How to Qualify for Clean Special Fuel Plates

Qualification Criteria

Your vehicle must be exclusively powered by a clean special fuel in order to qualify for this plate. Flexible fuel vehicle engines that do not utilize only a clean special fuel DO NOT qualify for the plates.

The following types of fuels qualify a vehicle for clean special fuel plates:

  • Compressed Natural Gas
  • Electricity
  • Ethane
  • Hybrid Gasoline/Electric
  • Hydrogen
  • Hythane
  • Liquefied Natural Gas
  • Liquefied Petroleum Gas
  • Methane
  • Solar
  • Combination of two types of clean special fuels

NOTE: DMV issues Clean Special Fuel plates based on the fuel type used to power your vehicle and no longer provides or uses as reference a listing of qualified vehicles.
