auto news desk, In India, more used cars are bought than new cars are sold. Some people buy petrol and diesel vehicles from the second hand market while some prefer to buy CNG cars. The biggest advantage of buying a CNG car is that it saves you from expensive fuel costs. However, if you make a slight mistake while buying a CNG car from the second hand market, then you will have to repent. Here we are telling you some such tips which you must keep in mind while buying a used CNG car.
1. Examine the vehicle closely
While buying a used CNG car, it is imperative to get a thorough inspection of the vehicle. If the car is fitted with an aftermarket CNG kit, then checking for gas leaks is a must. Make sure that the quality of the cylinder is not compromised. It would also be wise to get the engine tuning and CNG kit checked by an expert to avoid any possible problems in future.
2. Choose a factory fitted CNG car
Safety should never be compromised in the name of saving money. Instead of buying an aftermarket CNG kit, buy a car with a factory fitted CNG kit from a reputed company. Big companies also take special care of engine health and mileage while ensuring the safety of the customers. Remember, your life is valuable and it is better not to compromise on it.
3. Be careful while refueling
There have been several incidents of explosions while refueling CNG cars in India. Hence, it is essential to take necessary precautions while refueling your CNG vehicle. While refueling at a CNG station, it is advised to park the car and stay at a safe distance. Also check for cylinder leaks whenever possible.
