At the Brussels Motor Show, a new modification of the Romanian version of the Dacia Duster crossover, working on gasoline and liquefied gas, debuted.

Dacia Duster received a three-cylinder TCe 100 Eco-G, running on gasoline and liquefied gas. The dual-fuel powerplant, which debuted on the Duster crossover, will be used by Renault Sandero, Renault Sandero Stepway, Renault Logan and Renault Logan MCV. In essence, the engine is a dual-fuel version of the 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine TCe 100 introduced by Dacia in 2019.

Unlike conventional ICEs, the Eco-G option provides more torque while saving fuel and CO2 emissions. A car equipped with such a power unit has two fuel tanks for each type of fuel, and its driver can switch from gasoline to gas and vice versa with a special switch from the passenger compartment. The liquefied gas tank made of high-strength steel is located on the spare wheel, and when the gas tank is empty, the system automatically switches to gasoline.

    Dacia guarantees that, unlike most methane vehicles, Eco-G models will gain access to underground car parks thanks to the safety features built into the system.
