In the UK, all brand cars will receive the new Bi-Fuel option.

Dacia has added a new dual-fuel transmission option to its UK lineup, making it the only major manufacturer to officially offer LPG vehicles.

The new 1.0-liter Bi-Fuel 100 turbocharged engine can run on either gasoline or liquefied petroleum gas, which, according to Dacia, provides “lower fuel costs, lower emissions and higher productivity without sacrificing quality.” It is available in each of the company’s models: Duster, Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Logan MCV and Logan MCV Stepway.

At Sandero, the smallest model of the company, it is stated that the new engine has a consumption of 5.91 liters per 100 kilometers in the WLTP cycle and will reduce CO2 emissions by 9% when running on gas – with a capacity of 116 g / km. Meanwhile, the Duster SUV will consume an average of 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers and will produce 129 g / km CO2.

It is expected that the Sandero Stepway with the Bi-Fuel option can save the average driver about £ 594 per year, while gas prices in the UK are currently about half that of gasoline and diesel. Around 1,400 gas stations in the UK currently sell LPG

. Models equipped with an alternative transmission are visually identical to their counterparts with traditional fuels, but instead of a spare tire, a new tank for liquefied petroleum gas made of high-strength steel is installed, which means that the luggage compartment is not affected. A button on the dashboard switches between gasoline and LPG, offering a combined range of up to 998 km.
