Would appreciate advise, feedback and opinions about getting CNG installed in my 1.6 Lancer; an automatic based on CVT. Here's the background:
I installed CNG immediately upon buying the car a year or so ago, but had to remove and sell it due to an extremely unpleasant experience. The guy who installed it had done it without the emulator and advancer because, as per him, that was the only way to retard the injection into accepting CNG in the case of lancers because of the CVT thing.
While he was probably full of it, the bottom line is that my car started acting all messed up - Irritating jerks that felt like as if the transmission was screwed, even when driving on octane - So I removed the CNG and then spent 2 months wasting money getting EVERYTHING diagnosed from a range of places -
Sadly, none of them could figure the culprit since the scans always showed all sensors/gearbox etc as all clear. Finally resolved that myself after wasting a depressing amount of time and money. Have been driving on petrol ever since, but the average pretty much sucks as compared to other 1.6 contenders.
More importantly, I've now run across a couple of dudes who are completely guaranteeing that the car will run like a dream on CNG regardless of the CVT and all that - They've even assured me that they've done it on countless similar lancers - My fear, right now, is of once more running into the same sort of issues [frustrating transmission jerks while cruising] I had last time, and I'd thus appreciate any sort of advise here.
