Choosing Dacia Bi-Fuel means enjoying a competitive purchase price and savings on a daily basis. So what are you waiting for?
Dacia is the only manufacturer to offer the Bi-Fuel (petrol-LPG) option across its entire range of internal combustion engine models. Factory fitting of this proven technology to the TCe 100 Bi-Fuel engine is a guarantee of safety and reliability. The length of the manufacturer’s warranty, the service intervals, and boot capacity are identical to the petrol-only version. The LPG tank is fitted beneath the floor of the boot, in place of the spare wheel.
When running on LPG, the New Duster Bi-Fuel emits on average 9.5 per cent less CO2 than an equivalent petrol engine. In addition, it offers a range of 767 miles thanks to its two tanks, with a combined supply of almost 100 litres. This is made up of 50 litres of petrol and a 62 litre LPG tank (50 litre filling capacity). The useful supply of LPG has increased by 16.2 litres compared with the previous generation of the Duster LPG, increasing the range by more than 155 miles.
Behind the wheel, the switch between fuels is immediate and imperceptible. The new petrol-LPG switch, which is more ergonomic and better integrated, can be operated manually by the driver at any time. The switch to petrol occurs automatically if the LPG tank is empty.
Technology that is economical...
LPG engines are affordable and free of unnecessary extras. Take
advantage of a competitive price, without compromising on technology,
and enjoy increased fuel savings.
Benefit from the original conversion and the same manufacturer’s warranty as for the other engines in the range.
Easy to use!
Filling your LPG tank is as easy as filling your fuel tank. With the flick of a switch, you can alternate between combustion and LPG!
Using our LPG technology is as easy as it gets! Switching from petrol to LPG can be done manually, using the switch provided, or automatically when one of the two tanks is empty. A dedicated gauge helps you monitor the LPG tank level. What about refuelling? It's quick and easy, and takes only 2 minutes.
Our LPG vehicles are equipped with two different tanks: one for petrol and one for LPG. When both tanks are full, you enjoy a combined driving range of over 800 miles. More than enough to get you to where you need to be!
Like all LPG vehicles, Dacia Bi-Fuel vehicles allow you to drive freely, without traffic restrictions or pollution alerts. What's more, thanks to the safety features built into the system, you can access all underground car parks.
Filling up with LPG is as simple as adding petrol, with a filler flap and protective cover situated at the rear of the vehicle, on the opposite side of the petrol filler unit. The car can be manually switched between LPG and petrol by pressing a dedicated switch in the cockpit at any time or automatically when one of the tanks is empty.
The adaptation is carried out within Dacia’s factories on the same production line, making sure there are no delays on delivery times and a straightforward single point of contact for any warranty or maintenance requirements.
