Tata Altroz CNG Review
According to the YouTuber, the most important part while getting a CNG kit for your car is its installation. He said it’s really important for the mechanic to be technically sound. Even after getting the best brand’s CNG kit, users encounter problems due to improper tuning and calibration. Mr. Zuhaib said in the video that he faced the same problem after getting a CNG kit in his Honda City until he met a sound technician.
The same problem was faced by the owner who contacted the YouTuber. The owner said he installed the CNG kit twice in his Altroz. Unfortunately, he had to uninstall it due to extremely poor results. As per the owner, there was improper fuel delivery which led to jerks while driving.
On the other hand, he could not feel any power while accelerating the car. He said it became very difficult for his Altroz to propel on the roads with slighest elevation. In short, it was a frustrating experience for him.
However, this time the YouTuber helped him by reaching out to an experienced and knowledgeable technician who did the job. Since the technician properly tuned and installed the kit, the owner said the experience of CNG fuel is completely reversed now.
Unlike before, he said the power delivery is as smooth as petrol and there are no jerks. Even after carrying four people inside the cabin, he could not feel any power lag.
Apart from this, if we talk about the bootspace left in car after fitting cylinder then it’s sufficient enough to keep few small bags.
Most people get CNG kits in their cars for just one reason: better fuel efficiency. If we talk about Tata Altroz, then it’s one of the best premium hatchbacks in the market right now. Whether its build quality, design, or features, everything is up to the mark with a decent fuel economy.
However, if someone wants to experience better mileage, they can opt for CNG with one condition: it should be dealt with care.
After considering the experience of the owner as well as the suggestion of the YouTuber, we came down to one conclusion. More than the brand of CNG kit, it’s the installation that is more crucial.
Irrespective of the car brand, CNG can be successful in any car if it’s set up properly.
