I believe that the criteria is that the car be under 5 years old (used to be 4) and the type of car has to be approved, which basically means that they test a converted car to determine the reduction in emissions, the level of grant being dependant on the percentage reduction. Last time I checked, I think that no Saabs were listed hence no grant .Originally posted by deeks:
[qb]watched 5th gear the other week they mentioned that there were grants avalible for gas conversions but did not give any of the required criteria[/qb][/b]
Vadonald, how about one of the following:Now if Saab did a diesel with good BHP and good MPG, I'd be sorted - come on Saab, VW has done it. [/b]

[QB]Confirmed, ours never drops below 41mpg, however it does use oil (this is normal according to Saab). I do prefer my 9000Saab 9-3 2.2TiD 126BHP/280Nm (124mph max, 0-60 in 10.1 sec, 40 - 60mph 6.3 sec). Not sure of MPG, but it's around 40mpg.
