I am getting a Skoda 2004, 42 K run at 5.25 Lacs. I am thinking of getting it converted to CNG to lower down the running costs as I drive almost 50 km each day. Will CNG work okay in Skoda and yes, I am aware of little more maintence on oils etc with CNG as a fuel. What would you guys suggest here? Thanks in advance.

Hi Vikas,

On fitting CNG kit, there won't be any change in the maintenance cost of the car but just ask the Skoda people for yourself whether this conversion will be compatible with the car or not, for that open the following link http://skoda-auto.co.in/query.htm  . You need to get this job done from skilled personal as many are not aware of the technicalities of the car you have.

Thank you Anurag,

I tried to submit the query to skoda by the link, there was an error - never mind, I will figure out.

Is it an okay price to buy an Octavia at 5.25 Lacs for 2004, 42 K run?

Thanks,

Hi Vikas,

You are getting the car at a very good price infact its price should be a lakh higher than this, go for it but do check out the details why is this being sold at a low price. Check out thoroughly the whole body from outside, underbody and interiors. If possible, get it checked by a mechanic.

No Karan, I could not get to know anybody running Skoda Petrol on CNG. I am still in dilemma about CNG success on skoda. If it does not works great - then service and spares of Skoda has huge costs. I will post a new topic in Forum.

I am planning to buy Octavia elegance- Elegance feb/2003 model at 3.5 lacs with good condition from 3 owner (i will be the 4th). However due to its average of 10-12 km/litre, I am also planning to get CNG fitted. Please advice:

1.) if this getting CNG is right thing to do on this car as I want low running cost and I drive approx 60 KM/ day. 

2.) Is the price at which I am getting the car is okay?

Thanks/ Raminder Singh

Dear Vikas,

I landed on this website as I was searching if I could convert my Skoda to LPG. Now regarding the price, I just bought my Skoda Octavia Ambiente 2.0L Petrol 5 days back for 5.30 lakh. It's only 12,000 kms run and a early 2005 model. So I think your price is a tad higher. LPG, however, is a better option than CNG as CNG is known to hamper performance quite a bit. But on the other hand, any kind of alternate fuel is a must as my car is only giving bout 5 to 6 kms per liter. Thats quite sucky.
