    cng runs perfectly fine in XLI/GLI
    the only problem which i came to know after a survey from couple of colleagues owning the new xli/gli is u will get the average of CNG of an old shape Altis on cng

    and this fact is very pathetic. new corolla consumes gas like a 1.8 engine
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    i have met various owners claiming their engines got messed up due to gas so am not fully convinced about cng running well in Xlis/Glis. one thing though is that Hasain2005 said ppl don't istall that lambada thing which is the reason. perhaps then, it shouldn't be an issue. vot do you say now Hash?

    My personal experience alongwith couple of my friends' says that if you install CNG in new shape corolla (VVTI) GLI/XLI right from the beginning the valves will give away at around 40,000kms on odo. The solution is to keep the car stock maintain proper service schedule for the first 40,000kms (warranty period) after that if you install CNG there will be no issue and engine will give you good mileage and performance. My friend's corolla (2009) has 120,000 trouble free kilometers on its credit with just a clutch plate, couple of break pads and one set of tyres.

    Thanks Friends...

    My car has done 7000 Kms so i think i should wait for 10000km and then go for CNG....

    I have also check with two Toyota dealers ( TOYOTA GT and TOYOTA RAWAL) there comments about CNG was not very impressive as they told me that they have registered cases of Head and values faults in new corolla just 30k to 40k driven on CNG, but they were saying if you drive ur car atleast 4 to 5 KM daily on petrol then you can delay this work to 100000 km plus millage.

    I have check on landirenzo website, they have different emulators and advancers for different type of Engines, but i doubt in Pakistan they were using the same for every engine.

    Toyota GT gave me hope that if i will install CNG kit from them then they will take full responsibility that my car work fine on CNG, but Engine warranty and rear shocks warranty will be void...

    plus which toyota guys did you get the quote from? is it toyota rawal guys?

    thx mate. The cylinder I have is of Faber, installed 10yrs ago, vetted by hdcp guys to be in excellent condition not too long ago.
    The cng kit reducer is of the vacuum type and works gr8, I guess I'll need only advancer and emulator when converting from carby engine to efi engine.

    Bro I got orig landirenzo with orig emu n adv(tomasetto) with ekc cylinder in my gli 2010 for 38k n mashaAllah running perfect.

    There are 2 options aval in the system.
    one is u start the car on ptrl and it will keep running on ptrl untill the temp guage start moving up as soon as it cross the C mark the car convert to CNG or if u want to save ptrl thn just slightly hit the gas padl and it will switch to cng

    2nd option is that it will remain running on ptrl untill u hit 4000 rpm.

    MashaALLAH drive is good on CNG in new corolla so go for it but I insist that get the orig stuff and from an authorised dealrship of landirenzo,
    also fill the landirezno warranty form n get it stamped from the dealer. it comes with one year warranty.
    My dear ALLAH when I loose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointment and Your plans for my life are better than my Dreams.

    toyota guys are weird to be honest. in 2004 or so when my father spoke to them of switching my ex Corolla `97 to cng, Toyota Isb strongly opposed it. even their service logs read, "NOTE: cng is harmful for cng engines." later they were offering it at Rs. 50000 whereas outside market's rate was Rs. 36000 max.

    its not the current toyota engines in particular, its the difference in valve technology that makes cng tougher on the engine in the early days. When the valves and everything else has a snug fit after a few thousand km on petrol (a liquid fuel), cng runs absolutely fine without harming the engine.

    bro, i am not comparing the 2 cars, city and XLI here in general.
    i am just saying the new city gives way better consumption/average then the new corolla. full stop

    the survey and information i collected says the new corollas(1300 cc) gives cng average of old shape Altis on CNG

    as far as the valve thing is concern, all the people i know with corolla + cng, have low mileage cars running fine so far. but if this is right, they will be getting a very very bad suprise

    p.s i know the old shape corolla was a gem on cng(but without brakes)

    Just heard for low mileage on the new Corolla mostly while some persons came with some sub-standard installation and had serious issues, i think if with Original Kit and Good Expert Installer and good CNG Station you can enjoy it on CNG but one thing that in current condition i dont think so CNG is still a wise decision as now Investement reovery of CNG kit will not be easy.

    If you sum up at the end you will have same result as runing on Petrol while having the Car Warranty.

    cng will work fine with every car provided that a good kit is used, it is properly tuned and gas pressure is gud. coROLLA is no exception
