  • Most Economical Way to Run a Car. Running Costs are close to Rs. 2 per to Rs 3 per Km (CNG Improves Mileage and is also cost effective as against Petrol or Diesel)

 

  • Installation Cost of CNG Kit is Much Economical as against Buying Diesel Car where higher road tax on Diesel Cars is there along with some cities having capping on plying Diesel Cars (Like in Delhi, NCR you can not drive Diesel Car beyond 10 yrs)

CNG Kit Types

There are 3 Types CNG Kits available for Sale in India -

  • Open Loop Close Loop (known as Conventional Kits) - outdated and not recommended

 

  • Sequential CNG Kits - Recommended

If your Car Make is 2009 and Onwards - in most likely scenario - Sequential CNG Kits are considered superior and are Compatible. Pre 2009 Cars - basis Car Model & Engine Type has both Conventional and Sequential Kits recommended
