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, it basically means that every new vehicle has to pass this very strict emission test to be able to get registered. With the Air Quality limits being breached, it is put to the councils that their fleets have to be at the forefront of cleaner emissions. GasCab forms part of that solution, being a retrofit technology we can upgrade any TX taxi to emit emissions equal or even better then the newly manufactured vehicles.
Repowering is an engine replacement techno logy. We basically take out the complete diesel engine and install a brand new EURO 6 lpg engine. Alongside with the engine, 2 fuel systems are fitted, a new ECU (engine computer) and a new 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 featuring in the Vauxhall Astra VXR. It's original power output of 280Bhp is downtuned for use in the Cab.
LPG or Liquefied Petroleum Gas, is one of the cleanest burning fuels in the world. It is a by-product of the refinery of Crude oil and Natural Gas. In 2018, Bio LPG has been introduced lowering the carbon footprint even further as Bio LPG is distilled from renewables.
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.
