Dacia is the first manufacturer to offer LPG versions across the range, available direct from the factory. LPG versions of Dacia Duster, Sandero and Logan MCV models are now available, badged TCe 100 Bi-Fuel. All use a new 1.0-litre turbocharged dual-fuel powertrain, combining petrol and LPG capabilities and claimed to deliver superior torque in LPG mode.
Customers benefit from choice of both LPG and petrol on the move, a combined range of more than 620 miles, as well as CO2 reductions in LPG mode. There are emissions savings of up to 11 per cent for the award-winning Duster, and nine per cent for the Sandero, with up to 2.4 tonnes CO2 saving over a four-year period
Dacia says LPG sales are on the increase in Europe and already popular in many countries, costing around fifty per cent less on average to refill than petrol. Owners benefit from a claimed average of £594 savings on their annual fuel bill with the new dual-fuel system, or nearly £2,400 over a four-year PCP.
The practicality of all models is retained with no impact on boot space despite the additional LPG fuel tank. Servicing and maintenance intervals are identical to standard petrol models with the same three-year, 60,000-mile warranty.
