There has always been a debate about whether Maruti Suzuki’s factory-fitted S-CNG or locally-fitted CNG is better for your car. While the locally-fitted aftermarket CNG appears to be ‘more value for money’ at the time of installation, S-CNG is any day superior.
Driving the Point Home
Factory-fitted S-CNG technology by Maruti Suzuki is integrated from the ground-up on the factory floor and offers better performance, unmatched convenience, and enhanced safety. The emphasis of this piece is on the ‘safety’ of S-CNG technology so let’s get straight to it.
What Makes Factory-Fitted S-CNG Technology a Safer Option?
Corrosion-Resistant and Leak-Proof Pipeline Structure
S-CNG technology uses stainless steel pipes with patented Ferrule joints across the CNG pipeline. That makes it corrosion-resistant and leak-proof, and hence safer and durable in the long run.
Integrated Wiring Harness
The complete electrical system (harness) is so integrated that no tampering or temporary joints are created. As a result, any chances of short-circuits are completely eliminated.
Micro-Switch and NGV Receptacle
Both these features have important roles to play in making an S-CNG car safer. The micro-switch engine ensures that the car engine does not start when CNG is being refilled. NGV receptacle, which is placed right where you’ll find the fuel lid in a petrol car, is designed to be durable and enables faster refilling of CNG.
Built to Last
The durability of components significantly contributes to how safe a car is in the long run. Engineered to meet the best manufacturing quality standards, the factory-fitted S-CNG cars by Maruti Suzuki deliver the maximum engine durability. Enhanced components like the valve seats in the cylinder head, special cylinder, and the top-notch mounting parts are designed to enhance the lifespan of the engine.
