I have recently bought a brand new Xli n initially decided not to install CNG. Has anybody installed CNG in Xli,,, plz advise its effects on engine and its performance as compared to patrol. I have heard that CNG does not work well with VVT-i engines, is that true?
its not about vvti...other engines work good
but few days back got cng fitted from dealership ...in zero meter gli......
and now to much noise ...plus it feels to much underpowered ....
after getting cng friend is still using it on petrol
i heard from toyota dealer's own engine mechanic that the new engine head wears out very fast on cng. you need head repairs at about 50 000 km
If you drive 10-15km daily on petrol and rest on cng then there will be no issue. Go for it, but right now is not the best time. Run ur car around 8-10k kms on petrol and then convert.
My mechanic was telling me today that new Xli/Gli is not good on CNG. He was saying that all new Xli owners are having a very bad time with CNG. The first reason is VVTI engine and the other reason is that Xli/GLi is underpowered on petrol then how can it perform good on CNG.
This post will be helpful to you...i have installed CNG at 9000 and now driven 5000 Km mashahallah on cng without any issues. everything working and getting good mileage
How much mileage with a 60kg gas cylinder ??
