Throughout the engagement of the stakeholders the sale of the WEGAS has increasingly risen in the first couple of months. From June, 2006, to May 2007 sale has risen from 400 kg to 7000 kilogram. This amount corresponds to 10500 litre of petrol.

Thanks to this the stock of gas-operated motor vehicles from June, 2006 to June, 2007 has arisen from 5 vehicles to 100 vehicles. The share of new permission with this stands in 12 percent in the region. As a comparison: the average national value does not reach even the 0,01 percentage.
