The new Transportation Law of the State of Hidalgo, Mexico, allows rental vehicles to use compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LNG) as fuel, instead of traditional gasoline.
Pedro Solares Cuevas, leader of the Federation of Steering Wheel Workers (FUTV), says that if the units have the modern equipment, the savings will be 50 percent. “There will be better profits, both for dealers and drivers,” he added.
The union leader reported that before the end of the year, taxis could be providing service with this fuel, which is much cheaper. He announced that there are already companies interested in granting gas equipment on a free loan, in exchange for the purchase of fuel.
Nothing is yet defined, he explained, because there is still a need to establish points of agreement with the Government of the State of Hidalgo, through the Ministry of Mobility and Transport (SEMOT).
