Owner: Pandaf
Pandamera: 2006 Fiat Panda LPG
Displacement: 1.1 L
Fuel type: other
Transmission: manual
Curb weight: 1840 lbs
Coefficient of drag: 0
Frontal area: 0 sq.ft.
Instrumentation: ScanGauge
Description: Not sold in the US, although it basically has the same platform as the 500. Made by sturdy Polish workers in the Fiat plant in Tychy. It was the least powerfull engine available from recent Fiat cars, with 54 hp. The engine is a very simple but reliable and longlived 8 valve SOHC. The block is non-intervention so no chance of ruining the engine should the timing belt ever break. Engine picks up quite well at low rpm, but doesn't like high rpm very much. Brand new LPG system was already in it when I bought it, lucky me. On LPG it uses about 1 litre for every 16 km in winter, and 18 km in summer.
I really like its overall simplicity, no AC, no electric windows, no automatic doorlocks. That means it's light and that means it's cheap in road taxes, as road taxes here depend on the weight of the car.
It does have 2 airbags and ABS.
