    how much mileage is there on the odometer?
    safe bet would be to use Caltex Havoline
    Is it an EFI or carby 4G13 engine?
    u can use bosch 4 tip FR-78X plugs, it will help in CNG performance for sure.

    Thankx "spectra" . Well as I said odometer says 135000kms and its a simple 1.3 carby engine in mint condition . It took alot of pain 2 install CNG in such a nice car but 10,000RS per month was killing me .

    sorry for my careless reading
    U should use Caltex Havoline as using a synthetic oil at such mileage can have adverse affects.
    For plugs, use anything but splitfire, they are a disaster on CNG.

    u can get them from saddar, do keep in mind the size of plugs. i dont know if this lancer uses 21 or 16 size, coz FR-78X are a6 size. u might need athe other variant with 21 size.
    cost is 1000 Rs. for 4

    most brand name oil products are not very different from each other. you can also consider using synthetic oil but keep in mind the cost involved.

    in my opinion, you can get better performance by simply doing a basic tune-up (plugs, plug wires, distributor & rotor, higher gauge grounding kit). get regular plugs and dont get platinum or sh*t like that cuz u dont need it.

    also consider getting a new air filter (u should have it changed at 12000KM anyway plus a new fuel filter)

    people here will tell you go get platinum cuz it sounds cool. technically...platinum tipped plugs are useless you have a high performance engine.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.
