I have a Corolla Altis 1.8 Petrol AT 2013. All these days I kept away from installing CNG since boot space was important for my regular long runs. Now that I will have an SUV in my stable, I am planning to go CNG on my Altis. I live in Navi Mumbai and looking for recommended installers and kits to go with the Altis. Appreciate watch out points if any.

Hi Mr.Kanitkar,
Can you share some additional details on the kit you've installed:
Cost of installation
Does it have a CNG filter (from tbhp forums, Maruti Ertiga,etc. factory fitted units have it but most after market installs don't seem to have it)
Tank capacity (litres of water & CNG kgs that go in)
Range on full tank
Some pics would be very helpful & appreciated, if possible.

Also, post conversion, does Toyota still service your vehicle without any issues?

Does the extra weight lead to any bottom scraping on speed breakers?

Default Re: toyota corolla Altis AT 67000 KM, 8 years- now on CNG

  • I still do once in year or 15 months annual servicing at DSK Pune.
  • Now it costs around 8.5 K INR.
After 67K kms, I decided to make change in fuel. I had a word with dealer DSK Toyota, they told me that it works. It does no harm. I seen lot of Altis in Thailand on CNG. After going thru all reviews, I decided to install CNG kit.
I was thinking this from 2013, but then CNG was not easily available in Pune.

Now it's stable.

I have AT model, so was doubtful about performance, but absolutely no issues.

We talked to Akash sales - CNG in Sahakar nagar. He done everything right.
It was same experience for me after CNG as well.

Now with 70 Rs. per ltr Petrol rate & 8 KM per ltr. I am running CNG 45 Rs. per KG, around 15 Kms per KG.. Around 70% cost saving on fuel.
It's nice decision, I would recommend others as well.
I later got my friend's Altis also with CNG kit.

Mod Note: Please take the time to format your posts in the interest of readability. Also do not start new thread on a car that already has an ownership review running. Merged with original thread.


I am toying with the idea of getting a 7 speed Altis Auto and converting it into CNG. How has your experience been so far? Performance and maintenance wise?

Also, any idea what the fair price for a 3013 manufactured, 2014 Jan registered Altis G AT should be in Delhi? Car has under 30,000 kms on the ODO and comes with full service history. The owner is asking for 9 Lakhs but I think that's a bit too high. I was thinking somewhere between 7.5 - 8.25.
