Article in today's Adelaide Advertiser. Buried deep in the budget is the introduction of an excise on LPG starting at 2.5% from July 2011, increasing to 12.5% in 2015.
Maybe I will be resurrecting the Cruiser aux tank.

Yep, might come as a shock to some however it has been advocated now for many years. Don't really know why though, thought they might reduce it to encourage usage of other sources of energy. Save the planet - something like that.

They have to recoup the money they handed out during the LPG rebate scheme, don't they?

I wonder if it applies to home/ BBQ LPG cylinders? It seems to follow the price of car LPG.

the excise on LPG was set up before the rebate for conversions was announced , but they forgot to mention that , also the cost of conversion
skyrocketed when the rebate came in .

Folks the gradual introduction of and increase to (I think) 12.5% on LPG was first introduced in the first budget of second term of the Howard Government. Only fair I think that the cost of running the country is spread as broadly as possible....and not only rest with those of us who use petrol/diesel vehicles. Only 2 sure things to life and that is you are going to pay taxes and then you die :-)

This was all made public a few years back - even when it eventually reaches 12.5% after 5 years, it's not a lot on 65c really, is it?

doom-mongers have been saying that for years - just look to see how much fuel (all fuels) has actually increased over the years and I think you'll find it's not as much as the hysteria suggests.

Don't get me wrong, they gouge out as much as they can within reason and sometimes beyond reason but an increase of 3.5% p/a over 22 years is "healthy" but not as bad as the hysteria suggests.

Very old news. And a 12.5% increase will bring LPG from it's current 60c/lt (city price) to about 68c/lt.... Still a dam site cheaper than diesel or unleaded.

I think you'll find that it's 2.5 cents per year not 2.5% per year, every year until in reaches 12.5c extra. From 60c p/l to 72.5c p/l is a 20.8% increase
If diesel went from 1.45c p/l to 1.74c p/l (20.8%) would you still love your 100 series??

LPG at .849c per ltr in Far North Queensland and in WesterenQueensland I paid 1.24c per ltr
Where do I have to move to to get it for 62c per ltr?
Previous Federal Governments encouraged us to convert to LPG then they let the oil companies and Woolworths & Coles monopoly thumb their collective noses at the public and the Government by charging what ever they like for it. Woolworths & Coles with their control of the retail fuel industry go to great lengths NOT to supply LPG. Even their new stations do not have the LPG facility built into them. But I guess all Governments are controlled by big business and us little people are just forgotten.
Who ever said that life was not meant to be easy certainly was correct.
