Installing CNG doesnt harm your engine, contrary to what people think.
The modern CNG kits are fitted with lambda and other advance techniques and so even the loss in power is minimal.
Do expect lower power from your car with CNG which is due to 2 factors:
> An extras passenger in your car (the cylinder weighs about 80 KG)
> Lower power with CNG (upto 20% less power)

But its worth going for CNG since your fuel costs would be lowered to Re.1.25 per KM.

Though Please take the following cost considerations into picture..
A good CNG kit will cost you anything around Rs.30000.
Since you average running is about 500 KMs and assuming you will save Rs.3.25 per KM.... It will take you more than 1.5 Years to "earn" back the 30000 you spend on the kit.

It will only after about 1 year and 9 months that you will start the "Actual" savings...
