I will definitely recommend him. His rates are a bit on the higher side but since my experience has been quite good, I'll get my future conversions from him only.
Can you suggest any other installers too or should I just zero in on them?

I have no idea about any other installers as such. You can do a google search and find out about more installers in the vicinity.

Default Re: Advice on CNG Conversion

So finally installed Motozen CNG Kit in our Celerio. It costed us around 39k.
No wires were cut as coupler was installed.
Also CNG filter was installed (as seen in pictures below)

Just drove about 50 km after installation.
There is very less difference in pickup, just gears need to be used more
Only Problem is that car now appears to stall as soon as we switch on the car.
Also it vibrates too much at speed of around 25kmph in 3rd gear.
So will get it checked from our installer.
Any suggestions for the same?

This should not happen if the tuning is done correctly. Get all the parts he has installed checked once. If tuned perfectly, the car will run like petrol only without any jerks or excess vibrations. Power will drop 10-15% but the car should be smooth.

Yes. Sorry for not updating the the information.
Had got it checked from the installer the day after reporting the issue here.
Now the car is fine and running smoothly similar to Petrol.

And as you said there is around 10% power drop which is easily manageable by just dropping a gear. For example: Earlier on petrol, car used to pick up strongly from 40kmph in 3rd gear. Now it just needs 3rd gear for it

Default Re: Advice on CNG Conversion

I had my car converted to CNG many years back & RTO also gave me a new Registration card where it specifies that the Car is a CNG car. After a couple of years, once I reduced my driving, I no longer had the patience to fill CNG, so I removed the CNG cylinder from the Car & also the CNG fittings etc.

I have been driving on Petrol for many years but now I am wondering if its actually OK to have removed the CNG cylinder/fittings & still driving on the CNG registration card? I would assume so because a CNG car is always a Petrol+CNG car. But just wanted to confirm.

To get the CNG endorsement removed, you need to get a letter from a certified shop stating that the cylinder is removed and then get your vehicle re-inspected by the rto.
