Australia To Offer Incentives to LP Gas Switchers

While liquified petroleum gas hasn't really hit the radar as an automotive fuel in the US, it's a fairly popular alt-fuel conversion in Australia, as far as alt-fuel conversions go. And the Australian government, governing a land down under, where beer does flow, men chunder and LPG is in good supply, wants to make it less painful for its citizens to switch, offering a $1,000 cash rebates for Aussies who bought new LPG cars, and $2,000 rebates to those who had their existing cars converted to run on the fuel. No word on whether they're extending the incentive to the shrimp-barbeque industry.
