Oh yes, it's distributorship is in Ahmedabad (for entire India), and I agree it is more popular here in Gujarat, therefore.
What I was actually saying about is that the local retrofitter told me 'all that you have said' but added that Lotavo has some ownership problem. Anyway.
pankaj ....i can vouch .. ur retrofitter is a decent guy ...... whenever my local baniya is asked for sumthing he has stopped stocking ..... th fellow gives a stock reply ........... 'woh company mein aag lag gayaa' .... lol

Mr. Kiran Ahire, Pune
What is the role of Local Government For Promoting Such LPG/CNG kits? And what is the difference between Low pressure Vapour With Drawal System and High Pressure vapour with drawal system

Approval for LPG (& CNG) kits/retrofitments are car/model-specific. Check for the ones that are approved for your car/model. Otherwise, both the kits/brands are good - both should cost approx. 17-18K (original italian kits).
i wish to know about CNG kit for ALTO LXI, 2006; IT HAS RUN ABOUT 17000/- KM. I WILL BE SHIFTING TO VADODARA SHORTLY. can you please advise merits of LOVATO over BRC or vice versa for CNG KIT fr this one.
thanks & regards / saboo
also please guide me on probable cost and the reputed stations where i can get the fitting done?
Both are good. BRC is more popular in Gujarat (I understand).
In either case, go for original Italian Kit. It would cost, including retrofitment charges, around 18-20K. The retrofitment will need to be endorsed in the RTO/RC Book. Some fee (RTO) is payable for the same. The retrofitters normally get the procedure done. You will also need to get it endorsed in the Insurance Policy.
I'm not aware of reputed stations / retrofitters.
BRC is, to my knowledge, more preferred kit then any other. Here in Gujarat, it's almost BRC everywhere. Go for the better version costing Rs.18500/-.
Recently in ahmedabad almost all cng kits are availkable in 27k to 28k..is these rates are fare or high???
That 18.5K mentioned by me is for LPG kit.
The figures quoted by you indicate that the prices of CNG kit may have come down by at least 7-8K. I'm not aware about it. Counter-check locally with other dealers. Also ensure that the Kit is original (Italian).
i was told that full conversion to cng is not possible and that there is both petrol and cng option in retrofitting. hence, servicing cost goes up since both petrol engine and cng kit have to be serviced. also, in retrofitting, warranty of the car is void unless you get the fitting done from showroom or authorised center. the cost of a company fitted kit is double that of kit from brc/lovato etc. hence it makes sense only in older cars and not cars within warranty. probability of something happening is extremely low but still, why take a chance with that?
further, if you do long distance travel, then cng will limit the distance travelled. for city its fine. these are my observations.
