FG set to convert cars, generators to run on gas after hike in petrol pump price

The federal government has said that from October it will begin to convert cars and generators so that they can run on gas following the recent increase in the price of fuel.

Timipre Sylva, the minister of state for petroleum, who disclosed this on NTA’s ‘Good Morning Nigeria’ on Monday, September 14, said the move to cushion the effect of the hike.

While noting that this will be done free of charge for all Nigerians, Sylva added that the government’s actions would reduce carbon emissions.

The minister went on to note that the conversion will also demand for petrol since cars are capable of running on both gas and premium motor spirit.

Sylva further explained that the government will encourage Nigerians to convert their cars to dual-fuel since gas is cheaper. The government is going to monitor the process.

He said:

 “We are going to convert ‘I better pass my neighbour’. So, you will have a situation where in your house, your gas cylinder will be connected to your generator and cooker. So, you don’t need any other fuel apart from gas to run your generators.

“It will become cheaper and cleaner. Of course, our carbon emissions will actually reduce and we are expecting to gain some money from climate change (sic) for reducing our carbon emission. This is going to be a policy direction that will create a lot of opportunities.”
