Description:

Since July 2008, it is possible for gasoline and diesel-powered passenger cars and light trucks to be converted to be powered on alternative fuels, such as ethanol and biofuels, provided a number of technical criteria are met. An inspection regime is put in place to monitor conversions and any conversion requires approval from Sweden’s Motor Vehicle Inspection Company. Owners of converted vehicles benefit from reduced taxes, such as the vehicle tax, and other incentives.
