Adding a gaskit isint easy. It can create problems for a trouble free running toyota. Its better to be light on the foot.

PM Ravibhat.

AFAIK, he has a petrol innova too, which he got second-hand. He should be able to help.

Hey Babupaul,

Thats nice. When i found few Petrol Innovas for sale I decided to grab one becasue sale price tempted me.

I have baught G3 August 2005 manufactured Petrol Innova and I paid 6.6 lacs (ODO reading 8300km) to the owner who is nice gentleman although my friend who evaluate cars and deals lot of used cars suggested me quote not more than 6.3 lacs.

I have purchased it in 2006 last week of November.

On road price of G3 Petrol is 9.5 lacs in 2005 and now its nearest variant G4 cost 9.7 lacs and it has less features compared with G3.

About your deal: I suggest 5.5 lacs or less is good deal provided vehicle is in good condition and not much dents/scratches.

Please visit Ravindu and Nandi toyota and do verification by giving vehicle number and owner name for service details and kilometer reading during latest service.

I have seen people tamperring ODO during selling the cars.

Check tyre condition (considerring 30k odo) and steering/gearbox etc.. and if you are satisfied and find the seller is genuine go head !

The first work drive it for 200km and then what you need to do is service the vehicle once you buy it because your mind will feel as if you are driving new car. Make sure you have them check every ting during the service so vehicle will be like brand new.

FE you can expect between 7 and 11 based on driving condition with AC on.

About LPG I suggest yuo stay away from it unless you find really good installer and if you find success I am interested in LPG because with LPG and Petrol we can cover nearly 1000km without refueling.

All the best.
