Cars Q&A

I have plans to purchase a Wagon R duo. I think LPG generates more heat energy than petrol. I have had my driving lessons in an LPG vehicle I would like to know : WHETHER ENGINES RUN ON LPG NEEDS MORE MAINTENANCE, that is frequent oil change and engine overhaul.

  • Expert Hi,
    Though with fittment of cost of fuel will be less there are many instances where Maintenance cost increased after fittment of LPG kit.With the factory fitted LPG versions like Wagon r Duo the maintenance cost is quite less and also lesser frequency of troublees as minor modifications/Change has been done toengine to fit LPG utility. Hence recommended to go for Wagon R DUO.

  • I havw not used factory fitted LPG kit. I had fitted LPG in my Wagon R. It ran quite well. There was no engine problem. The usual problem was with the kit which was locally fitted. It needed adjustment/cleaning every now and then. With factory fitted kit, perhaps there mat not be much trouble.
