    man o man it was the biggest gamble i ever did.
    after a lot of research and enquiries,on monday i took the car to the shop.

    first i was confused between sequential and conventinal kit,but settled for the former.
    even considered selling the car and buyin a diesel or cng sedan,but destiny differed.
    the installer is a professional and convinced me that it will run good in my car.

    my friend installed the same kit in his aveo last week,seeing the confidence he provided i continued with my decision and petrol hike shocker on sunday did the final trick.
    gave the car on monday evening ,car just arrived .MAN FOR THE FIRST 2 MINUTES I CUDNT SAY WHETHER THE CAR WAS RUNNING ON CNG OR PETROL.cars refinement level has increased,i mean the smoothness in pickup.the jerks which was present while driving under 2000rpm.
    no noticeable drop in performance.if u ask me the pickup has increased by 5-10%.
    some final tunings are to be done tomorrow.will check the mileage as well.friends aveo is giving under 2rs/km average.my fingers are crossed for the same,infact expectin a little better since his car was giving 10km/litre on petrol earlier and mine was 11.5-12.
    anyways happy with the gamble i played.hope it everthin continues without troble.
    suggestions are welcome...
    will update with pics and all later;)

    Congrats Anish.

    I've seen a Punto in Elegant cars which already clocked 30000 on CNG. Owner told me that pickup has increased, but I could not belive on his words at that time. But now after getting feedback from Anish I've to belive on him.
