    Default CNG conversions successfull in Vitz or not

    I have recently started a showroom at jail road.
    I have many customers asking me every day if CNG conversion is successful in Automatic vitz and platz.
    Most of them already complain that their relatives or friends had a very bad expereince after converting their cars and some of them sold it off.
    can any one guide me in this case regarding what type of cng conversion kits are suitable and if there are any add ons to it.
    ?

    THere are many centres converting Vitz and Platz to CNG, and mostly problems are reported due the bad installation rather than incompatibility. I have driven Vitz with CNG and performs fine, and know a lot of others who are happy. If CNG can be installed in a VTEC prosmatic, its much simpler in VItz or platz.

    It can & has been done alot of time in pakistan. the main reason for all of hese horror stories is that the fitters are pathetic and don't know what they are doing.

    I drove a CNG vitz last week, I didnt like it @ all... the friend who owns it was saying that its as good as petrol but I simply didnt like the car as I had to switch off the ac so the car can run... but I'm someone whose always driven on Petrol / Diesel so you can ignore my coments

    @ Storm
    Sir, can you tell me more about the Vitz pricing and stuff...actually Im stuck to choose between a Santro GV Exec or a Vitz...was thinking abt Mini Pajero but that's outta the list now cuz It cant be CNG'd...

    So tell me, how much would a VItz cost in good condition, wud prefer a model in the 5lakh range. And if you can elaborate on the Lamda CNG kit too. THanx!

    there is a 1.4L D4D available in the vitz/yaris/platz/eco. It has 89HP & 140lb/ft torqueand is supposed to give 62.8mpg according to the August issue of top gear.

    The intercooler on that car is the exact same one used in the Vigo.

    Although there are many Auto cars running with CNG, but not up to the mark.... I will recommend spending some more money by installing the Lambda controller, that will greatly improve the ride quality.....

    If you do not like peaceful, smooth and trouble-free ride, get CNG.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.
