VYGON Consulting analyst Ivan Timonin gave advice to car owners on how to save on fuel, three times more. It is necessary to abandon gasoline and switch to gas, while the economic effect will be noticeable even with low mileage in less than a year.
The specialist told RIA Novosti that when switching to methane, there is a benefit not only for enterprises, but also for ordinary motorists. Calculations show that the cost of traveling 1 km for Lada on gasoline is 3 rubles. At the same time, for the option using compressed natural gas, the costs will be 1 ruble. For persons operating KamAZ, the costs will be no more than 18.6 rubles. for 1 km. If we switch to gas equipment, the costs will not exceed 7.9 rubles. The analyst explained that when calculating the economic effect of changing the fuel system, it is necessary to take into account the dependence on the class of the vehicle. In partner centers of the Gazprom CNG filling station network, the cost of re-equipment of a passenger car starts from 85 thousand rubles. The transition to gas for owners of truck tractors will cost about 500 thousand rubles. At the same time, the subsidy for a passenger car weighing 1.8 tons will be 54 thousand rubles, for a main tractor – 294 thousand rubles.
The expert noted that the support from the state covers at least 60% of the costs. The program offered by Gazprom Gazomotornoye Toplivo provides for the possibility of compensating another 30% of the cost of re-equipment of the vehicle.
