    NO CNG, no problems
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Well dont go for it then... opt for Manual City and put cng on it.
    Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

    I Won't Recommend CNG for Auto Cars specially on HONDA CVT's......!
    Listen many Tranny fails of City Vario on CNG.....!
    Toyota Auto Trannys work fine on CNG but HONDA...i have listen so much problems and tranny failure....!
    Steermatic....!.....!its much more expensive than any other....!

    @adil
    CNG Kit will not harm you car much. Install the kit and run the car on petrol.
    In this way your family will be satisfied and the engine will also be not ruined.
    On a serious note 1.5 steermatic is too advanced of a car for most CNG installers.
    If you walk away from your car and don't look back, you have bought the wrong car.
