Self Study Program 528 – The Natural Gas Drive in the Golf Golf Estate TGI BlueMotion

VAG SSP 528. For the first time a Golf engine will combine natural gas drive and direct petrol injection. It is equipped with a EA211 1.4 l, 81 kW TGI* engine. Apart from the adaptations to the natural gas drive, it is identical to the 1.4 l, 90 kW TSI engine.

The new EA211 engine family combined with BlueMotion means that the Golf TGI requires only 3.4 kg/100 km of natural gas with the 7-speed dual clutch gearbox and 3.5 kg/100 km of natural gas with the 6-speed manual gearbox. This equates to CO2 emissions of just 92 g/km and 94 g/km respectively.

* The designation “TGI” is protected by trademark law by Volkswagen and denotes engines with natural gas drive.

On the following pages, we will introduce you to the design and function of the natural gas drive in the Golf/Golf Estate TGI BlueMotion. You will find further information on the topic of natural gas in Self-study Programme no. 262 “Natural gas – an alternative fuel for motor vehicles”; no. 373 “EcoFuel Natural Gas Drive in Touran and Caddy” and no. 425 “EcoFuel Natural Gas Drive with 1.4 l 110 kW TSI Engine”.
