Autogas in Malta - little by little

While expanding your autogas station network by 25% may sound impressive, much depends on how many such stations you have to begin with. Liquigas Malta had four and a fifth one has just been added and launched. Well, you've got to start low to get far.

Autogas is a very young fuel in Malta – it was only introduced there in 2012 and since then, 2000 vehicles have been converted, cutting annual carbon dioxide output by approx. 500 tonnes. The new facility has been launched at the Santa Maria Service Station in Mellieħa, the remaining four being located at the 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. Given the country is quite small, that's already something of a network you can rely on.

Since popularity of LPG as motor fuel is on the rise, two more outlets are planned for 2018, including one in Gozo. The number of approved installers, now comprising seven conversion centres, is also expected to grow. In light of subsidies of up to 200 euros available to motorists willing to cut their fuel spendings and carbon footprints (extended for 2018), the only way for autogas to go is up. And that's always good news!
