I drove my Vti (2003) around 50,000 km on Petrol and Optra around 20,000 km.
I did same maths as Humming bird has done when the petrol price was 35 rs per liter. At that time I was convinced about Petrol..... BUT now......
I drive around 500 km in one week. Thats 2500 to 3000 rs per week. Which makes the per day figure something like 360 to 430. 70 km in one day is not something unbelievable.
I have been to Lahore thrice on my cuore, which infact is a foolish act keeping in view the safety concerns. What is the use of a 1.2M vehicle if I feel hesitant to take it on motorway just because of the absurd price of petrol.
I am not much of a technical guy when it comes to cars, still the idea of CNG being injected into the manifold directly instead of throwing it in with Air, along with the TWO ECUs for TWO different fuels is sufficient to convince me. I know this exercise will save me from Tunning related issues. The merc E-Class pics in one post also did some magic in convincing me
I have waited for a long time now, for the prices of Lo-Gas SIS kit to reduce. Unfortunately it is not happening. Let us see what discount Bilal Bhai offers me for being a pakwheelian as well as for promoting SIS kit among many people that I know. Even this reply is kind of a promotion!
Had the SIS Kit not been introduced in Pak, I would have continued wasting money on petrol for ever. There are somethings that can never convince me, tunning of an EFI car is one of them...
