About CNG Cars 

With fuel prices hitting the roof, alternative fuels like CNG (compressed natural gas) are becoming a viable option for daily drives. Unlike most other petroleum based fuels, the price of CNG has not appreciated as drastically over time. Most modern CNG vehicles are equipped with sequential injection systems that are easy to maintain and provide a respectable mileage. While driving on CNG, you will hardly see a difference between running CNG and other fuel systems like petrol. Additionally, the fuel is otherwise better for the environment as it emits lesser toxic gases into the air in comparison to other fuels. There are many advantages of CNG, while the government has prescribed the adoption of the use of this fuel in commercial vehicles within city limits.

Insurance for CNG cars

Getting your CNG car insured is much the same and just as important as getting insurance for any other car. Keep in mind, if you get a CNG kit fitted on an existing vehicle i.e. it’s not part of the standard company fitment, you will need permission from the RTO before you can get the car insured. When deciding on CNG car prices and which car suits your needs the best, make sure to go over specifications like engine capacity and number of seats. You can also choose from a number of different variants in the CNG category.

It is also important to go over warranty terms for the best CNG car under 6 lakhs. Certain manufacturers are known to provide up to 4 years of warranty at the time of vehicle purchase. This will save you considerable hassles later in life. Once you have found your dream car below 20 Lakh, make sure to give your car the much needed protection of a good motor insurance. In the event of an accident or natural calamity, your car will be protected for any eventually.
