Fill 'er up in Finland for EUR 89 a month
Finland-headed gas major Gasum Oy has announced that it has extended its "hugely popular" monthly fixed biomethane price at the pump into 2018. Private motorists and drivers of company cars with limited company car benefits have the opportunity to refuel at a fixed price of EUR 89 per month throughout 2018.
According to Gasum, the company aims to grow the use of renewable fuel in traffic in line with Finland’s national climate and energy strategy announced in 2016. There is a growing demand for more renewable energy on Finnish roads and biomethane is one of the most attractive alternatives to traditional fuels.
Gasum’s offer is targetted towards private motorists and drivers of company cars with limited company car benefits and is applicable:
- for new passenger cars (or cars that have been driven a maximum of 6 000 km or that have been used on the road for less than 6 months) ordered from a car dealer,
- gas-driven passenger cars imported privately or by a car dealer and registered in Finland for the first time and which were originally used on the road at the earliest on January 1, 2010 (EURO5) or later and
- passenger cars which have been converted to using natural gas and were used on the road at the earliest on January 1, 2003 (EURO4) or later.
The campaign benefit is valid for 12 months from the date of activating the fixed monthly price. The monthly price applies to refuelling at all Gasum’s gas filling stations in Finland up to an annual limit of around 50 000 km. The EUR 89 monthly price covers an average volume of 190 kg a month evened out over the entire length of the customer’s campaign period. This volume equates to a monthly mileage of over 4 200 km.
Gasum has currently 23 biomethane refuelling stations for motorists in Finland primarily located in the southern part of the country. The company plans to open another 35 stations over the next few years.
