Don't worry it'll be still sold in other small cities, But rather consider yourself lucky to have picked one on time! :smile:

That article doesn’t states anywhere the engine upgrade for ageing Amby, thus there are less chances of that car being sold any longer in Metros where as small towns would still be able to enjoy HM Ambassadors.

@Cooldhaya, The picture is of a decade old model.

Fuel adulteration can be bad news for BS IV compliant engines

Although, BS IV guarantees cleaner fuel, in a country like ours, where fuel adulteration is rampant, would it mean bad news for the new engines? “BS-IV engines and system needs 50 ppm or less Sulphur fuel for adequate operation. If adulterated fuel is used, the performance of the emission system deteriorates. As such, appropriate fuel is a must for BS-IV engines,” said the VECV spokesperson. Kalra adds, “Fuel quality will affect the high pressure Common rail system. Adulteration is a risk to the reliability and life of high pressure injection systems and low grade fuel will damage the post treatment devices and the engine will pollute more.”
