    It takes hours and hours for the CNG to cool down to normal temp ... Now that I can see the exact temp reading ... I realize it was a good DIY to pump cold cabin air into the trunk ..


    The sensor for cabin is sandwiched between the carpet and the plastic console ... I guess it is getting higher reading than the actual cabin temp ... We will move it to appropriate place later
    sir that what I told you earlier
    you have placed sensors and got more accurate readings, I used my bare hands to have mehsusment of temp, and you are right , it take quiet a long time for the cylinder to cool down and its normal (telling you after my search on net, discussing with frnds and cng mechanics).

    So here the point is that it is normal for people like us who carry nothing or carry just luggage in the trunk which is not going to be affected by cng tank temp but in your case I was worried about those two sound stream amps which were very close to the tank and more than that the DSP which lies just below the tank almost touching it.

    Fans will help to regulate the temperature of the trunk but I will insist that the two amps and dsp should be at a safe distance from the tank , where they do not get any share from the hot cng tank in terms of heat.

    BTW the two sensor's displays are installed so neat and looking great. You previously mentioned to remove the wooden kit becoz something is broken and hence the display will be shifted somewhere else but in my opinion this is the best place for it.

    About the TPMS display unit its placement behind the centre speaker is bit odd and doesnt look good. I failed to come up with a good place for it but I know you can find a good place for it.

    Regards
    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.

    The gas molecules collide with each other and the wall of the tank and hence increase the temperature. when CNG is consumed, the molecules still collide with each other and wall of the tank but now they got bigger area and big distance between two molecules, so there'll be loss of temperature. As the CNG is consumed more and more, the temperature will decrease with it.

    To make it short and understandable

    when the gas is fillled the pressure in the tank increases,molecules collision increases, so temperature increases.
    when gas is consumed pressure in the tank decreases, molecules collision decreases, so temperature decreases.
    its not about consumption, the tank becomes normal after a specific time

    Pressure-temperature law
    ***-Lussac's name is also associated — erroneously — with another gas law, the so-called pressure law, which states that:
    The pressure of a gas of fixed mass and fixed volume is directly proportional to the gas's absolute temperature.
    Simply put, if a gas's temperature increases then so does its pressure, if the mass and volume of the gas are held constant. The law has a particularly simple mathematical form if the temperature is measured on an absolute scale, such as in kelvins. The law can then be expressed mathematically as:
    <DL><DD>Project "Laadli" - My Toyota Corolla GLi 2010 - 8806d57de4586887856dfc016e38b2e3</DD></DL>or
    <DL><DD>Project "Laadli" - My Toyota Corolla GLi 2010 - 1c55bf7126dbb88bc38e7264fdd3040a</DD></DL>where:
    <DL><DD>P is the pressure of the gas.</DD><DD>T is the temperature of the gas (measured in Kelvin).</DD><DD>k is a constant.</DD></DL>This law holds true because temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of a substance; as the kinetic energy of a gas increases, its particles collide with the container walls more rapidly, thereby exerting increased pressure.
    For comparing the same substance under two different sets of conditions, the law can be written as:

    Great explaination. i said keeping the same in mind. but for example if the temp was 40 when CNG is filled then it will not go to 32 without any consumption. It can go to 37-38 not below than that. Hope you understand.

    You pointed right about SS amps being affected, how about installing a heat-resistant sheet between tank and the SS amps? Would it serve the purpose?

    Thank you very much Sharo Bhai ...

    I guess audio upgrades are nearly complete, though nothing can be said about "khujli" ...

    Considering that during normal operation the amps heat up much higher than the cng tank, the best idea was the one implemented in the beginning i.e. Installing two fans that blow air over the amps.

    This solves a mystery in my mind ... After getting the gas filled at night ... I always wondered why the gas pressure decreases by 10-15 percent in the morning. Mechanics use the words "raat ko gas baith jaati hai" ... Now it has become clear that the loss of pressure is due to decrease in temperature.

    I tend to disagree with some part of your post ... temperature does not fall with consumption of gas alone ... when the gas is filled, good CNG pumps fill with chilled gas .. the filling nozzle feels quite cold .. the temperature of the CNG cylinder decreases several hours after the gas stays in the cylinder.

    Pressure-temperature law
    ***-Lussac's name is also associated — erroneously — with another gas law, the so-called pressure law, which states that:
    The pressure of a gas of fixed mass and fixed volume is directly proportional to the gas's absolute temperature.
    Simply put, if a gas's temperature increases then so does its pressure, if the mass and volume of the gas are held constant. The law has a particularly simple mathematical form if the temperature is measured on an absolute scale, such as in kelvins. The law can then be expressed mathematically as:

    <DL><DD>P is the pressure of the gas.<DD>T is the temperature of the gas (measured in Kelvin).<DD>k is a constant.</DD></DL>This law holds true because temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of a substance; as the kinetic energy of a gas increases, its particles collide with the container walls more rapidly, thereby exerting increased pressure.
    For comparing the same substance under two different sets of conditions, the law can be written as:

    <DL><DD>Project "Laadli" - My Toyota Corolla GLi 2010 - 6c6a35ce4507d81696a7a01125715174</DD></DL>
    U forgot to consider that when gas is being consumed, the volume does not remain constant any more. The decrease in temperature is due to the loss of heat to the surroundings. What happens is that when u fill up, gas molecules enter the cylinder at a high speed, rub against each other and heat up due to friction. They remain un a state of high kinectic energy for a while after which they loose the heat to the surrounding and cool down.

    The right equation to choose here would be

    P1*v1/t1=p2*v2/t2

    as v is the volume which should be considered if it is changing

Music is not included in those. The verse cited to relate to music contains the word "fuzool batain" (lahwal hadeeth) ... and fuzool baatain cannot be termed as "Haraam".

    Since I had not seen your posts earlier, and I found that you use the word "haraam" where it does not belong. It is just my suggestion that while using this word, kindly look at all the possible implications ..

    About running Hummer on petrol, how can you so definitely be sure that the income of that person is "haraam" .. is it not possible for a person to be rich on the basis of "Halaal" income?

    This is complete showoff and showoff is shirk....

    I tend to disagree with some part of your post ... temperature does not fall with consumption of gas alone ... when the gas is filled, good CNG pumps fill with chilled gas .. the filling nozzle feels quite cold .. the temperature of the CNG cylinder decreases several hours after the gas stays in the cylinder.
    the nozzle feels cold because expanding gas auses coolness. Thisbis te same phenomenon used in ac, fridge n freezers wherein gas is compressed by the compressor which heats it up because u r packing molecules close together, then it is allowed to expand whereby it causes coolness. A heated gas exerts more pressure because pressure is measurement if force applied on a container's walls by the gas and when gas is heated, more molecules strike the walls of a cylinder hence more presssure. When the molecules cool down, the pressure also goes down.

    Khurram Bhai .. The sensors that I have used are for computers and not cars. They run on 5 volts and we had to make a small circuit for stepping down voltage from 12volts to 5 volts.

    I have dropped the idea of computer primarily due to valid questions about its audio performance. Brother 2C is in the process of returning the computer to the company, while the LCD return has run into difficulties. He is going to sell it on Ebay.

    Do we have temperature sensor in market that we can hook with computer? I mean later you will insha-Allah be installing Car Computer; so something that gets integrated into it will obviously be better...

    you have placed sensors and got more accurate readings, I used my bare hands to have mehsusment of temp, and you are right , it take quiet a long time for the cylinder to cool down and its normal (telling you after my search on net, discussing with frnds and cng mechanics).
    Ahmed Bhai I am grateful to you for pointing it out. I have been using CNG-fitted cars since 2002 and I never happened to touch the "just-filled" tank with my bare hands. Now that one of the temp sensors is right next to the cylinder, it is easy to have an idea about the temperature.

    So here the point is that it is normal for people like us who carry nothing or carry just luggage in the trunk which is not going to be affected by cng tank temp but in your case I was worried about those two sound stream amps which were very close to the tank and more than that the DSP which lies just below the tank almost touching it.
    The SS amps and the DSP are about 2" away from the CNG cylinder ... it is not possible to change the layout, so I am thinking about planning two larger 200 mm super-silent fans on the sides of the amps .. they will help in taking the heat away from the amps. DSP will also benefit from this. Now that the cold air is blowing into the trunk, InshaAllah, the heat will no longer be an issue.

    Fans will help to regulate the temperature of the trunk but I will insist that the two amps and dsp should be at a safe distance from the tank , where they do not get any share from the hot cng tank in terms of heat.
    Great idea, of course ... but now help me with the "how part" of the recommendation

    BTW the two sensor's displays are installed so neat and looking great. You previously mentioned to remove the wooden kit becoz something is broken and hence the display will be shifted somewhere else but in my opinion this is the best place for it.
    Thank you .. they do look good, but for looking at the reading, you have to turn side-ways ... since I am going to install new wooden kit, I have planned to make fiber pods for the tweeter .. and I will make space available for these little LCDs in them ... it would be easier to look at them.

    About the TPMS display unit its placement behind the centre speaker is bit odd and doesnt look good. I failed to come up with a good place for it but I know you can find a good place for it.

    JVC center channel is required to be installed right on the top middle of the dashboard .... I moved the TPMS on top of dashboard above the speedometer, but obstructed the view due to large reflection in the windscreen. Corolla has a large plain dashboard, but installing anything on it would raise the aesthetic side questions ... so help me .. Please suggest a good place

    Regards

    I always hated the equations in physics and maths ... but now it makes sense why they teach them in class !

    Let me explain it in layman terms ...

    Free flowing gas is fed into the compressor which puts them in jail at above 200 bar pressure. Jail means the CNG storage tanks at the CNG station ... The gas molecules show their anger on being confined to jail. Finally a customer comes, and the angry gas is filled in the CNG cylinder of the car.

    The molecules are happy on their release from first jail ... and while passing through the filler nozzle, their happiness is evident (cool temp) ... and then without their knowledge ... they are again pushed into another jail i.e. car CNG cylinder ... they remain angry and protest against their imprisonment .... but no one listens to them .. finally 4-6 ghantay kay baad thanday ho kar baith jaatay hain

    You pointed right about SS amps being affected, how about installing a heat-resistant sheet between tank and the SS amps? Would it serve the purpose?


    Good idea Sir ... Amir assured me that 47-48 degrees temp will not affect DSP ... but I think it is a good idea to consider having some kind of heat insulation between the tank and the SS amps/ DSP ..

    Now please suggest a good thin material for this purpose

    Domo arigatogozaimasu!

    Ima watashiwa totemo tsukereteimashita desu!!!

    I badly need rest. Now that the system is MashaAllah running fine, it is time to give rest to the horses After spending hundreds of hours under the sun without even a fan, I guess my skin is burnt enough ... if you see my neck and shoulders, it is unbelievable to conclude that they belong to the same body!

    About being satisfied .. yes, I am the restless type but things have to stop ... Thank you for your advice ... InshaAllah, except for minor tweaking ... I am going to learn to live with what I have

    Default Off topic ... but a Baby Pram fitted with an audio system

    Project "Laadli" - My Toyota Corolla GLi 2010 - pramMASON3004 468x445


    All parents find they have to splash out a little when a new baby comes along. But for one new arrival, it is obvious that only the very best would do.

    Yesterday it was revealed that this gold-plated pram, which boasts a fitted sound system and satin interior, has been snapped up after just two weeks on sale at Harrods for a staggering £6,000. ($12,000)


    Described as "the ultimate in "baby bling", the converted Silver Cross Silver Shadow is dripping in £4,000-worth of 24-carat gold, which covers every panel as well as its wheels and spokes.
    Its leather hood is trimmed in super-soft ermine fur, it has a blue satin lining - and its base even conceals a clockwork music box which plays soothing nursery rhymes.
    The show-stopping pram was created by Graham Richardson and Alison Murfet, who run a pram-restoring business in Holbeach, Lincolnshire.
    It was bought around six weeks ago at the famous Knightsbridge store by a South African businessman, who has not been named.
    The Silver Cross brand dates back to 1877 and generations have grown up being gently wheeled around in its baby carriages.
    In the 1920s, it was crowned the number one manufacturer of baby carriages for Royals after one was supplied to George VI and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.
    The Queen later chose a Silver Cross pram when Prince Charles was born in 1948. However, his was not covered in gold. The cost of the pram exceeds that of any other baby carriage available in Harrods.
    Mr Richardson, 59, said a standard pram was first sent away to a gold plating specialist, who spent two weeks covering every panel in gold.
    "It looks stunning in the daylight, it really is the ultimate in baby bling," he said.
    "We don't know much about who bought it, but I'm sure it's something the Beckhams would be proud of.
    "We may make another one if someone commissions it, they'll be putting diamond wheels on it next."
    A Harrods spokesman said it was not certain whether the pram was bought for a baby, or as a collector's item by the older gentleman who purchased it.
    "Whilst this particular item wouldn't appeal to all customers, we are fortunate enough to have a diverse range of customers who seek out the rare and unusual, which this certainly is," she said. "We do sell other Silver Cross prams which are fairly expensive but they are around £2,500 compared to the £6,000. They are popular - they are very Mary Poppins."
