Gas is back for cars.
Dacia is launching a new factory-fitted dual-fuel solution across its range of award-winning Duster, Sandero and Logan models, the only manufacturer in the UK to do so.
The all-new 1.0-litre turbo Bi-Fuel 100 engine combines petrol and LPG fuel to deliver reduced fuel costs, lower emissions and improved performance without compromising on quality.
On average, customers could save around £594 per year by opting for the new Sandero Stepway Bi-Fuel model. In the Sandero, the new powertrain is capable of up to 39.8mpg with CO2 emissions as low as 116g/km when in LPG mode, a drop of nine per cent compared to its petrol setting. Meanwhile, the Duster returns up to 35.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 129g/km when using LPG, a reduction of 11 per cent when driven solely on petrol.
The engineering quality and low running costs are further underlined with service intervals mirroring those of the standard petrol and diesel engines with an oil change every 18,000 miles or two years and light annual service.
At the same time, the cost of LPG is half the price of petrol and diesel at 0.63p per litre and is available in more than 1,400 filling stations in the UK, with numbers continuing to grow.
Prices will be from £9,095 for the Sandero Bi-Fuel Essential rising to £15,595 for the Duster Prestige TCe.
