The Balanga City government announced on Friday it was planning to give incentive worth P5,000.00 to first 200 tricycle drivers who are applying for conversion of their units to LPG fuel.

City Mayor Jose Enrique S. Garcia III said the program is aimed at encouraging tricycle drivers to shift from gasoline to liquified petroleum gas (LPG) as fuel to their units. Garcia admitted though that the shift from diesel or gasoline to LPG will still be governed by government regulations for safety concerns.

“Ang sa atin paghahanda lang ito,” the mayor said.

On December 21, the LPG refilling station in Balanga City will be inaugurated. The station’s facilities were donated by the Liquigaz, an LPG company based in Mariveles town.

Garcia expects that by December a good number of tricycle units shall have been converted to LPG fuel.

“Hind bababa sa 300 tricycle units ang makoconvert sa loob ng isang taon,” he said.

The use of LPG fuel in tricycle and other motor vehicles is now being propagated in Metro Manila and other parts of the country as amove to lessen pollution.
