Fiji Gas Salutes LPG Vehicle Owners
Fiji Gas has saluted auto gas vehicle owners for their choice of cars.
With the 20th Auto gas station opening in Vitogo Parade Lautoka on Wednesday the chief executive of Fiji Gas, Hans Reiher, said use of LPG vehicles was choosing the best environmental alternative.
He said this is also contributing to the preservation of our country and region.
“LPG is a cleaner and greener fuel and is rapidly becoming a traditional fuel of choice as we move towards more renewable,” Mr Reiher said.
He said the demand for auto gas fuel station had upped given the increase in buyers of LPG cars.
Mr Reiher said the Fiji Government is committed to climate change action and had pledged to cut its overall emissions from the energy sector by 30 per cent by 2030.
“The Government has maintained its duty concession on imported LPG over the past 10 years and continue to do so going forward,” he said.
“We can and need to individually make the right energy choices as to how we power our homes and cars.
“LPG has been proven to have lower carbon emissions and a lower carbon footprint than other fuels.’’
The first LPG powered vehicle was driven in Fiji in the mid 70’s by the now chairman of the board of Fiji Gas Mr Harvie Probert.
He drove a Mazda ute converted from petrol to LPG.
