New LPG Golf Plus BiFuel Now Available in Europe

Volkswagen’s LPG Golf Plus BiFuel (earlier post) is now available for order in Europe. factory-built for LPG use, the Golf BiFuel can deliver a reduction of more than 10% in CO2 emissions.

In LPG mode, the 1.6-liter 72 kW / 97 hp four-cylinder engine in the Golf BiFuel consumes 9.2 liters of LPG per 100 kilometers on average (149 g/km CO2). The autogas tank (4-liter effective volume at storage pressure of 8 to 10 bar)&madsh;with its space-saving installation in the spare wheel recess&mash;and the 55-liter gasoline tank support a theoretical range of more than 1,100 kilometers (684 miles). In pure LPG mode, the car’s range is about 420 kilometers (261 miles).

The factory-installed solution for the new Golf Plus BiFuel is more advantageous than an LPG conversion, VW says: the vehicle has been subjected to extensive endurance testing and undergone crash testing with the LPG tank. Customers receive a full warranty for the entire vehicle, LPG components included.
