    i have 2007 lancer 1.3 GLX totally petrol driven and currently 56,000 km driven, with me since day 1.
    i got the engine washed with pressure water from service station only a few times and that too was in my absence as driver took the car for service, but once i got to know about the possible hazards of washing the engine, i am keeping it dirty on purpose.
    the problem is that there is too much complicated wiring and many sensors which can be seriously be damaged if they get wet, and that is why my car's engine never saw water again.
    as for the CNG part, it is highly unsuccessful in lancer, don't even think about installing CNG in lancer. my car easily gives 12.5 km/l local with AC and in winters the average goes up to 15 km/l in normal driving. even when pulling hard it gives 9.5-10 km/l and that is in high--rev driving, which i avoid after the price of petrol has reached sky-high.
    any other queries feel free to ask

    Yup... A friend if mine is driving a Cng lancer without any major problem for the last five years or so... he does routine maintenance when its due and enjoys its superb ride.

    i know of some people who installed CNG in lancer and due to severe knocking removed it and had to drive it on hi-octane to avoid knocking. saving ki bajaye kharcha parr gaya ulta. maybe depends on the person installing the kit but as my car has to go on long routes frequently and gets used very less locally, the luggage space is drastically reduced and that's not feasible for me at least.

    The first lancers of Pakistan in 2005 are NOT AT ALL capable on CNG. The CVT has its own advantages. The models in 2005 uptill 2006 .. are NEVER FESABLE ON CNG!

    its only when they introduced GV Vehicals. and the reason they run good on that is because they have proper wiring. CNG always depends on the Installation and just remember One thing.. thats a golden rule with CNG Cars. " Dont expect long life on CNG Vehicals.. they do SAVE you money and gets you in trouble after 5+ years of continuous running "
    Respect comes from fear.

    buy a hybrid, trade lancer for a pruis, if fuel economy is top concern.

    I have Lancer 2007 1.6 GV manual transmission 85000 km on the odo (actual mileage). Here is my experience and answers to your questions ;-

    .. The factory fitted cng is the best experience i've ever had.. pick with economy .. 150km/cylinder in local without ac everytime .. with ac it is 130km ..

    .. When i got this car in last september its engine was never washed since 2007 .. i had to scrub every bit of dirt from it and now i get it washed on pressure with a shopper and piece of cloth on coils and few sensors around it .. i get it washed atleast once or twice a month (from no specified service station, it seems every service station staff knows how to service an engine with senors and EFI)and no problems so far

    Engine bay pic after my first wash .. and it looks like this every time i return from service station
    Mitsubishi Lancer -1036167
    .. the factory fitted kit is tomaseto and i've heard that they (local mitsubishi people) made some special jig to emulate the EFI unit as without it the problem of starting and knocking was there. There are mechanics, who are fitting kits in lancer and these work as good as the factory fitted ones

    .. on petrol i'm not sure but i guess it will it not give above 10 or 11 kmpl in local with ac ..
