    Default city IDSI on CNG- GREAT!!!!

    I have a 2004 CVT and was thinking of selling it just 2 weeks ago as I couldnt afford the petrol. I had heard stories about how this car cannot be converter to CNG. I decided to take the plunge.
    The car runs great on CNG. I am getting 175KM on a 55Kg cylinder...

    Here is what you need to tell the mechanic

    1. No spark plug advance processor. This is a must. It has 8 plugs and no processor supports that. Makes no difference in timing.
    2. Install Landi Ranzo electronic kit. Comes with built in emulators. It will start on petrol and will switch automatically when you hit 4000RPM.
    3. The air intake has to be 3/4th closed just like any other carburettor car.

    Thats all.

    Jehanzeb.

    Good performance dude (175/55). Well, as u mentioned that no currently available TAP can handle 8 plugs. But appropriate timing advence as per the requirements of cng cannot be overstated. I think multispark capability and its ecu already operate more advenced compared to normal engines.

    I was just doing some research on i-dsi engine and discovered that in economy mode its first plug fires much earlier than in normal engine and second one too later. So its already pretty much advanced. So i think it wont require any TAP at all. Moreover, its compression ratio is 10.5 which is very high and contribute to such a good performance on CNG.

    While discussing economy on CNG as 175/55 or 200/60 we must keep in mind that in which area we are talking about.The gas fields located in Potohar region supply gas which is higher in caloric value thus gives better milage. CNG pumps located in area from Peshawer to Jehlum are the ones having supply from these feilds. My Margalla used to to do 200/50 when filled from Ibd/Pindi area but from Lahore it was only 160/50. Any engineer from oil and gas feilds may explain it better in more technical terms but this is what I and my friends have experienced. So if City is ding 175/55 in Lahore area then it is great but if it is in Ibd then its just needs a little more adjustment. Any body from Sindh and Balochistan could tell us if they also face such regional differences in CNG milage.

    Yes yar that's exactly what happened to my chevrolet when I went to lahore, the CNG that is available in lahore gives very low milage and very poor performance, whereas when you fill up at the CNG stations near pindi, the car comes to respond great again.
