    Default Pajero (Not mini) CNG conversion

    What are the prospects of converting a Pajero V6 petrol 2004 model to CNG?

    Any reputed workshops in Lahore, which have carried out such conversions?

    Any first hand experiences?

    Please help. This question is on behalf of a friend.

    Thanks

    1. Wrong Gas Settings will Result in early Over-Hauling of Engine.
    2. You can run a V8 on CNG, but the point is why buy a V8 or V6 when you Need to run on CNG ?
    3. Wrong Installation MAY result in burning car's Computer.
    4. Drilling and Cutting steel of a 2004 V6 will be very bad for you and your friend's heart.
    5. For a V6, you ll need two(2) 60 Liter Cylinders to get a 100 kms on a refill while driving in city with AC ON.

    I recommend to Sell this thing and buy a Liana F/F CNG, or, If need Mitsubishi, Lancer F/F CNG is Best for your friend, I love it.

    Bro how can you replace a Pajero with Liana????

    What if he needs to travel off road and needs the power and capabilities of a comfortable SUV?.............What if at the same time he needs to cut his fuel expenses in half..........

    Ok then Convert it to CNG, Remember while Offroading or going to your fields you ll need a CNG Station in that vicinity, or go for atleast 4 CNG Cylinders.

    The good thing about CNG is that, with the push of a button, you can convert it back to petrol. So drive on CNG as far as you can, and switch when you can't.

    A much more viable solution would be to either sell and trade for a Intercooled Diesel Turbo Pajero ... or swap the engine with a Diesel one.

    CNG would be a very big fuss with a V6. Its possible but the diesel convertion would be much suitable.

    I strongly recommend converitng or trading for an intercooled turbo diesel.

    @ all
    Thanks for input.

    Looks that this would not be suitable.

    But I read somewhere on these forums that some people have converted Prado and Land Cruisers to CNG. Anybody seen such conversion?

    Lexus LX-470...LS-400 and Land Cruiser & Surf are running fine on CNG then why wont a Pajero V-6 run on CNG. It will run prefectly fine just dont go to any common CNG mechanic....Go to some proper place and get it converted.
