Dear Experts,

I own a Hyundai Sonata Gold- Petrol- Manual version, 2002 Model, 67K Kms. done.

I have been advised by my relative to put up a Sequential Gas kit of Rohan BRC. Model No: RY-07. I also had a discussion with one of our known Gas kit fitter & he has also supported saying these kits will never harm, effect engine, efficiency & performance of the cars. In addition, the emission, noise & the Cost per Kilometer will come down & i will always be in profit.

The rising fuel prices made me to think on this. What would you suggest on this? Is it worth to make an investment of 40,000/- for installing a Gas kit for my car? I am worried that whatever i will save should not be wasted on additional maintenance & repair works.

Please suggest me as i am thinking to go for it as my approximate usage/ year is around 7000Kms. & at current petrol price i have to pay 10.30/- per km. & the estimated gas usage will slash down the cost by 4 Rs/ Km.
So i can save 4 x 7000 = 28,000/- per annum & i can recover the investment in next 17 months, will this verbal work out will turn practically true? Plz suggest me as i don't want to harm my car.

Hope you will definitely help me out.

Thanks & Regards,
Swapnil Natu.

Though the calculations seems to be simple and cost efective, the risk factor is about the maintenance costs after fittment of the CNG kit.Sonata being premium car, the repair/replacement of spares would be on higher side. However as there is also gains in cost perkm, best thing to do would be to go for the CNG kit. Take all measures to keep it in best of condition.Also in case of increased problems such as lower pick up,low pulling etc you can get the car serviced and use in petrol mode only.

there is absolutely no problem in converting ur car to cng ,im surprised that a senior car expert is not sure about what he is suggesting and his answer is vague as an expert the answer should be exact based on facts rather than what u feel .u are asking someone to put in 40 k and experiment ,i feel its a lack of interest and nonserious approach .cng is a very safe and green fuel and is used world over ,as written earlier also the whole fleet of dtc runs on cng all taxis in delhi ncr run on cng .if it were to harm ur car why would companies like maruti hyundai ,gm produce cng fitted dual fuel cars ,do u think they produce cars without r & d and put their reputation on stake bcoz the technology is the same and they do not fit anything extra which is not available in the open is advisable to fit a good quality cng kit and enjoy savings of around rs4.50 perkm.

Dear Rajiv,

I did not said anywhere to do experiment on ur cost & advice me, i don't feel u know the meaning of advice. Many people will be around every one & some threads can be fetched during such quaries.
Did u read my quary properly? On what basis u r writing it's lack of interest & nonserious approch? Do u understand the basic difference between LPG & CNG?
