    Lol!

    How're they gonna meet the petrol/diesel demand without further burdening the exchequer?

    Why the heck not turn the gas on from Iran, is "Sam" threatening with anything "big"!!!???

    Well, let me just say, this is a doomed track. Don't worry guyz, it quacks, it swims and it's gonna fly away. It's a duck.

    if it get implimented then

    corolla sales will even rise..... as honda owners will get their ones sold out and buy xli/ gli which is very clearly mentioned that higher than 1300 cc won't be allow...... BUT upto 1300 cc its fine.....

    moreover, all the ones having altis will keep on getting cng with only the badges of their cars as changed..... in here fillers don't have a clue to inspect and finding off CC.....
    i bet 80 % or even more if owner haven't got a clue whats there inside a hood..... filler will fill diesel/ petrol on a single word of owner.

    who bothers to raise bonut and see when there's a huge queue.....

    hence the policy will flop due to more of objections unless they reduce it further to 1000cc only. (which isn't possible)

    Great decision. It should immediately be implemented. But again, there should be STRICT implementation. This should have been implemented quite earlier. We all have to realize that Pakistan is undergoing crisis(in literally every sense). So all Corolla, Civic, City owners should either use petrol or else, they should not buy it!

    If they really WANT to implement then they WILL implement it, no matter they have to open up the entire car.
    Simple Action: Fine 5 lac rupees to one who is found having CNG kit and then see how the rest follow the suit.

    @AsadGumman..........You're absolutely right bro, but ultimately we'll have to move our own ways, and it's exactly some bit of Ghairat that's gonna make us do so, there has to be an end you see, the question is just when, and put by whom.

    Finally, the official ban on new kits has been announced now, but I repeat, it's a duck. Not a workable solution. There's no way you gonna succeed in controlling the 1.3L limit at the pumps, forget it.

    I'm sure we gonna see quite some riots there on the filling stations soon, when one guy just moves out with tank filled, other refused!

    How would they know of compliance? Or at nights? Cameras? "Sarkaari staff"? Is this they way they wanna rid unemployment? Lol! Rest assured, any such sarkaari staff is gonna find itself more at the hospitals than at the filling stations, and now don't tell me the Highway cops gotta quit the traffic overseeing as to monitoring of the "1.3 digits" by your trunks instead, lolzzzzzzzz!

    I wonder when the last duck takes off from these people with these ideas, it should be about, soon!

    Well said sir. About ghairat, yes we need it very very much but not to combat with other countries but to fight with our own ruthless desires that lead us to beg from Sams & Johns. And I can't see such ghairat evolving here soon. I have worked with Chinese & believe me they are so proud (not in negative sense) about their own products, their language, their culture, their food & even their faces. This type of National pride is required by any nation to rise.

    About this decision, I don't think it is made to reduce gas usage... I can see some other intentions behind it... may be to check public reaction & devise next policy accordingly or getting some money from IMC & Suzuki or to divert fuel usage towards LPG for the welfare of some poor minister who need charity from middle & lower middle class. Who knows

    now this is news worth pop-corn buckets. This was not far off - and dont worry CNG is being sold by all people who are actually connected or in the govt system.

    As we know being Pakistani that anyone connected to the govt has first right of way be it to legally smoke marijuana in their offices or have fake employees take salaries by the million.

    Yeah - Whatever bad is happening in Pakistan is because of "uncle sam". Thats why people here cheat each other for a few bucks.

    Its time we start taking responsibility for our actions. Politicians are from among us. They cheat because majority of the population cheats.

    Things will never improve until we get rid of our delusions. Pipe line is waiting at the border but thanks to the situation in Baluchistan, Sui people spend more time fixing the blown up pipe lines than anything else.

    Billions of $$ have been spent importing CNG plants & Kits. CNG station owner's association have very resourceful stakeholders.

    They will never let it happen. Dr. Asim is an MBBS doctor! The next he would suggest would be mandatory C-Sections at his hospital.

    Yeah - Thats a misconception buddy. Less than 5% of total natural consumption is used in cars .

    Here is a sector wise break up

    1. Fertilizer & Cement: 14% (Cement is only 2%)
    2. Commercial & General industry 28%
    3. Home usage 15%
    4. Power Sector 35%
    5. CNG < 5%

    Even if somehow Gov't does manage to implement the crazy solution - It would only reduce the consumption by less than 1% of total. Its because the number of smaller hatch backs in Pakistan is much higher than the number of 1300+ vehicles.

    The reserves will run out, not because of some Toyota corollas but because our population is growing exponentially while nothing is being done to improve the resources. We needed exploration of resources atleast a decade ago, the time where we were converting our fertilizer, cement & Power generation plants on Natural Gas!

    We are running out of "ALL" resources.
    I buy two water tankers a month, Nestle 19 liters for drinking purposes, Have a UPS & a generator to meet my power needs :p . Got a 12-Cell Battery on my laptop. If they stop supplying gas all i'll have to do is to get a cylinder delivered every week.

    Lets see who brings the next magic formula - An instant fix!
