    Default Need Expert reviews regarding CNG in Civic 2013

    Salam Dear pakwheelers, hope you all people are fine.

    My cousin have civic 2001 on petrol, and he's willing to buy a new car also, and he have price range of 23 to 25 lacks, and he's confused between two cars, i.e Civic 2013 and Pius Hybrid 2010.
    And he need my help to solve this confusion.
    Prius.
    He's thinking to buy Prius because It's economical car and have lots of awesome features, Better average, large trunk size and many more, and the thing which we all know that JDM cars body is very solid, but he's afraid just because of 2 reasons.

    1) The traffic of Pakistan, if unfortunately some Bike rider, or Taxi driver (Ghareeb admi's) will hit so can we find Prius lights, Bumper etc...?

    2) There are very less chances of mechanical and technical problems in JDM fresh cars, but in case of any technical or mechanical problem, can Prius be repaired here easily.....?

    2013 Civic 9th gen.
    As we know, its local assembled and every thing is easily available here and he also Love Civic, but as compare to Prius its fuel average is half, now because he's buying 2nd Car so its lil bit difficult to afford fuel of both cars, so he have decided if he'll buy Civic, then he'll install CNG Kit in it, but He's confused in 2 things.

    1) We heard few months ago that now only less then 1000cc cars are allow on CNG Stations to buy CNG. Is this right? or can we buy CNG without any issue?
    2) Civic 9th Gen. have fuel average of 13-15 Km/L (depend on Driving behavior) if we consider its average 14Km/L then cost of per Km is Rs. 7.2, What if we will install CNG Kit in it? (There is no Need to shy, in all over the world CNG in going very common)

    NEED EXPERT REVIEWS

    Like my Alto Gives 9 Km/L with AC (Patrol) means cost/Km is Rs. 11.4
    And it gives 135 Km on full cylinder which have 9.4 Kg Gas. Means cost/Km is Rs. 4.6
    Difference of price is Rs 6.8/Km between Patrol and CNG.
    I just want to know that if we install CNG KIT in 9th Gen. Civic, will it give the price difference like my Alto gives?
    According to my Common sense (Don't know this is right or wrong)
    Alto Gives 9Km/L and Civic give 14Km/L
    So civic should have to Give better average then Alto on CNG?.?
    Am I right or Wrong?
    Please Solve this confusion and Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Its fine, but run it on petrol every now and then. Petrol will lubricate the valve seats and prevent them wearing down. The USDM Civic NG comes factory fitted with hardened valve seats, which are resistant to wear and tear. Petrol engines don't have them.

    Just for comparison, my Cultus has been run most of its life on CNG. Now at 310k km, its wet compression is 180/170/120 psi (it was measured back at 290k km). It also burns oil. On the other hand, my dad's Civic 2004 has been run mostly on GT road and motorway on petrol, with CNG mostly used in city. At 250k km, it runs fine, almost as good as it did when bought at 100k km.
