Dear Saya Prasad,

I owned and used a Maruti Alto Lxi in Chennai city for almost 5 years

When i wanted to buy a new car I ended up buying a brand new Alto Lxi this december 2009 again.

This is beause of the reason that its a very soft and small car and is excellent for City drive.

I have also used it for long drive to Kerala, tirupati, Bangalore and Mysore.

My car gave me a milegae of 27Kms per litre (brim full method) without A/C and about 23Kms per litre with the A/C on through out.

MY SINCERE ADVICE is do not switch to LPG, your car cannot take it. My friend fitted a lavota. considering the price and the maintenance cost, and loosing space in the boot he ended up removing it.

If you average useage per year is not crossing 15000 Kms please use the car as it is and regularly take for service like wheel alignemtn every 3000Ksm, flushing and cleaning of engine at every 5000Kms etc which will cost you about Rs.1000 every three months

Thank you
Agni Sharman

Dear Mr. Saya. P.
Before going for LPG kit, You should take care about your running KM/Month. If these are low (as 1000 Kms Only) then you should not go for it. You will install LPG kit of near about 25000/- and save Rs. 1900/- per month thus your pay back period will be 13months and your risk factor will be more for your lofe. so I will suggest you not to go for LPG.

Before getting LPG installed to your car , you should first check you avg. monthly mileage. if it is more than 1000 kms. than opt for LPG/CNG. talking about central locking you can go for Autocop or Black cat , both are good. And if you want to go for high end central locking than you can go for boomerang. If you are from delhi than you can get it fitted at CAR PLUS number is 9818850000 Mr. sumit.

See a Maruti Dealers / workshop. They are appropriate authority to answer. I would not do neither of your choice.

Answer by Tapan Ray 03 March 2009

Don't just go in for any CNG/LPG kit. I would rather suggest Maruti authorised. It might cost you around 10-15k more but satisfaction is worth the price. No hassales. Never go in for a LPG...only CNG. For central locking, go in for iCAT. This one is better and available only at Maruti Showrooms.
