Possible to run Tata Xenon CNG dedicated engine system on LPG or Benzene or Gasohol ALSO ?


Recommended Posts

Hi Thaivisa.com Posters,

 

 

I am seriously considering buying a used Tata Xenon Hi-Terrrain X-Tend Cab 2.2 litre "dedicated CNG / NGV" Manual Pickup.

 

However, the location where it is to be based -- & it intended to serve for frequent short journeys of approx 8 km round trips & also 1 or 2 times weekly of 40 km round trips -- is approx 100 km away from nearest CNG filling station.

 

I am not sure if the version I was shown very briefly has 2 tank or 3 tanks ;

They are behind the Cab under an Original Equipment Manufacture Plastic Hood integral with the plastic tray of the open bay area.

 

 

By the way, I did notice :

the frame that they tanks sit on is sodden wet rusted steel.

I trust that there is a cheap & good solution to that particular problem.

Replacement with custom welded Aluminium frame or Stainless frame or Plastic frame or platform.

 

Y]

the gear stick is basically falling down to any side when not restrained.

The gear stick does work though ;

At least for 1 or 2 of the low gears in what was a very short demo around a block by the seller.

 

 

Anyway, returning to my main issue, can I run this vehicle on :

 

1.

LPG only ?

If "Yes", what is the necessary modification & cost involved ?

 

2.

LPG & alternatively CNG / NGV ?

If "Yes", what is the necessary modification & cost involved ?

 

3.

Benzene & alternatively CNG / NGV ?

If "Yes", what is the necessary modification & cost involved ?

 

4.

Gasohol & alternatively CNG / NGV ?

If "Yes", what is the necessary modification & cost involved ?

You said - " the gear stick is basically falling down to any side when not restrained. "

For that reason alone I would walk away.

Never heard of a conversion backwards - many done on diesel engines to run CNG but not CNG to run diesel AFAIK

Possible ? Worth it ? In Shallah

Sorry - no clue. Googled Tata Xenon and found two models diesel, one model gasoline. Seen many on the roads for years, but never looked inside, or under the hood. That being said Diesel engines can be converted to run on CNG - saw a Mitsubishi Triton undergoing this conversion when I had my car re-certified last year.
