The Diesel and Alternative Fuels Grants Scheme (DAFGS) was intended to provide assistance to regional areas to reduce the cost of diesel and certain other fuels used in transporting goods and passengers, and to extend the Diesel Fuel Rebate Scheme (DFRS) to additional activities and other specified fuels. In addition, it sought to allow the full rebate to activities receiving only a part rebate. Fuel grants for eligble users were indexed on 1 February 2001 and were: - compressed natural gas (CNG) 12.617 cents per cubic metre - liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) 11.925 cents per litre - ethanol 20.809 cents per litre - diesel 18.510 cents per litre
