While running on petroleum gas, the 1.4-liter engine makes 87 PS (64 kW) instead of te usual 100 it would have offered. On average, it consumes 6.9 liters of the cheaper fuel per 100 kilometers.

This is Opel's 10th LPG model, after the Corsa (three and five-door), Astra (five-door and Sports Tourer), Meriva and Zafira Tourer as well as the new Insignia (four and five-door sedans, Sports Tourer).
The GM sub-brand is not alone in this. A bi-fuel version of the VW Up! is produced in the Czech republic, while Fiat has also adopted LPG on all its smaller cars.
