Question
I own ALTO lxi with LPG kit recently fitted. I am getting an average of 11 without ac- 8 km/ltr with a/c. while on petrol i am getting 16- 17 average. is there some problem with the BRC italian kit or the average is always less with autogas. i am unable to understand. The mechanic who fitted the kit is the most renowed fitter in the city. please suggest some remedy.

Hi... there ia no remeady for this, the average on LPG kit always between 12 to 14 km, what ever you do. you should have gone for CNG kit instead LPG. with CNG you can get average upto 32Km/Kg ( CNG unit is KG not Ltr) and may be less by 2 to 3 Km with AC.
now a days nobody goes for LPG. its old technology, now every body goes for CNG. I have Wagan R , believe it i get average of 32Km/Kg on Highway and 30 in City. also ther is no pickup problem with CNG as there is with LPG.
if possible change to CNG.
Thanks

The problem is alto comes with mpfi engine in which LPG doesn't suit .this engine is suitable only for petrol after few days u ll face with starting troubles with ur car if u want to go for LPG go for cars with carbureted fitted engines like maruti 800 do not fit private gas kits on advanced petrol engines these engines are designed for petrol not for LPG

Hi,
8 KM with AC and 11 KM without AC is little lesser average. Normally, without AC it should be somewhere 14 KMs/Ltr. If proper tuning and adjustment is made, it may improve. There may be problem in filling station. Possibly, you may not be getting full quantity. Manipulation at filling station can not be ruled out. Just check it. Best of luck.
