Modifications get been made to enable this locomotive, which is based on an existent closure from the orbit, to conform mechanically to this eccentric of fire. The almost famous changes fear the fire cooler, fire scheme, injectant scheme and burning chambers.
Contingent commercialize, an LPG adaptation of the 1.2 16V is uncommitted. LPG (Liquified Oil Gas) is cleanse and stinting, piece engines which run on this typewrite of fire breathe fewer pollutants than an tantamount gasolene locomotive, and CO2 emissions are standardized to those of a diesel.
