the LPG Vehicle has a price slightly higher than the gasoline version but lower than the diesel version

Today there is a wide range of car makers offering lpg versions for their cars in Europe , just for one simple reason:
There are more than 15 million of cars running on lpg on european streets not a small market for car producers
The Opel version of Peugeot 2008 will be offered now in a parsimonious version equipped with a small 1.2-liter engine that can run on liquefied petroleum gas. Capable of developing 81 horsepower (60 kilowatts), the three-cylinder engine is connected exclusively to a five-speed manual transmission and is designed for budget-conscious buyers on the look to save money at the service station. The company based in Rüsselsheim - and now part of the PSA Group - has not released any details on the performance of the crossover, but it is likely that it will be a real adventure to overcome the cars given the low power developed by the low-level engine.
What matters most when it comes to LPG-compatible cars is fuel efficiency, so here are all the juicy numbers: in LPG mode, Opel Crossland X will need 8.4 liters in the city, 6.0 extra-urban liters and 6.9 liters in the combined cycle. Switch to petrol and the small crossover consumes 6.8 liters in the city, 4.5 liters extraurban and 5.4 liters combined, with CO2 emissions of 123 grams / 100 km. All these numbers are for 100 kilometers. With the full tank of petrol and the 36-liter LPG tank at 100% capacity, the stylish CUV will be able to travel as many as 1300 kilometers (808 miles) based on the new European driving cycle (NEDC), thus making the bivalent Crossland X ideal for long journeys without having to worry about staying without juice. Opel is about to install the LPG tank where the spare wheel is normally located, so the added hardware will not keep the amount of space available inside the cab. Opel continues by specifying that it has developed a new electronic multivalve system that will improve the low-fuel driving experience compared to the current GPL car harvest thanks to an optical sensor installed inside the LPG tank to better measure the remaining fuel. To guarantee the durability of the engine, engineers have created hardened valves and valve sealing rings.
Another difference between the normal Crossland X and this new version is an extra LED in the dashboard. It stays on when the crossover is driven in LPG mode and switches off automatically when the system switches to petrol mode. Needless to say, the driver will have the possibility to check the range available on petrol and LPG. Available in Europe, where there are about 25,000 filling stations offering LPG, the new Crossland X version is equipped as standard with a reversing camera, head-up display, complete LED headlights and a driver's sleepiness detection system . In Germany, where there are around 6,200 gas stations selling LPG, the model starts at € 21,200 for the edition's finish and € 22,400 for the most sophisticated innovation. If you're looking for a premium car with a bivalent engine, Audi has the G-Tron A4 and A5 models that share a 2.0 TFSI compatible with gasoline, compressed natural gas (CNG) and Audi's e-gas.
