It is compressed natural gas mainly composed of methane. It is used in automobile sector as alternate fuel. It is environment friendly.

  • a.   Environment Friendly: CNG is clean fuel. Natural gas produces very less hydrocarbon emissions than petrol.
  • b.   Clean Engine: CNG is good for car engine. Spark plugs and converters remain good in CNG as there is no carbon leads.
  • c.   Ease of Use and Flexibility: Car runs on both CNG and Petrol. So its option for petrol.
  • d.   Lubrication: It requires less lubrication.
  • e.   CNG is Safer: CNG is safer than petrol and diesel. CNG gas cylinders are safer and stronger.
  • f.   CNG is Economic: CNG is cheaper than petrol.
  • g.   Mileage: Mileage in CNG is higher than Petrol
  • a.   Maruti Suzuki cars : Wagon R, Alto K10, Alto 800, Estilo, Zen, Omni Van, Esteem, Ertiga, Eeco, Swift, Celerio, Ritz, Dzire, SX4 etc
  • b.   Hyundai cars : i10, i20, EON, Xcent, Elantra, Sonata, Santro Xing, Verna
  • c.   Honda cars : Brio, Amaze, City, Mobilio.
  • d.   Tata Cars : Indica Vista, Tata Manza, Indigo eCS, Indica eV2, Sumo, Tata Nano, Tata Safari, Zest
  • e.   CNG Kits can be fitted also on : Skoda, Chevrolet, ford, Volkswagen etc.

In regular or conventional CNG kit, the CNG reducer supplies the CNG gas to the engine through a locally made Air Gas Mixture. If CNG gas goes off while driving, then we have to change manually to petrol.

Sequential cng kit, new technology, has separate CNG ECM and separate injectors next to petrol injectors. This system has a software design, which allows selection of fuel change, Time, Temp. and changeover RPM also. If CNG gas goes off while driving, the car automatically comes on petrol.

CNG cylinders are designed and built in such a way so as to withstand high pressure. The maximum pressure in a CNG cylinder is up to 200 bar. CNG cylinders are safe as they are manufactured as per specific requirements and tested before use, in accordance with international specifications and standards, and are duly approved by the Chief Controller of Explosives (CCoE). Moreover, they are provided with a pressure relief device (PRD) that consists of a fusible plug and a burst disc that ruptures in case of extremely high pressure and temperature.

CNG cylinders are manufactured from a special steel alloy and are seamless in construction. Their compact size allows them to easily fit into a small car. An empty CNG cylinder with a 50 litre-water-carrying capacity weighs 48 kg (approximately), and has a length of 835 mm and a diameter of 316 mm. The 50 litre capacity cylinder is the one most regularly used in CNG kits but cylinders with 45 litre, 55 litre, 60 litre and 65 litre capacity are used as well.

Every 3 years CNG car owner should hydro test cng cylinder.

No. It doesn’t require servicing. Once it is tuned by mechanic no need for service. Only you have to hydro test CNG cylinder every 3 years as per government rule.

Yes. CNG is absolutely safe. It is lighter than air. When it leaks instantly it disperses in air. This property makes it safe fuel.

Electronic management system is installed as a part of cng kit in cng vehicle. This system indicates CNG level in your vehicle.

Yes. There will be an automatic changeover cng switch in sequential kit.

No. CNG does not have any known harmful effects on your vehicle. It doesn’t contain carbon leads so increases your spark plug and engine life. CNG is in the form of gas. CNG doesn’t disturb the presence of lubricating oil in the engine, and reduces chances of wear and tear.

There are two types of CNG kits.

  • 1. Regular / Conventional CNG kits
  • 2. Sequential CNG Kits
  • Popular CNG kit* brand names are

  • 1. BRC gas kit
