They can be ordered through Vauxhall dealers nationwide, and have a complete 12-month parts and labour warranty. A small, but expanding network of dealers has been trained to service and maintain the vehicles. The dual-fuel cars carry a £2,725 price premium over the comparable petrol-engined models, and the Vectra is available as both a saloon and hatchback, while the Omega as a saloon only. Both come in virtually all trim levels.
The Vectra features a 46-litre doughnut tank in the spare wheel well, giving it a range of 250 miles on lpg, while the Omega has a conventional 68-litre tank in the boot, giving it a range of about 325 miles. A flick of a switch allows drivers to change over to petrol so running out of fuel should not be an issue.
