Hi TAIs,

I recently purchased an single-owner driven 2003 Baleno Vxi model. The CNG kit is 3 months old. It is a 12 kg Tomasitto kit and it holds around 7.8 Kgs of CNG.

But I have an issue with the mileage. After filling 7.8 Kgs of CNG, I am bale to run the car for 95 kms. So the avg is somewhere around 11 to 12.

My driving style:

1. AC always on (Am put up in Noida and summers are damn hot here)
2. I shift gears at 1500 to 2500 rpm as the pick-up is very lull
3. Fitted with 185 cm Tubeless tyres.

What can be the issues?

1. Is there any possibility of a leak?
2. Should it need servicing? If yes, what kinda servicing?
3. What avg can I expect?

Kindly help me out guys.

Just get it checked from authorized service station once from where the kit is installed.

2 of my friends are using CNG baleno and they get Mileage around 14-15 in city.

-Change the Platinum spark plugs designed for gas
-better distributor pipes
-Tune your gas input and the settings on your car
-Change the type of oil you use for your car. Gas powered engines have different engine oil.

Is the car running perfectly fine when turned to petrol? If yes, get the CNG kit, sply injectors checked from a decent mech. Also, does your kit has a lambda installed?
