For three-four years ago, we sold almost as many secure energy for cars such as electric cars in Sweden. Since then, all the focus has been on electric vehicles. It gets all of the headlines and the elbilsköparna given a big hug by the central government in the form of a miljöbonus of 60,000 dollars.
if you Buy a gas car, you will get something that is almost the equivalent of a pat on the back, a gasbilsbonus of 10,000 dollars. Despite the fact that the gasbilens environmental performance, according to many, it is a superior vehicle. It is, therefore, not surprising that the gasbilsförsäljningen has been stagnating for the past couple of years, while the elbilsförsäljningen have gasat on.
But now, in a turn of events to be on time. After a bottenår by 2018, sales are up by 40 per cent by 2019. The reasons are many.
in the course of the EUROPEAN union, the new test cycle WLTP. When, at the end of the Volkswagen Golf, with gas as a fuel, had all the paperwork ready, stood to the customers in the queue, and the car managed to join in on the green car to ten at the top.
first, a couple of changes to the rules have given gasbilarna benefits. The government decided to allow for both electric vehicles and to secure energy for cars of the highest miljözonen. It's brought a lot of business with tracks in the cityzoner consideration should be given to gas as a fuel.
In december, the expanded gasbilsbonusen to apply to converted vehicles, that is to say, the new cars, which will be converted into a gas before it is recorded.

in the gas sector are included.
"There are a number of myths about the secure energy for cars that need to be killed," says Fredrik Svensson, at the Combustion..
According to him, is the life of gasbilsägare is much easier and more beneficial than most people think.
" Many people think that it is low on gas, and it's hard to fill up on them. In fact, it is so easy to fill up a gas car to refuel a gasoline-powered car. To connect the pump to the nozzle in the car, and then turn on the faucet. Of course!, "he Says.
200 stations, with a gaspumpar (statistics from the Swedish Petroleum and Biofuels institute, SPBI, said: "it is now 2 to 790 of the service stations in ireland). In the province of Småland, where there has been sparse, with the gaspumpar, keeping the business in the build-out of the network.
this is the only place, but gaspumpar the interior of the state of minnesota.
" we have not yet established a presence. However, the majority of the gasbilsägare think that the most important thing is that they are able to drive their gas car in the day-to-day local area. Moreover, gasbilarna a smaller gas tank as a backup, " continues Fredrik Svensson.
Still, many people believe that the range will be a problem. However, modern secure energy for cars has a range of 30 to 40 miles.
the description of the world that only appeals to the choir. In reality, learning is a near-total absence of gaspumpar in the north of sweden – there are only a handful of filling stations to the north of Gävle to be a major obstacle to the gasbilsexpansionen.
the Other myths, as mr Svensson would like to put the scope of the study.
" Still, many people believe that the range will be a problem. However, modern secure energy for cars has a range of 30 to 40 miles, " he says.
This is a one-half of the price of a normal petrol or diesel car can handle on a tank of fuel.
"But it is as easy to refuel a gas car as a petrol car, is the additional fueling is no problem," he Says.
from the operating economy is also an area that looks a lot better to secure energy for cars than people think, says Fredrik Svensson.
" Gasbilarna is not expensive. They don't cost much more than the average conventional petrol car. In addition, you get the 10 000 dollars in the miljöpremie. Compared to electric cars, are secure energy for cars is very cheap, " he says.
it is in the mainstream. They will cost you more to fill up per mile driven than an equivalent diesel car, but on the other hand, is more economical than a petrol car. Today, the stingy dieselbilen of the many is no longer seen as a viable option because of the impact on the environment, appears to be gasbilen as an alternative.
But the purchase price isn't the thing that determines the overall cost of the car. First, whenever a vehicle is sold, and the trade-in value, have gained the show of hands we will know the true cost. And the truth of the matter is that to secure energy for cars have a poor resale value.
as of 2012, with the other being the petrol-powered version of the 20.000 euro more than the gasversionen on the used market. Nevertheless, the gas-powered model is more expensive than the petrol version is cleared, when they were sold new.
the reason for this is that, due to the limited market, due to the limited life span. The tanks have a maximum service life of 20 years. When will the tanks be replaced or the car is to be built, if only to petrol engines. The alternative is to scrap the car. For a lot of cars, it is not a problem, they are discarded until they are so old. However, the vehicles that are approaching the 20 year anniversary is quickly becoming worthless.
Gasbilarnas the major advantage is their environmental impact. In the past, they will be criticised for the fact that they also run on natural gas. While the exhaust is much cleaner when a car is running on gas than on petrol, but natural gas is nonetheless a fossil fuel and therefore increases the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
to move forward. Ten years ago there was a division between the biogas and natural gas are fairly uniform, but to this day, the production of biogas, have been built as well. The share of biogas in the gasmixen is in the day-as much as 94 per cent.
Biogas is methane gas derived from garbage, sewage and other waste products from agriculture and forestry. They will take care of the waste that would otherwise have been a burden on the environment, and takes advantage of it to, among other transports. The benefits to the environment, has created a core group of gasentusiaster, which is lobbying hard for the gasbilarna in the uk and the world.
" It will give more benefit to the environment than electric cars, even if the power is completely green. In the uk we have a system in which almost all of the municipalities are sorting food waste, and we have 200 filling stations selling biogas. It has a huge potential, " said Jan Sharp, co-founder of the Biogasakademin a entusiastdriven lobbying organization.
" the climate problem is a global one. However, many countries can't afford to be electrified. In Argentina, they are building on the 15,000 cars in a month-to-gas conversions, " said Jan Crisp.
He says that it is much less expensive to convert vehicles powered by gas, and points out that it does not affect the power grid. The environmental press is reduced, the leakage of the waste; less transport, and less dependence on fossil fuels. < / span> < / span>
