The following precautions are to be followed during servicing and repairing of CNG vehicles which is advisable to do after every 6 months for better performance and mileage of the vehicle.
- In case of leakage in fuel system, vehicles shall not be parked within 6 m of any source of ignition or fire.
- In case of vehicles undergoing repairs involving welding, or heat application to any part (within 1.5 m) of the cylinder, the cylinder should be emptied first.
Do’s and Don’ts!
- Always refer to the supplier’s kit manual for the trouble-shooting guide. Do not do it yourself.
- Do not install an LPG, Propane or any other cylinder in place of a CNG cylinder. It is illegal and unsafe.
- For emergency handling of any CNG leak, users must be aware of the location and operation of cylinder valve, master shut-off valve and burst disc in the CNG system. Study the system and ask your mechanic to identify these parts for you.
- Retrofitter doing the kit fitment should be able to demonstrate these operations to your satisfaction. It is advisable to operate the vehicle occasionally on petrol to ensure that the petrol system remains in good working conditions.
