Can 1.5 Manual variant of Ford EcoSport be converted to LPG?
By: Alan on 13 february 2017
The Ford EcoSport not available in LPG or CNG fuel options. The vehicle is only offered with petrol and diesel guise. Though an aftermarket LPG kit can be fitted but I won’t advise you for that as there is safety issues associated with them and you may also void your warranty. There are also some other disadvantages of fitting LPG, the gearbox will tend to feel and become sluggish, the reason being, as LPG is lighter and for the engine to generate enough power to slot into a higher gear comfortably requires more intake of LPG, resulting in higher RPMS. Hence the gearbox won’t shift up quickly and might hesitate; ending up in feeling sluggish. The Ecosport is a sub-compact SUV, fitting a CNG kit will make the car heavy and also will occupy usable luggage space in the boot.
