Dacia Launches Duel Fuel Model with Landi Renzo

Dacia car maker is to launch models that can be fueled with both gasoline and LPG.

The Sedan models based on LPG have two options available: the Preference 1.4MPI and the Laureate 1.4MPI models, made in partnership with Landi Renzo, world leader on the LPG market.

According to Dacia, more than 10 million cars fueled with LPG are currently being driven worldwide, of which 150,000 are in Romania. The LPG distribution network numbers more than 25,000 fuel stations in Europe, of which 1,000 are in Romania.
