’s Road, Swieqi; and VC Service Station in Naxxar Road, Għargħur.
Two more AutoLiquigas dispensers are planned for the beginning of 2018, including one in Gozo.
Vehicle LPG conversions are being carried out by seven authorised autogas installers across Malta. These results in a dual-fuel car which can run on either LPG or petrol at the flick of a switch, even while driving.
Car owners can apply for the government’s gas conversion scheme from Transport Malta which grants up to €200, subject to some conditions. Government has further extended the scheme in the 2018 budget.
