Planning to buy a Mini SUV, Tata Nexon or Maruti VItara Brezza (Petrol) around Diwali when they are expected to launch in India.

The engines for both however are Turbocharged 1.2 Litre 89 Ps and 1.0 Litre 110 Ps respectively as per the current leaks.

Coming from a family who have used CNG vehicles for over 20 years, looking to understand the feasibility, risks involved and ease of upgrading the vehicle to a Sequential CNG kit. Since the Warranty will be void once I am done I am very much worried about a complete engine failure.

Kindly share some light on the same as very limited results seem to be available online.

Hello,

To tell you - though CNG Kits are been fitted even on cars like BMW and Benz Petrol Engines
With Original Performance CNG Kits from Brands like Lovato, Greco, Landirenzo, Brc etc including tuning, high quality harness and lightweight cylinders - there are luxury cars been driven on CNG and as claimed by CNG Kit Fitters - these luxury cars are running fine.

So - technically yes its possible to install CNG Kit even on Turbo Petrol Engines
Though to disclaim we have not met in any luxury car owner sharing his experience on CNG Kit Compatibility.

Fact is -
> it requires a specialized expert who deals in CNG Kit Finesse in Performance cars - the Systems designed in Turbo car are much different than regular models and only if you get some previous owner recommendations - then only go in for Kit Fitment

> The Probability of compatibility issues (RPM Mismatch, Engine Light, Jerks) is much higher and in event of any gap left - you will end up with not only warranty get nullified, but also the experience and joy of new car may be lost

If at all - you feel to go in with CNG - its recommended to atleast wait for first 2 years till the time warranty remains and may consider fitment of CNG - post same only - only after finding an expert who has a repute on cng kits in performance cars

Thanks for the quick response.

As mentioned I am looking to wait it out for several months and get reviews and updates from Owners who have converted to CNG in such vehicles before I proceed. I will check with local CNG experts first and then the Owners who might have worked on Tata Zest/Bolt for a rough estimate and take it forward from there.
