      Is it wise to get used Petrol Innova and add CNG kit

      With new Xylo out of radar and general market recession around my industry but needing a 7 seater quite frequently I am looking out to buy used petrol Innova and install CNG from toyota or outside.
      Anyone having experience of using Innova with CNG , please pour in your experience. What kind of mileage can i expect? I am looking at 07 model for less than 4.5L

      No one buys Innova CNG because of low price difference between petrol and diesel Innova. Petrol Innova gives only 8-9kpl mileage. With CNG, it will reduce even further.

      As for CNG compatibility, it will be no problem http://www.toyotabharat.com/cars/new...cng/index.aspx.

      However, till date, I'm yet to see a CNG Innova or hear about someone owning it.

      I am still to meet someone with CNG on Innova but one of my friend who runs city 1.5 on CNG used to get 15 on petrol but manages 20-22 on CNG. So with the 2l petrol engine of Innova I will be happy if it runs 15km on a kg of CNG.

      What did you do? Did you buy an Innova?
      I know its an old thread, but still I would like to say that I have seen once an Innova on a CNG pump, that means people do get their innova's CNGfied. Even as far as I remember, Toyota launched some green mission and they were selling Innovas and Corrolas on CNG a few years ago!

      20-22 kms/litre on CNG

      I thought with LPG/CNG the mileage will be less than petrol.

      I think he means 22-22km/ kg of cng.. and that's normal! My santro on CNG also gives 24-25kms/kg of CNG. Mileage is definitely better while running on CNG.

      On a good Italian CNG kit fit by a professional, average will be at least 50% more than on petrol.
