Congratulations on ur decision to use an alternative low pollution fuel for ur luxury car. Owners of high end cars need to do that more.

U can opt for a CNG or LPG kit depending on the availability of the same at the desired place of use. The fuel shud be available near ur locality or its every day roads for a proper use orf the fuel. U will get back the investments thru savings in a few mnths time.

hi imran,
dont go for lpg or cng fitting for mondeo as this vehicle is imported, fitting this kit from a local mechanic would damage your engine sensors,if you are looking for more mileage try fitting K&N air filter it will add on 1 to 2 kms more to your mileage also get it tune your engine for mileage,it might be under power but you can manage to get 9 to 10 kms/ltr on AC in city driving condition..

U can get a kit fitted from an RTo authorised mechanic. They are wel trained to fit kits to any car, imported or otherwise. Go ahead with the fitment even if you are not really looking at saving fuel bills.

Expert`s comment:

For the sedans like Mondeo, it will not be worthy of going for LPG/CNG kit as it would result in reduced engine life and hence increased maintenance costs.

I go with sanket,i have seen cars like an accord and sonata fitted with cng kits and running absolutely fine so their is no reason why a mondeo would not run as well on cng..go for it brother..if u are in delhi contact me on and i'll get u in touch with some good cng fitment guys who give a 2 year warranty on such fitments..
