There are 2 types of kits :- Conventional (Open Loop, Closed Loop) & Sequential CNG Kits
Go in with Sequential CNG Kit, Lovato & Tomasetto are known to be more popular. Other good brands are :- BRC, Longas and Landi Renzo

You can expect the price of CNG Kit including Fitment as close to Rs. 40,000 for branded one like Lovato & Tomasetto. RC Endorsement charges would be additional

In terms of Mileage - if you getting around 14 Kmpl in petrol, you may expect around 20 Km/kg in CNG, Sequential kits are retro fitted only - you can run car on both petrol & cng

Good thing about Etios with CNG, its boot space is big enough at close to 595 lit, so even if a kit is added - still there is substantial room for storage.

@ Amit

Depends - if its an unauthorized CNG Kit - it can severely impact Engine and Performance Output.
However - if its a branded Sequential Kit and installed correctly by authorized vendor - in most likely scenario - it can go well with Toyota Etios

Hope it help !!

Retro Fitment of CNG Kit

I had purchased a Etios on 31st Dec 2015 . I got a Tomasetto Kit fitted. The vehicle has commercial registration and I had purchased it to attach in OLA/UBER. Everything was fine till 80,000Kms. After that the engine started to misfire (under low rpm) in CNG mode. In petrol mode it was ok. The frequency of this problem was very low maybe one in a week . As the vehicle milleage reached 90,000 the problem increased and it was became persistent during daytime (when ambient temperature is high). At night the problem does not come. After mileage reached 97,000 the issue started to be seen while on petrol mode also. On taking it to Toyota authorized repair center, they said that the CNG Kit has to be removed and Engine head needs to be opened at a cost of Rs.50,000/-. The warranty of the engine is void from the day Retro Fit CNG is installed.

My advice to all Toyota Vehicle owners:

Never go for a retro fit CNG if your vehicle is new. Toyota warranty will be void and the risk will be on you for the life of the vehicle. If the vehicle is old then you can consider fitting of CNG. The money saved from fuel cost will be a fraction of what you will spend on repair costs.

today I visited to Toyota showroom for enquire for new Toyota Platinum Etios. For curiosity I asked about CNG fitting in Platinum Etios but dealer replied that Toyota Platinum Etios/Liva engine not designed for CNG, so don't think for CNG, better to go for Diesel version if want more mileage.

this just for info.

thank you
