State-run oil and gas firm Pertamina on Monday (17/3/08) introduced liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) fuel products for Rp3,600 ($0.39) per liter, Xinhua reported.

Called Vigas, the fuel product is available at three Pertamina fuel outlets in Jakarta and the number will be increased to nine by the end of the year, said Pertamina deputy marketing director Hanung Budya.

He said the special introductory price might end in April, adding the actual price was Rp4,500 ($0.49) per liter, the same price as state-subsidized gasoline.

Pertamina has targeted to switch about 10% of subsidized gasoline consumption in the capital to Vigas, equivalent to 180,000 kiloliters a year.

Vigas requires the installation of a converter kit costing Rp12 million ($1,301).

I know it's a better, cleaner option, but...

Who the fuck in Jakarta is going to shell out 12 Million for the conversion kit, and more to the point, are they aware that Petrol Stations will require complete "re-vamps" to handle the transfer of the LPG.

I can see no future in this unless, as they have done in China, certain vehicles can only be purchased as "ready to run" on LPG and that Pertamina ensure that adequate facilities are equipped with the ability to supply the fuel.

VIGAS, who thought that one up?

they seem to have enough problems supplying the busway with gas, much less the general public.

and Rp12m for a conversion kit is clearly a rip off.
