Proton has expanded its GEN-2 range with the addition of two dual fuel models, 'ecoLogic' is able to run on either LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) or petrol, offering customers significant savings on their fuel costs as a result.
At around 58p per litre, LPG has become an increasingly attractive alternative following the huge increase in the cost of petrol and diesel. What's more, unlike other manufacturers, Proton ecoLogic models cost exactly the same price as their petrol-only equivalent, so you can reap the benefits of cheaper motoring straight away.
In addition to cheaper fuel, the Proton ecoLogic comes with the same 3 year/60,000 mile total vehicle warranty and three year RAC cover that is offered on all Proton vehicles.
LPG is a by-product of the extraction and refining of crude oil and is therefore a plentiful supply in the UK. In fact, 45% of LPG produced in the UK is currently exported. LPG combustion also produces fewest exhaust pollutants, so as a fuel source it also reduces the car's impact on the environment and qualifies for lower road tax.
With over 140,000 LPG-converted vehicles already in use, the UK has a well-developed refuelling infrastructure. In fact, there are over 1,400 public access refuelling stations nationwide. If you do happen to run out of LPG, the Proton ecoLogic will run on petrol at the flick of a switch, which, with two tanks, considerably extends the range of the GEN-2.
