By Velu 03 March 2009

It should be possible - You might have to remove the back seats. LOL!

Answer by Bub In Soup 03 March 2009

Hahahaha! Probably. But it won't cross 50!

Answer by Sid 03 March 2009
Expert`s comment:

It is possible to fit LPG but rear seat wont be usefull as the same space is utilized for LPG.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 03 March 2009

Yes...but u mite have to hold the cylinder on ur

Answer by Chandy 03 March 2009

If you fit LPG to will be like a Live missile or Bomb.. which can explode at anytime... Nano by itself is a safeless vehicle...

Why Nano is safeless

- First there is no Engine in front Engine Compartment, so imagine how it will react when it has a crash.. no cross bar...
- Only space you can put you luggage is the front Engine compartment area. So jus imagine driving a vehicle with unbalanced load in the front... :(

- as there is no engine in front , which means less load in the front area... jus imagine how this vehicle react at little high speed... it will take off from the road..

there r lot of negatives abt this 4 wheeled 2 wheeler..

In short why risk life for jus 25 K less.. Life is preciuos... not nano.. nano is business...

Answer by Sam 03 March 2009

There is an option to fit LPG in the front bonet area. but you have to remove your spare tyre. As the LPG cylinders can be custom made and come in variable sizes. So i believe there is an option for LPG conversion. But one can come to the conclusion only after looking at the space area.

Answer by Zaheer 03 March 2009

There is still no clarity on the fitting of LPG and CNG for the Nano. With the small storage in the front, there will not be any usable space available with the LPG tank inside. So leave that option for now.

And dear Sam, Nano is not 'safeless'. Its much safer than a M800 or Alto. It confirms to safety norms and rollover tests have also been done to ensure safety. Its engineered for safety. Tata will not make an unsafe matchbox like Maruti. Engine not in the front does not mean its not safe. If it was so, a Porsche or some other rear engined sports cars will not be safe according to what u say.

Answer by Ayush 04 April 2011

Once, test driven a nano, it has good drive control, lot of space, safe, proud that an Indian had done it, LPG conversion can also be done, small approved cylinder of 25kgs can be kept behind back seat with proper insulation and filling at front as done for petrol, consult a good mechanic who has conversion experience. Try to be an Indian first.

Answer by Prabhu 05 May 2011

U can install a carrier on the roof and fix cylinder there.I cant think of any other place to fix the same.But why u want to do as I thin it gives better mileage than other petrol car and LPG will reduce the mileage.moreevr Auto LPG prces are not regalated they r market driven and o up and down with petrol prices.

Answer by VARINDER 05 May 2011

I own for the last one year , great city driving is 18 km / ltr city. Easy to drive n park. Salute to Tata..

Answer by Shaijil 09 September 2013

Nano is a safe vehicle. The sales of Nano are rising. If u compare the price with a two wheeler u will definitely buy a Nano. What u can get in 1 lakh rupees. Ratan Tata has done it and he has been admired by whole world. He has full filled his promise of 1 lakh rupee car. A Nano can be fitted with a LPG kit and in a couple of months Tata Motors is coming out with a company fitted CNG kit for the Nano. Now Tata Motors must come out with different shapes for the Nano. The younger generation is more interested in Nano.

Answer by Jatin Sareen 09 September 2012

I Strongly Feel that TATA - NANO is a Safe Vehicle. As said by an Expert TATA ' S Will not manufacture unless it is Safe and user friendly. Thanks to SRI RATAN TATA who made his dream project success. It is the indian mentality to Criticise All Cheap modes - Particularly Made of INDIA . If at all the same invention was done by a Foreign company and decides to sel in india with collaboration , Probably all of us will be waiting in long Ques to book for self.
When it comes for advising we suggest a lot. This was not to comment some body but request to realise the fact behind introduction of NANO .

At the cost of a Premium bike & with the similar Maintenance cost you are getting a comfort of car . Please realise the facts.
Coming to the actual issue of using LPG in NANO -- It is the companies advise to not to Use . Moreover ther are few experts who shared their experience who are already using the same. But Particularly NANO is made to run for short distances and for city trafics. Under these conditions -- Eexpecting Economy for short distances may not be worthy , when compared to safety aspects.

Answer by SRINIVASA RAO 09 September 2012

is it safe, when i fit lpg gas kit my nano car

Answer by KRISHNA BORUAH 09 September 2012

if a sequential kit is used, it should give 20-22 kmpl right away with no change in pickup or 10% reduced pickup due to the fuel's properties. Maruti Duo used a 20L tank, Probably that could be fit above the engine. LPG stations should be available every 200-300 kms. So, should not be a problem even in highways. Only doubt is whether RTO would approve this.

Answer by Sridhar 09 September 2012

what are all colors in nano

Answer by S ANANDAN 09 September 2012

TATA NANO is a super car of India. we all have to say many thanks to Mr.Ratan Tata & team of engineers. TATA'S have really ventured into a friendly car for Indian Citizens. at moderate rate & aprtfrom that it is suitbale to drive according to the Indian road conditions. we have to respect our indian technology first & follow the principle strictly first to BE INDIAN BUY INDIAN .TATA motors making contineous efforts how to improve further NANO cars & R&D is very strong enough to boost the product in the market in higher volume. for your information whatever the fire accidents happened ealrier in NANO car were not the fault of Manufacturing defects of TATA motors but it happend due to leaving some waste oiled cloth inside the engine & also customer has made changes in Electrical fittings after sales. THEREFREO NO BODY NEED TO MISUNDERSTAND THAT TATA NANO IS GETTING FIRE OR OR NOT GOOD. ANY MORE CAN BE DOEN TO NANO INCLUDING FITTING OF LPG KIT WITH PROPER SUPERVISION & THROUGH AUTHORISED SERVICE OUTLETS.

Answer by ASHVINI 09 September 2012

plz dont play with youy life .

Answer by Priyanka 10 October 2012

Nano is a wonderful replacement for a family of 4 traveling on a bike exposed to rain & heat & pollution. Most of the guys criticizing NANO are criticizing there own self. The world is all praises for NANO but the people of the country which makes it are not proud about it....That's why the foreigners say "Bloody Indians", We are ourselves making a fool of us.It is something like a son is abusing his own mother. .

Answer by Aadigig 02 February 2013

NANO is a wonder by indian auto maker. In fact NANO is most suitable for daily running up to 50 to 60 kms. If your running is in this range then there is no need to change fuel. Overall the running cost remain same. If it is more then you can think of it. The best place to fit LPG cyllinder is in luggage compartment behind back seats with proper insulation. It is best to contact good mechanic / converters and take opinions from 2 to 3 peoples.

Hitesh ne bilkul sahi kaha hai.... ye who durbhagya sali Indians hai jo apne ghar ki desi greeki roti ko chod kar dusro ke ghar ki bani roti khane mai aapni saan samjte hai. India 1200 salo tak yese hi gulam nahi raha.............aaj bhi gulam hi hai....... YAARO... EK DESH PEHLE DESH KI SOCHO..........

I am using Nano Lx last 3 years running on highway constant 2000 kms on speed 100 from Mumbai to Rajasthan every month and daily running 60 km in Petrol. Avg. 23 overall with AC...BEST PERFORMANCE.....I was never face problem...nowhere stop........on the highway when I m passes on all big cars look at me they are behind me in just a seconds. :)- this happened not becoz of speed its happened due to size small wonder passes narrow roads......they surely think that time to buy this......Superb experience...........

Everybody Indian who want to Dream driving just first go for test drive all cars that u feel better then Nano.....and after test drive of all costly cars even alto/Swift /Accent / WagonR/ Invova/Beat/i10/Eon/spark any of at LAST you must test drive Nano both in City crowed area min. 50 km at list, then go to Highway test drive min. 50 km.............I will sure final you go for NANO only.. you got surprised even others to see you surprised.

Because its a CAR OF THE CHENTURY, GOOD THINGS COMES IN SMALL PACKAGE... big problem is that its cost reaches by middle class family, rich family cant' to see this. we are Indians look at status in social, Judge the person by there car and money.... not by there thought.. and Miracles... and Country Love.

Answer by HITESH 07 July 2013

I was reading all these posts. Quite interesting. I bought a second handed NANO cx as a second car. Believe me, now it is my favourite car. I also own an INNOVA. Now we use it for only family trips. I love NANO, for its vast space inside, the simple driving and its cute body; can park anywhere easy.. Really comfortable drive in city. Bit noisy, comparing to swift n all, but spacious than alto and such cars. End of the day, you are paying less than 2000 dollars for a car!!! Really happy with my NANO.

Answer by Khalid Sawani 06 June 2014

Can i fit AC in my nano as my nano is Non AC. Plz help by calling me shailesh- 09860273460.

Answer by Shailesh 06 June 2014

Hi all, greetings
I was one of the the first lucky 10,000 customers and have been really happy with my nano performance, but my biggest problem is that I have a base model and don't have AC. It is too bothersome when it rains (due to mist formation) or during hot days (neither I can open the windows or can close due to hot wind). I sincerely request any of the users who got AC fitted to their basic model to guide me. Please drop a message to my cell, and I will call you back. Thanks a lot in advance. Please, please, this is my humble request as I have family of 5 who travel in this and 4 of them are aged. Please drop a msg to 08553705080 with your convenient time of call so that I can seek your advice and guidance to get this fitted to my car.
