Only fill 2/3 tank in the summer

It is of great importance in the summer season. As the temperature is rising and there is a heatwave condition across the country, only 2/3 of the CNG tank needs to be filled. The reason behind this is that there is more pressure inside the tank due to higher temperature and if it is already full then it will have no room to make room for the extra pressure. Thus it should be adopted with CNG tank in summer.


Do not use unauthorized CNG kit

There is no dearth of jugaad in India and the mechanics present in the corner of your street can easily convert your petrol car to CNG car. However, it can prove to be extremely dangerous. Unauthorized kits can tamper with your car's wiring and mechanics. Due to this, there may also be a major fire. Therefore, it is advised that customers go for factory-fitted CNG kits or only manufacturer authorized kits. This is a very important task for the safety of the CNG car.


Cheap accessories

What happens many times is that we get caught in the trap of using cheap things, but this should not be done. A mismatched cylinder or a mismatched fuel kit can ruin your car, but it can also cause serious damage. In such a situation, always use accessories of a popular brand for your CNG kit.


Using CNG Compatible Spark Plugs

It is true that the spark plug of a CNG car wears out very quickly. When switching to CNG, it is important that you use CNG compatible spark plugs in your car.


Drive on petrol before switching to CNG

When you start your car, make sure you always start it on petrol. Also, you should run your car on petrol for at least 1 kilometer, to make sure all parts of the engine are properly lubricated. This will reduce wear and tear and your expenses will also be less.


Maintain cylinder pressure

The cylinder pressure should not exceed 200 bar at any time. This is the safe limit, which will prevent any kind of leakage. The pressure can be easily checked on the gauge installed in the gas filling machine.


Change CNG filter

CNG car users should replace the CNG filter after every 20000 km of driving. Using an overused filter will clog the filter. Due to this there will be a significant reduction in power and acceleration.


Keep the throttle body clean

The throttle body is that valve. Which connects the air filter and intake. Take advantage of maximum acceleration from your CNG car. However, CNG cars generally lack acceleration. You obviously never want to slow it down.
