  1. what about hyundai,why promote only maruti ,this option is useless in kerala ,no cng pumps ,the lpg lobby will never let cng pumps survive inspite of being most ecofriendly ,my decision to buy a maruti eeco as a cng-petrol version appears a wrong decision,the vehicle is barebones with no luxury,what soever and worst of all no power szteering kindest rgds dsr prasad panicker t m s cardiologist

  2. I’m sure you’ve erred there.I’m sure if you stretch ur neck you’ll find a Hundai Eon prominently labelled as Eco that comes with an elegantly company fitted LPG Kit that looks and performs a bit different than the other versions that I’ve seen so far. The bad news is however its not an off the shelf item and you may have to wait quite a bit for it.And hey make sure you’ve also loaded petrol inbit b4 going off,that’s because it starts on petrol even though you’ve selected gas. So no petrol…. You’re not going anywhere unlike the more common cousins. My other old faithful the Cielo has been running on only gas for the last 5 years.And what’s more surprising is that after the series connection between the kit and the radiator blew up an unfamiliar friendly mechanic made it direct as a temp measure which also gradually be came permanent.Even now many people don’t believe me as as per their learned opinion the car will not even start, forget going without it. Ah the kit? It was a BRC kit.I’ve tried other kits too but they turn erratic or have starting problems…
