Municipal authorities conducted tests of this innovation which showed that a product of Neftekamsk car maker, among other things, saved  960 roubles a day. The engine of the Bashkir bus runs on methane which price level in Russia is limited legislatively and cannot exceed 50 % from the cost of gasoline А-80. Possibly, it was this circumstance, that played the main role in the commission conclusion: the bus was recommended to Novosibirsk carriers.
