I too have a 1998 Model Old Honda City. In City i get 10 KMPL and on expressway i get 12  kmpl (RPM at 5, Speedo Shows 180) Never have tried driving keeping the RPM Below 3 as advised by the ICHIBAAN Tech for a good average.

I am planning to go in for CNG as i am tired of the long petrol bills.

The people who know the way i drive suggest a LPG cos of my speed.

I am very confused. Someone suggest. What should i go in for.

If possible some good tech in south mumbai.

(Anyone thinks Honda doing an 180 KMS/h not possible i have some clips and stills 2 share)

Hi,

 

I have a LPG kit - Zavoli installed in my City 1.5 Exi AT 1999 model.

 

Running cost - Rs. 4.6 per Km. An average of approx 8.5 on LPG in city. Since mine is an automatic transmission, this is expected. If you compare it with the rate of petrol, works out to 12.5 Kms per lit, which is excellent for a AT car.

 

I personally cannot make out the difference when driving on LPG, as I feel the power is almost equivalent. I am happy with the perfmance. And have done 130 kmh in the city on couple of stretches on the highway.

 

With regards to CNG, yes it is definately cheaper, however I do not have any idea on its performance. You have an option on adding an advancer unit to your car, which supposedly enhances the pick up and overall performance of the kit.

All in all, check your monthly running and if you intend to keep you City for that long so that you recover the amount spend on the kit. If yes, go ahead and install it.

 

It's a savior against the sky rocketing petrol prices. I use only premium in my car as the alternate fuel and the difference between premium and normal fuel is Rs. 5 as of now, which is ridiculous!!!!!

 

Hope this was helpful..

 

Cheers.

I am having a Honda city 1.5 Exi 2000 Type-2 model in mumbai. i've fitted LPG kit to it a year before and have run more than 10000 kms on it, believe me guys it's an excellent choice.

 It gives me 14-15kmpl on highways and 10-11 in city. i've touched a speed of 160+ kmph on gas. engine is still in excellent condition. u jus need to do a servicing after 5000kms nothing else.

 It's the best decision one can ever take to switch on LPG, which is a greener fuel and cost effective in today's sky rockin prices of petrol. running cost on highways is mere 2.5Rs/km.

Honda city is the best car to convert on LPG.  U can enjoy the experience of running the luxury car at very cheap cost. Go for it and save money for other things.
