The new Opel Corsa continues to expand its range. Now the German utility adds an interesting version to its range, capable of running GLP (Liquefied Petroleum Gas). Based on the Opel Corsa 1.4 petrol 90 hp, this model offers the ability to run on either petrol or LPG, reducing up to 50% kilometer cost compared to an equivalent gasoline model.
When running on gas, the Opel Corsa 1.4 LPG consumes on average 6.9 liters and emits 113 grams of CO2, 13% less than when using gasoline. The average consumption when gasoline is used is 5.2 liters. Putting LPG and gasoline € 0.66 to 1.23 would get a saving of 100 kilometers of 1.84 euros, with a cost of 4.55 euros very similar to the 1.3 CDTi diesel.
LPG tank in the hollow of the spare wheel
As in all bi-fuel vehicles, the driver can switch between running on petrol and LPG . When the second selected mode, the car will always start with gasoline and when the engine reaches a minimum temperature will pass gas. The gas is stored in a toroidal tank located under the boot floor, without affecting the load capacity of 285 liters. Occupies the hollow of the spare wheel, so we are obliged to carry a puncture repair kit. The LPG filler neck is located next to the gasoline.
With both tanks filled, the Opel Corsa 1.4 LPG can reach theoretical range of 1,200 kilometers without refueling. Only available with manual five-Spain relations and the starting price for this Corsa gas is 11,900 euros discount and aid included.
