    Cool Advise on installing CNG in Corolla Xli 2011

    I have recently bought a brand new Xli n initially decided not to install CNG. Has anybody installed CNG in Xli,,, plz advise its effects on engine and its performance as compared to patrol. I have heard that CNG does not work well with VVT-i engines, is that true?

    i heard from toyota dealer's own engine mechanic that the new engine head wears out very fast on cng. you need head repairs at about 50 000 km

    If you drive 10-15km daily on petrol and rest on cng then there will be no issue. Go for it, but right now is not the best time. Run ur car around 8-10k kms on petrol and then convert.

    My mechanic was telling me today that new Xli/Gli is not good on CNG. He was saying that all new Xli owners are having a very bad time with CNG. The first reason is VVTI engine and the other reason is that Xli/GLi is underpowered on petrol then how can it perform good on CNG.
