Subsidies in the energy sector and pollution caused by fuel consumption in major cities of Iran has led to the adoption of Hybrid vehicle (dual) policies to burn cars in Iran. Considering the costs of dual combustion policy and not receiving the desired output, other strategies such as creating a fuel basket or developing CNG vehicles should be considered. Secondly, in the process of dual combustion vehicles, complementary policies Also benefited. The policy of dual-burning cars has been implemented and pursued in the country for several years. Huge energy subsidies and severe fuel pollution in the country’s major cities, which have made it difficult to manage the two, are the government’s main drivers for implementing this policy. Due to the many effects of fuel on environmental issues, in this paper, after expressing the advantages and disadvantages of gas and dual-fuel vehicles, using the method of system dynamics, which is one of the methods of modeling dynamic and social systems, a dynamic model in We find out how dual-fuel vehicles affect energy consumption, energy subsidies and pollution by vehicles, and then by implementing this model in simulation software, we show that the continuation of this policy with the current trend is not responsive in the long run and can be a source of problems.
