Firstly buying a diesel car would be a very wise choice, if you can spare the money If you are choosing between CNG and LPG choose on the basis of pumps. If LPG is readily available in your city then go for LPG otherwise opt for CNG. (CNG is safer )If you put CNG in your existing car it will work out to be very economical and with the rising…[Read more]
@Rishabh P Nair…Thanx buddy. Buying a new car wud mean shelling out 4 to 5 lacs ..where else CNG kit wud cost me 30K…so very economical n best…what say?
lpg is liqufied so is under much less pressure than cng which is compressed. anything compressed is under much larger pressure, i.e.heavier n larger tank.
with 2000kms a month i recovered the cost of my kit in less than 3-4 months!!!
@Carl Mistry..LPG is liquified..true but it seems CNG is lighter than air..and vanishes quickly than LPG. LPG forms lumps in the tank which is very dangerous. 2ndly..there is lot of difference int he average of LPG and CNG. CNG gives better average than LPG.
lpg is SAFER, rest is upto u
Company fitted one will fetch more of warranty
Better to buy a new badge from Service ppl,in fact swift rocks without the name tag
11 months waiting sucks.
warranty also remains the same. the question is about the performance and the longeivity? would it differ?
Performance will be below par.AFAIK my friend who owns an Wagon R LXI duo tells that the mileage in city is around 10-12kmpl and is not a rev-happy one.
whats the point of buying a cng car if he uses petrol? they claim on cng it 26km/kg
That’s not true everytime.Its used only to save fuel costs.
Dealer fitted CNG is as good as the company fitted kit. However i think the company fitted Wagon R CNG comes with a specially made suspension setup to reduce bounce and other parts like spark plugs, valves etc too are modified to suit CNG better.If your dealer promises all these changes as well, then its better to go for the VXI if the dealer is…[Read more]
cng 26km/kg … this is true..! go for it
company fitted, anyday
but whyy??? any effect on the performance?
Just compare the features with I10 Asta, you will know what Brio has
what is the waiting period?
3 months in delhi……….
its 4 months(at most 3 months) in delhi noida & gurgaon!!!
Honda brand @ this price is terribly awsome!
its a strategy of diversification by Honda to launch Brio to compensate the sales decline for Honda Jazz….
however, gud strategy by Honda n it vl definitely work….now customers vl turn their interest from Jazz to Brio.
It seems to maintain a lower price honda compromised on safety on base model, shame Honda!
In order to survive in the tough competitive automobile market of india, honda changes its strategies, good to see this overall it’s a wise and smart move by honda…
I always follow these rules.. and the result is that I can get mileage upto 21KM/Ltr of Petrol some times…..on my HONDA CITY i-VTEC…..

Switch off the AC button when the car is cool enough. This applies to cars without climate control. If the car is equipped with automatic climate control, set the car to optimum temperatures to prevent the compressor from running for a long time
Amruth Ganesh LOL Even the ARAI certified mileage is lesser than that
what’s the meaning of carpool?
Akash Shetty go google it
Smartly use the AC means we should avoid keeping AC ON on signals,you can also keep AC power at min here… lower rpm lower AC…at higher rpm it doesn’t matter
thanks DWS for nice tips.
Even Better, Keep the Damn Rickshaws off the road, No congestion, No road rage, No frustrated Drivers, No Bottle necks, even the BEST drivers are very calm and better fuel average, I realised our problem really is Very High percentage of Idiots on the Street, and not an inadequate road infrastructure.
I try to switch off engine when stopping at a light or when not in use for more than 1 min. I try to avoid minimum use of AC. This can also help in saving some amount of fuel.
gud thinking g.
MY CITY GIVES 17-18 AVERAGE….
Bye Bicycle…. good exercise…. no petrol… no toll… no pollution…. no parking charges…
please give some tips for byke riders also…………………….

a fuel and money consuming honda is a myth!!! my city needs a servicing after 10000 kms and it cost less than my santro!!! and its a fact!!
same experience here…
My Honda City 2010 is more efficient than my Hyundai I10 (1.2 kappa) 2009…
From i10 i can get max. 17 km/ltr (with WIDER TYRE set)..
Its all depends upon the Engine’s Power to Weight Ratio, Tyres, Gear ratio, Aerodynamics, Suspensions etc. etc.
@Abhi Jeet,@Amruth Ganesh,@Ajay Srinivas Raghavan…
Did YOU ever have a chance to drive HONDA CITY i-vetec (NEW model)??
Dont confuse between Honda CITY and Honda CIVIC…
ARAI approved CITY for 16.6 Km/ltr
and CIVIC for 11.2 KM/Ltr.
And for your KIND INFORMATION, i will soon upload the Photo of my HONDA City’s Digital meter showing more…[Read more]
Carpool: if more than one persons daily travelling from same way than instead of using separate vehicle use one
interesting to read but very difficult to follow.
thanxs nice tips.
let me follow it……….
Best useful Tips.
I too get 17.5 kmpl sometimes from my honda city iv tec.
drivin at de speed of 40-50 wil give u gr8 milage…
Alto k10 owners are still, least worried..!!!
Hey… for bike owners… use better engine oils… timely change the oils and use high performance oils… they improve performance and better accelaration…. Maitain an optimum speed always while riding, for eg: for FZ or Fazer, you get 40+ only if u control and ride at speeds of 45 and 50…. 60 and above dips the efficiency….
And better, dont use performance kits and filters… they can drink the petrol sometimes that when you sometimes hit above 90 or above, the efficiency might be way below 20 sometimes…
24.6 kmpl on verna crdi 1.6- highway
29.3 kmpl on highway for my new Dzire VDi & 25.7 kmpl in city driving… following all the tips for fuel efficiency. Never drive above 80kmph.
Could u give me an idea about fuel injector cleaners. How to use them and their price?. Thanks in advance.
