Volkswagen Touran Owners Manual: Natural gas

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Natural gas quality and consumption

Natural gas is available in two grades: H-gas and L-gas.

H-gas has a higher calorific value and a lower nitrogen and carbon dioxide content. The higher the calorific value of the natural gas the lower the levels of consumption.

The calorific value and the nitrogen or carbon dioxide values may, however, vary within one quality group. For this reason, the vehicle consumption may vary when using natural gas of the same quality.

The vehicle engine management will automatically adapt to the different natural gas qualities. Both natural gas qualities can therefore be mixed in the fuel tank. You do not need to empty the tank before refuelling with a different grade.

Ignoring the smell of gas in the vehicle or when refuelling can cause serious injuries.

Have the natural gas system checked regularly according to the service schedule by a qualified workshop.
