    Default APV Gas Average on long with ac?

    Hello Xperts,

    I have APV 2005 Model and i used it on petrol for 3 years and now i have converted it in CNG with cylender of 75.

    I use APV only for long drives and it gives me 125km with AC each cylender (11kg gas each cylender) is it good average.? or how can i improve the average.?

    I look forward to have comments and tips of Xperts.

    Rgds,

    Teafi

    ok no problem for chat

    yes 95 is less but may be because of crowdy road,
    i think lesser gas supply make it khata reri on 1st gear,
    it is common mistake by mechanics,dont worry
    try to get in original flow
    then

    because if 1 time it gives u 95 then it doesnot mean that average decresaes,always check average by 3-4 readings

    for exapmle 1 trip u find 95 km
    2nd time refill full cylinder & check may be lets say 100
    3rd time refill giv 110 km

    then this means that it is not less average 95, there r many factors as
    crowdy road, ,weight in car, pressure of cng may be less at station from where u took cng etc.

    I agree with you that avg is not same all the times, and agree too about your reasons about weight and rush on roads but i`m worried abiut the pick, yesterday i cam from lahore to sialkot and some times its hard to overtake the next car, i i went again to mechanic he will increse the supply of gas which will effect on avg.? so if i want to good avg than i have to bear the low pick problem .?

    my 95 civic auto tranny (1500 cc) gave 110 Km with a 55liter cylinder on 90km/hr to 110km/hr at gt road with ac on and 4 people on board.

    How many passengers u were carrying?

    I guess apv is underpowered thats y u are getting low milage on gas.

    was just thinking as this APV should be atleast 2000 cc coz i have seen apv with 10 people i think it is a bit underpowered. Coz cars are coming in with 1300, 1500 and 1600cc for 4 pesengers. U got a good average for 8 pessengers.

    The average i got 110Km froma 55 liter cylinder was of a 12 years old engine with aggressive foot on pedal so i was comparing it with yours but still i think it is ok.

    on a 1500cc with 8 pessengers on board with 75 liter cylinder and also with weight of APV is higher then that of cars how can you expect to over take a car especially when you are running on CNG. That was why i was calling it underpowered as to weight to torque ratio.

    LOR, by your words of underpower i admit yes its undpower and i feel its rpm is also higer than other vehicles, for example if i'm on 100 speed the rpm wud be at 3500, i think its also a reason to consume more CNG, what u think LOR
