Dear Friends,

One of my friend wanted to put CNG on his Honda City'06 ZX GXi. He needs advice on whether he can does the same ? Which company would be good and what all extra things (advancers, lambdas etc) are required to run it on CNG without any problem.
Thanks for your valuable advice in advance.[cheers]

You can surely put that on, but here are the most common troubles with closed loop ECU's. Yours is euro 3 i suppose?
The problem being the stoich ratio of CNg is Different from petrol. The mixture is much leaner and ur O2 sensor will sense it and ur MIL lamp will glow.
To resolve this, u will need a lambda control with stepper motor,Which takes its signals from the ECU.
If this is installed, u wont need timing advancers.

My friend wanted to know whether same can be performed ? If yes then, what items are required to run it smoothly. I think, you have suggested about lambda but same is required any other car I guess. So what is different in this case ? He is ready to put advancer and lambda both if they have different functions and would support it running his car without any issue. Most importanly, which company product he should go for. There are too many companies in the market.

Please suggest.

People please assist. My friend visited couple of CNG dealers in Dwarka and west Delhi region and they are confirming that CNG can be installed and there would not be any problem. Infact, they are going GA-GA about the average and money savings he would be having in future.

Need support.

Anmol, where did you get this list ? I mean only address is there but no contact no. Secondly, even if I ask them about fitment on Honda City-2. I don't think they would say no or give correct information because we are business to them and they would not like to tell us the truth and lose business.

Just a thought, what do you say !!

Is CNG suitable for Honda City Zx

I am planning to buy a second Honda City ZX CVT make 2007 from Mumbai which has run 40000 Km. It is also fitted with a Lamda make CNG kit. My questions are:
1. Is CNG suitable for Honda city, or does it damage the car engine in any way.
2. Will a Honda dealer continue to service this car , or will they refuse to service it since it has been fitted with a CNG kit.
3. Car price is 3,70,000. Is it worth going for this car ?

i have honda city zx gxi with lovato brand cng kit installed it is working perfect without any problem.
Last week i travelled to nashik it gave me average of 27/Km.
But ya keep in mind to run your car on petrol for atleast 3 km in a week to lubricate the engine
