Hi , I need some insight on fitting CNG in Honda City. Its a 2004 model and now its getting a bit expensive due to hike in petrol prices and also its per day running has increased. I have heard a lot about reduction in power and pickup. Will it be a major decrease in power and pick up ? and secondly how about the maintenance and car condition in long run might be for next 4-5 years ?

One more thing.. Is there a good CNG Stations network allover India ?

I would like to know its pros and Cons so that i can take a decision.

Also if anyone can help me in locating a good CNG Kit dealer in Mumbai / Pune will be of great help.

Thanks,
Kishor

Hello Kishore,

CNG Kit in a car definitely leads to loss of some power. Even company authorized CNG Kit on SMT Car and VMT Car leads to loss of power to 110 BHP as against 122 BHP
Now as you raised query -
Will it be a major decrease in power and pick up ?


In 2004, Honda City used to deliver peak power of 90 BHP, now if you put the best Italian Sequential kit in it, you can expect atleast 20% loss of power making it closer to 72 BHP.... The performance and pick up will yes be deteriorated, but if you drive keeping in speed limits and not concerned about the sudden pick-up - installing CNG may not affect you much

For the pros and cons of CNG Kit you may refer this thread on

Hello Chirag,

Expect Power loss to be observant on pickup
In % terms, expect Power to fall by 20% from 69 PS to 58 PS.

Hello,

It was an old query
The update is - we are not recommending CNG Kits in Honda City

Honda City Zx used to come in Idsi Engine vis a vis Present City which is available in IVtec Engine
Present Honda City comes with 118 PS Power with 4 Spark Plug in 16 Valve Engine
But Idsi Engine in Honda City Zx used to come with has 78 PS Power in 8 Valve.
To compensate for lower number of Valve - 8 Spark Plugs were used in.

Installing CNG in IDSI Engine
> There would be Power loss to tune of 15 to 20% - Considering Body Weight of Car and fact that Idsi Engine used to come with (8 Valve) i.e 2 Valve per Cylinder - the car Performance Output and Pickup will be impacted due to installation of CNG

> There been many compatibility issues including Engine Light Illumination, Loss of Throttle response on low rpms - for which Authorized workshops are not providing any input - been CNG Kit in Old City is not recommended by even the Manufacturer end too.

I have a Honda city Ivtec 2011 model and I am interested in Cng for my car. My current run per month is 1000 KM.
Is CNG successful in my car?
I know about power loss, any impact on comfort like jerks or vibration in car?
Should I go with Cng looking at my current run?
I am planning to have sequential kit. Which one should I opt for?
I live in faridabad any genuine and good workshop for this job ?

Thanks in advance!!!
