A thermodynamically consistent particle-based model for fluid dynamics with continuous velocities and a non-ideal equation of state is presented. Excluded-volume interactions are modeled by means of biased stochastic multiparticle collisions which depend on the local velocities and densities. Momentum and energy are conserved locally. The equation of state is derived and compared to independent measurements of the pressure. Results for the kinematic shear viscosity and self-diffusion constants are presented. For fixed density, a caging and order/disorder transition is observed with increasing collision frequency.
