Once it is launched, Vauxhall claims it will provide the biggest choice of alternatively-fuelled vehicles of any manufacturer. The Zafira will join conversions of the Astra, Vectra, Omega, Astravan and Combo van. Details were revealed by David Sellors, Vauxhall's alternative fuel vehicles sales manager. He said: 'The dual-fuel option will be available with the 1.8 and will have great fleet potential but it's a long way off. The conversion must be type-approved and meet all safety requirements.'
Vauxhall is also working on manufacturing a single petrol/LPG tank. At the moment, the fuels have to be stored in two separate tanks, which reduces space and increases vehicle weight. This single fuel tank could make its first appearance in the LPG/petrol Zafira.
