TGI/TSI EcoFuel stands for the combination of a standard natural gas powerplant with the innovative Twincharger technology. The bivalent and quasi-monovalent TSI EcoFuel engines will run on both natural gas and petrol. In order to tap the full potential of natural gas as a fuel, the engines are modified by means of various measures and optimally adapted to run on natural gas:

- A smaller turbocharger is used in conjunction with the compressor.
- The intake manifold is provided with additional gas injectors.
- The catalytic converter is modified.
- The engine management system is completely revised to operate on natural gas and petrol.

Added to this are other components required to supply the fuel:

- A high-pressure controller
- The specific gas rail for supplying the injectors
- And further safety-relevant components
