Each LPG kit includes a three-year warranty and supplementary insurance policy.

"This streamlined approach to development, distribution and installation has allowed Suzuki Italy to quickly expand their LPG product offering and gain market share in Italy," said Marco Torassa, DOEM Sales Manager of BRC. "Having sold over 5,800 dedicated LPG kits and 6,500 bi-fuel conversion kits to customers, we are excited to continue partnering with Suzuki Italy to provide technology solutions to reduce emissions and meet the growing demand for LPG vehicles."
