GasCab for drivers
You've seen one of the repowered Cabs or you've had a leaflet, we'll try to explain exactly what it is and what it can do for you.
Euro 6 is the current emission standard that every new vehicle must meet in order to be registered. With legal Air Quality limits being breached across the UK, councils have been tasked with reducing the levels of harmful emissions. GasCab is a retrofit solution for TX taxis, enabling them to emit fewer emissions equal to (or better) than newly manufactured vehicles.
We repower vehicles through engine replacement technology. We completely remove the diesel engine and install a
brand new Euro 6 Petrol—LPG engine in its place. In addition to the engine, the new fuel systems are fitted alongside a new engine control unit (ECU) and wiring harness.
The engine we use for the repowering is a GM Vauxhall 2.0L turbo-charged petrol engine. This Ecotec engine is modified to run on LPG and optimised for use in a Cab. It is a current engine as featured in the Vauxhall Astra VXR. The original power output of 280Bhp is downtuned for use in the Cab.
LPG or Liquefied Petroleum Gas, the 3rd most used automotive fuel globally, is one of the cleanest burning fuels in the world. It is a by-product of the refinery of Crude oil and Natural Gas.
Bio LPG was introduced in 2018. Distilled from renewable sources, Bio LPG further lowers the carbon footprint.
The engine is supplied with a 2 yr, 80,000 miles parts and labour warranty. The warranty is carried out by our Local service centers.
Proper maintenance carried out at the required intervals is essential for the life and performance of your engine. Our engine requires a Oil and filter change at 12,5k miles intervals. The spark plugs should be renewed at 50k miles.
The LPG system requires a filter change to be carried out together with the oil change.
