guys some simple estimates for CL 7 owners only provided for your kind observation..
CNG Kit cost about Rs. 45000/- including installation etc.
55 kg cylinder fills for about Rs. 500/- + or -
full tank of CNG runs 100 km. for 2L engines.
100 km on petrol cost Rs. 1000/-
say if you do 1000 km a month...
on petrol it will cost Rs. 10, 000/- Per month.
in a year your fuel costs will be Rs. 120,000/-
On CNG 1000 km will cost you Rs. 5000/- per month.
Per year costs are Rs. 60000/-
include Kit cost Rs. 45000/-
Total Cost Rs. 105000/-
include regular maintenance "after effects of CNG" your costs rise up to Rs. 110000/- to Rs. 115000/-
add engine performance depreciation resulting in depreciation of total value.
not to mention the long cues and the endless waiting to refill CNG and mostly when u really are in a rush CNG is not available due to load shedding etc
Now consider is it really worth installing CNG in your car just to save Rs. 5000/- to Rs 10000/- ....
feedback is appreciated
