    Update

    Hi,

    I have completed trouble-free 30k kms on CNG .
    I had also installed a Timing Advancer [Made in Italy; Rs.4500/- (with installation)] and Car runs even more smoother in CNG mode in comparo to the Petrol mode. Pick-up is tremendous. And icing on the cake is the cold weather and a cold air intake , which makes the car go Vroooom in the mornings !!! ;)

    However, once the engine overheated and stopped. Steam blowing out from the front grills. I thought CNG maybe the culprit.:( Got the car towed to Oberio, Noida. On inspection found out that the pipe coming out from the Water reservoir for the radiator was cut / nibbled at various places. Culprit : RATS .:eek::mad: What a relief !!!

    Anyways no issues so far with the CNG [touch wood] .


    Happy New Year Guys !!!!! :)

    Forget to mention about the only hassle [as of now] of owning a CNG car refills. One needs to wait for a long time to get the gas filled and also pressure is low at peak times and the tank may not be filled to maximum capacity. However, to avoid this I visit the station at 5 am in the mornings to avoid rush and get full pressure.

    Fiat Linea CNG Sequential with Versus(Poland) Kit - YouTube

    This one kit looks like made for Linea. You do know ofcourse that Sequential is the best way to go or perhaps the only way to ensure least troubles.
  7. HI. Initially I faced some trouble with the CNG but later it was resolved by proper tuning.
    @Dilip: Which brand CKP Timing Advancer have you got installed in your car. Even I have got Timing Advancer installed and car is doing good with it!! Touch Wood!!
