- Can I apply for the reward myself and the money for the program?
No, Bob Smith will apply for the program while you are with our finance team. The amount of the reward will be deducted from the final sale price of the vehicle. We will take the bottom line price we are willing to sell the vehicle and then deduct the appropriate amount of the California Clean Fuel Reward Program from that bottom line price.
