and i gues current price of cng is about Rs27.90/kg(approx)

as you mentioned your car is out of warranty then there is no problem in getting cng and as far i know there wont be any effect on engine but yeah you might feel difference in pick-up but after all its all about cutting costs and nobody is going to race around in city traffics especially of mumbai...Wink

Hey Chirag,

Excellent decision on your part to go for the cleaner, greener and cheaper fuel. My answers in bold as below

  • Places in mumbai where I can get CNG Kit Fitted - almost all pumps in mumbai have cng
  • Recommended CNG Kit - italian ones - dealer will help you
  • Prices for the Kit - not more than 25k inclusive of installation and R/C attestation. Also bargain for a full tank of CNG!
  • Warranty on the Kit - 1 year minimum, some dealers provide more. Ensure u have it in writing
  • Safety Factor - No issues about this
  • What is Lambda Kit and wht is the purpose of it? Is it mandatory as per RTO rules - Its for reducing performance loss. Not mandatory, but better to go for it.
  • Current Prices of CNG - 32 bucks in Amchi Mumbai. Aint that a lot cheaper than petrol!
  • Does CNG affect the Engine in say next 50,000 KM from now on.. does it ask for more maintainence cost - burning CNG heats the engine faster, so ensure that fluid levels are checked and topped up more frequently than the petrol run.  Fuel injectors may need more maintenance (read cleaning). Maintenance cost will increase a bit but its nothing compared to the fat savings you will have. Not only that, but you will also have a cleaner conscience considering that  you are doing your bit for mother earth. 
  • Hope this helps!

    All the best!

    No. Spectra wont do it. Sagar or Shaga auto gas.

    Both of them are good in customer service.
