Hello Rohit,

There is absolutely no issues on CNG / LPG Fitment. Its possible that who so ever complains - may have put in sub standard CNG Kit. Go for Italian Sequential Injection CNG Kit and get it installed from an Authorized Government shop or at a certified workshop. There are many Swift cars running on CNG and are running well.

Hello Mani,

If its a new car - personally i would not be very comfortable on LPG

- Firstly it will void any warranty on brand new car
- Power Loss in LPG Vehicle. You can surely expect loss of power - if you go with alternate fuel - cng/lpg
- LPG price is higher than CNG or Diesel and even average is not too great - There wont be any huge savings in LPG Fuel over the Petrol in running costs
- The car develops a kind of smell inside the cabin sometimes - think of it of a new car having even a slightest gas smell inside the cabin

Last - Even ignore all above - Had there been no impact of LPG on performance - do you think that manufacturer could have missed cashing on LPG in Swift (or even CNG)
When the savings are on lower side in running costs - it would not be advisable to go to alternate fuel at the very beginning when you buy this car.

My recommendation is - If you cant buy a diesel version and your running is high - go for CNG Cars . Some descent options been :-
Wagon R CNG, Hyundai I10 CNG
