Investing in clean auto fuel is vital to helping the country lower its carbon footprint.

This was highlighted by the Chief Executive of Fiji Gas, Hans Reiher, during the opening of the 20th auto gas refueling station at the Rars Service Station in Waidamudamu, Nakasi, this morning.

Reiher says due to the population size in the Suva/Nausori corridor, they decided to invest in this service station.

The Fiji Gas Chief Executive says LPGs are a healthier option for the environment.

“With LPG emitting 20% less carbon and a significant reduction in black exhaust soot, LPG as a fuel for vehicles just makes sense for our health and the health of our environment.”.

Riehers says so far they have made over $3 million in investments throughout Fiji in LPG stations.
