- €400 when a petrol-powered Category M1 or N1 vehicle is retrofitted to operate on LPG or petrol;
- €900 when a diesel-powered Category M1 or N1 vehicle is retrofitted to operate with LPG and diesel simultaneously;
- €1,000 when a diesel-powered Category M2 or N2 vehicle is retrofitted to operate with LPG and diesel simultaneously;
- €1,500 when a diesel-powered Category M3 or N3 vehicle is retrofitted to operate with LPG and diesel simultaneously.
Drivers who have modified their vehicle to run on Autogas in compliance with the requirements during the past years and have not received a grant from the applicable grant schemes in the past, may still apply for the grant. For more information, please check here.
