Alto LXI with LPG Kit
i have finally zeroed down on Alto LXI.
Will be booking it in the month of August
I also wanted to know whether it is feasible to install a LPG kit from MAruti itself.
Does any of the BHP members have done this..

There are a lot of members here who have done so. But its not beneficial. Better keep the thing original since you wont draw any marginal financial benefit out of the conversion.

beneficial as in?
does a LPG kit cause harm to the engine
even if u buy it from the maruti authorised showroom itself
actually i am unaware about this as no one whom i know has a LPG or CNG kit in their car

You can fit lpg kit in alto. I am running my alto lxi last two years on petrol and not fitted gas kit. At present, Maruti does not deliver factory fitted lpg kit to alto. All you can do is fit lpg kit at Maruti dealer. You can use lpg kit fitted on wagon r duo.
If you are using lpg from gas station, then there will be marginal cost differance between running on lpg and petrol. You can use domestic gas cylinders to refill lpg tank in car but this is illegal and dangerous. I will suggest, do not go for lpg kit initially. Use you new alto lxi on petrol for some time say two years. If your running is high, then only think about lpg.

With the curret LPG price, I think there is no actual benefit of installing a LPG kit and running a car on LPG, even if there is a benefit then it's very small, and would take a long time to break even with the cost of installation. In my view just avoid installing a LPG kit.

yes if you use more than 50kms then LPG is very valuable.
Now the rate is Rs.39 for a litre of LPG.
In my WagonR i usally get only 8-9 kmpl FE.
so Rs.4.80 for a Km.
Please find and go for good installer and original kit from Lovato or star and tuning is the major thing to be done very accurately.
