Opel has extended its range of LPG versions to nine models with the introduction of the Zafira Tourer.

Powered by the company’s popular 1.4-litre turbocharged LPG ecoFLEX engine, which produces 103 kW (140 hp) and 200 Nm of torque, the LPG Zafira Tourer consumes 8.6 litres of fuel every 100 kilometres, emitting 139g/CO2. For comparison, the petrol equivalent needs 6.7 litres, with a CO2 figure of 156 g/km, but LPG is priced at around .76 euro per litre whereas high octane petrol would set you back 1.60 euro.

Opel engineers convert the vehicle to run on liquefied petroleum gas by strengthening the engine’s valves and valve seat-inserts, revising the ECU software and adding a 60-litre tank beneath the car’s floor. A maximum range of around 650 kilometres is possible on LPG alone, with that figure rising to 1,500 km if the petrol tank is also utilized.

Pricing in Germany starts at 27,050 euro (inc VAT).
