But in delhi it makes more sense to go for CNG... after all there only a handful of LPG filling stations but tonnes of CNG ones... So even if we fill up the LPG tank to the brim, to refuel it we will have to specially go long distances to find the LPG and refuel it... CNG however can be filled any time and anywhere....
Dunno about the scenario in ur mumbai though....

buy a 2000-02 maruti 800. will not be expensive to buy, run and maintain. you can get an a/c retrofitted in less than 5Ks. it will be an ideal companion till you buy a proper luxurious set of wheels. but an 800 is strictly for city purposes. if you want to venture out in the open..please avoid and look for something else.
