With the introduction of a new LPG engine (a result of the alliance with Renault) in the new Duster and approved Euro 6d-Temp, Dacia is determined to conquer more and more markets, both European and Italian.

Subsequently, intervention of power a petrol – 50 liters of tank -, others could do 830, without stopping to do it forecast along the route.
Of course, if we do it really journey, we will be ahead of us 1,263 kilometers to go with a "gait rather loose, without asking for LPG or gasoline performance too high, so much at the low – where you feel some worry – as for high regimes: this 1.6 in exchange would give us little noise and the gods consumption very content.
In the area machines of Duster, but there are two diesel with a power of 95 and 115 hp and if you want to wait a few more months, starting in 2019 you can have the Duster with gasoline 1.3 TCe, the same already exists in Renault Scénic and was born out of the cooperation of the French group e Daimler, the German owner of the group Mercedes.
