Vauxhall cuts cost of bi-fuel conversions on its small vans

VAUXHALL has reduced the prices of liquefied petroleum gas and compressed natural gas bi-fuel options on its Combos and new Astravans by £305 and £340 respectively. The move, announced at the Motor Show, means the LPG/petrol Dualfuel Astravan 1.6i range starts at £11,150, excluding VAT (listed at £11,495 in the October 9 Vauxhall van price guide).

It brings the basic starting price of the Combo Dualfuel Epic CNG 1.4i Hi-torq SE, for instance, down to £9,260, excluding VAT (£9,565 in the latest guide), and the Combo Dualfuel Epic LPG 1.4i Hi-torq SE down to £9,255 from £9,600. The price difference between a conventional petrol Astravan and an LPG Dualfuel version is £1,655. There's the same differential between LPG Dualfuel and petrol 1.4i in the Combo range, and £1,660 extra for the CNG conversion.

The Dualfuel Astravan was officially launched at the show and joins Vauxhall's rapidly growing bi-fuel fleet which, in addition to the Combo, offers fully manufacturer-engineered and warranted conversions for the Astra car, Vectra and Omega ranges through the dealer network.
