List of Volkswagen cars on natural gas CNG




Volkswagen offers cars that run on natural gas under the “EcoFuel” label. Compared with a
conventional petrol engine, the EcoFuel power plant running in natural gas mode produces
around 80 percent less carbon monoxide and around 80 percent less nitrous oxides. CO2
emissions are reduced by 23 percent and are below 129 g/km. EcoFuel technology therefore
guarantees access to all environmental zones. Natural gas is currently the cheapest fuel on
the market, because the gas price will enjoy tax relief until 2018. There are no limits to
the use of bio-natural gas. With EcoFuel technology Volkswagen is responding to the
significant increase in demand for eco-friendly and economical cars.

    I am owner of a VW Caddy Maxi EcoFuel. The corresponding theoretical gas consumption should be corrected with around 20 %. My effective CNG consumption in town is around 10 kg/100 km (short trips) and around 6.8 kg / 100 km at the highway (speed 140 km/h ) as shown by the board computer. Of course using High caloric gas. However since the mileage is calculated, let say 5 % incorrect, this turn out to be even higher in reality. Unless one prefer to drive 100 km/h at a flat high-way under perfect circumstances a mileage of 500 km at the highway or around 370 km in the city is more realistic.

      Which kind of CNG are you using with your Caddy? In several countries (Benelux, Western Germany…) there is Low CNG which is low in methane and price and high in consumption and High CNG which is high in methane and price and low in consumption. The number of kilometres given by manufacturers is usually given using High CNG gas.

      Contrary to most LPG cars and many CNG cars, there are no gas filters to change in the maintenance of VW Up CNG version. Therefore no special parts to change for CNG version of the VW Up. However the engine oil must be changed every year or maximum every 15000 km. You cannot use long life engine oil with the CNG version! The reason for changing the oil every year is that CNG keeps oil very clean, but it also oxydates oil more than gasoline/petrol because of the high ignition temperatures. Check your manual, but you can use any standard quality sythentic oil with this engine, but prefereibly 5w30 (or 5w40 if you live in the Mediterranean coast and 0w30 if you live in Scandinavia or Eastern Europe). Other than the yearly/15000 km oil change, the schedule of maintenance of a VW Up CNG, Sear Mii CNG or Skoda Citygo CNG is exactly the same as for the gasoline/petrol versions of these cars. Thus maintenance of these cars is really cheap. Instead, if you live in a cold country with salty motorways, it is important to spend some money or time protecting the CNG system from corrosion as the CNG tanks and tubes are external.
