Nigeria to begin conversion of vehicles, generators to gas-fuelling in October

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, has disclosed that conversion of vehicles and generating sets to gas-fuelling will begin in October.

The minister, who spoke on NTA’s “Good Morning Nigeria” on Monday, said the move is a follow-up to his promise upon appointment, to provide cheaper, cleaner and affordable alternative fuel. According to him, the federal government will convert vehicles and generating sets free of charge for Nigerians.

He said: “The alternative we are now introducing is gas, which is definitely going to be cheaper than the subsidised rate of PMS. So, what we are trying to encourage Nigerians to do now is to convert their cars to dual fuel”. “That means your car can use either gas or petrol and that will be done for free because the government is going to ensure that you are able to convert your vehicles for free”.
