Reggio Emilia - Frankfurt for under 50 €, travelling by LPG-run Fiat 500

Published on 16 September 2008

Over 850 kilometres, across 3 nations, for a total of 10 hours on the road.

On Monday 15 September, a Landirenzo Fiat 500 “flower”, running on LPG through the Landirenzo Omegas Plus system, undertook a special trial run, which demonstrated the vehicle's great economic and environmental advantages.

Departure: Reggio Emilia; destination: Frankfurt, where Landi Renzo S.p.A., a leading organization specialized in the production of LPG and methane components and supply systems for automotive drives, is taking part with a stand at the 20th edition of Automechanika, a biannual automotive event opening today, 16 September.

The Fiat 500's performance demonstrates the savings that may be generated on long journeys when driving an LPG-run vehicle (in the case of the Fiat 500, savings fell just short of 50%). Not to mention the 134 g/km of CO2 emitted by the car - 10% less than traditional gasoline-powered engines.

The initiative is fully in line with Automechanika 2008, which this year will be focussing on global warming and the solutions offered by the automotive sector to curb the effects of harmful emissions, in particular CO2. The German event, of central importance for the entire sector, features over 4,600 exhibitors and 160,000 professional visitors.
