Hi All,

I too tried to look into the LPG approved list for Palio 1.6 GTX. I see only palio 1.2 being listed there but not a single entry for 1.6 sp/gtx. Can some one please let me know if I could go ahead installing it on 1.6 help

What I heard if particular kit is listed in ARAI website or not best method is check local lpg installer and make sure the kit approved is RTO approved and check with RTO office if the kit we buy is approved. In most of the times its better if we use agents for this work.

Regards,

Ravi.

As far as I know RTO does not have authority to approve kits. Its only ARAI that has the rights. People just use the term "RTO approved". However you can check with the RTO to find out which kit is approved. They have a list.

Does this mean I cannot convert my car to CNG?

How is it possible that it exists in LPG list and not in CNG list?? Is this normally the case...

Considering I may have to go for some other kit(since no cng kit seems to be approved for 99 lancer), what problems do u foresee? Once endorsement is managed by the installer... do the cops conduct routine checks to catch such installations.

Thanks alot.

I suggest you pay a visit to the local RTO office and enquire what the approved kit for your car is. They maintain the ARAI list. The unofficial kit (just speculating) may give problems incase of a insurance claim or something. Not sure though.

Thanks alot.

I just got a list from Delhi Govt Transport Site... Thanks to Wolfi.

According to the list of approved cng kits, Bedeni & Nugas are approved for Lancer 99... upto BS 2 norms.

Are BS 2 norms still in effect?

Are Nugas kits available in Mumbai? Can someone please point me to a Nugas dealer in Mumbai... Thanks.

From what I gather sequential closed loop kits are the best. My installer is offering me a closed loop kit from BRC for Swift. Now how do I know its sequential or not, its probably not as he is just charging 42k. I am assuming sequential kit costs more.
Can anyone in Delhi advise me where I can get sequential closed loop kit from Tatarini or BRC since they are approved for Swift. I really appreciate the input.
Currently I got this qoute from Fucot in Najafgadh road...

ARAI and RTA both give approvals, but of different types.

ARAI gives approval to importers/distributors/manufacturers of kits. The approval is known as Type Approval or TA and is (1) Imorter/distributor/manufacturer specific, (2) Kit specific and (3) Car model specific.

RTA approves the kit fabricators who actually do the fitment.

The importer/distributor may or may not be the kit fabricator.

Till last year, Tata's authorised vendor Shrimankar Gas did not have RTA approval in Delhi (even though they had ARAI TA) and so they used to give fabrication certificate in the name of some other RTA-approved vendor, not in their own name.
