    Smile Passo on CNG?

    Hello All,

    I want to buy a new car, my primary concern is fuel economy, i have narrowed my search to following options:


    • Diahatsu Cuore ecomatic (brand new the one with automatic transmission)
    • Toyata Passo 2006 or 2007

    My budget is below or about one million

    as both cars are about 1000cc i like to ask that will passo run on CNG? (a friend said something called BRC kit is it installable in it or not?)
    and how well it will perform on cng?

    The reason I am not sure about japanese cars on cng is this that i recently sold my toyota vitz 2001, it was on cng and i had a lot of trouble with it (like i had to warm it up for 3-5 mins in the morning and evening before i could drive it and AC did not work at all on cng)

    What do you guys think please guide me that whether I should opt the safe route (new coure) or can go for feature rich passo?

    Sir let me correct one thing coure is 850cc not 1000 and i was in same delima as u back in december i like passo its comfortable plus it has auto gear no CVT plus throttle is cable controlled not electric like in vitz 05 plus
    but engines 1kr-FE head block assembly is same as vitz i herd from many members that yes it can run on CNG but not a throw answer and as in peshawar i searched for parts and no one had spares for passo but i herd they are available in islamabad and pindi but better conform so we ended up getting an alto coz of CNG
    Coure is good but too over priced i guess and incrise a lil more get a probox its a big car
    Hanjiii Kaa Storeey Eehh !

    Smile Thanks for correction!

    yes cuore is 850cc.

    Here in Karachi i dont think that parts will be a problem, and now I will wait for a answer on (passo+cng) till tomorrow, and if I dont get a definite go ahead i will go and book the cuore.

    Passo is an excellent car and can run on CNG. My Vitz 2001 is running great on CNG as well and no problems. You need a good CNG guy
    Parts in Karachi are no problem. Infact I myself am thinking of buying a passo Or japanese swift (not the pakistani kachra)

    I have still to find anybody who fit CNG in their Passo. Most are too satisfied with the mileage. However it would still be good to hear from experience about how this car performs on CNG...

    20km/l?? Dude, I think that's a bit of an overstatement.

    Ive seen people claiming that their Vitz gives 14.. mine gives 11.5 - 12..

    My new City A/T gives 10 within city with AC...

    So please.. dont mislead people by saying that these cars give 20km/l

    Cheers

    Do you have personal experience? Please give details - what kit you installed, any technical issues, what was mileage before CNG, what is current mileage etc.

    there are too many variables, i am giving the figure that comes in optimum conditions, your driving style, condition of spark plugs, injectors etc, all can have their impact, people on pw claim 20 kpl on honda city 2011, my cousin's vitz used to give 20kpl (used to, as it crossed the figure of 100,000, the economy started to drop).

    btw u did get me, i wasnt sure if it was 660 or 1000

    Passo is an Awsum car i must say but the only problem is its low millage... within city it gives me 11-12 with full AC (in peshawar, where nowadays u have to stop after every kilometer due to rash and construction of roads). im sure it will give around 14 in Islamabad.. ive done its tunning, throttle service, fuel filter + plugs service, air filter changed, and i drive it on low RPM... it gave me exact 500km in topped up tank (within Peshawar city with AC ).. its tank capacity as per internet is 42 liters, so it makes 11.9 km/l

    i havent tried it on highways/motorways yet but on highways it gives 20+ (low rpm) depending upon how you drive.. ive heard that if u drive it on 80-90 it even gives 23-24 (no idea with or without AC)...

    no idea about CNG yet... Thanks
