Maruti Suzuki S-CNG technology has set new benchmarks in green mobility. The cars are specifically designed for CNG system. Maruti Suzuki is the first manufacturer in India to introduce factory-fitted CNG Technology. While CNG cars are gaining popularity, it is imperative to know a few tips that will help you to maintain your S-CNG vehicle better and help you drive miles, without even worrying about performance and durability.
1. Switch to the Petrol Mode to turn on the ignition always
Maruti Suzuki S-CNG cars are programmed to start in petrol mode and automatically switch to CNG based on engine temperature. This lubricates the engine and minimizes the wear and tear. However, at any point, one is free to manually switch to petrol as per requirement, but it is recommended to drive initially in petrol and keep the vehicle in Auto Mode for it to automatically switch to CNG mode. It is advisable not to press the accelerator pedal while changing the mode manually from petrol to CNG.
2. Get your car serviced at regular intervals
Regular servicing is critical for all cars. Spark plugs in CNG vehicles should be cleaned and checked every 20,000 kms or 12 months. Perishable parts like air filters are used more while driving car in CNG mode, so make sure to pay your service station a visit as per the service schedule. The CNG cylinder should be checked every 5 years from the date of last testing/retesting of cylinder by government authorized CNG cylinder testing agency.
All Maruti Suzuki cars come with warranty benefits that are extendable up to 5 years. The vast network of 3,500 service stations across the country makes regular servicing convenient.
3. Trust ONLY a specialist
Make sure that your CNG car is in the hands of a trained expert at a Maruti Suzuki authorized service centre always. The neighbourhood garage mechanic may cost less, but it exposes your car to the risk of increased engine vibration or irregular acceleration.
4. Listen to your vehicle:
Every Maruti Suzuki S-CNG car comes with a CNG malfunction Warning Lamp in the dashboard.
In both situations, it is recommended to have your vehicle checked at a Maruti Suzuki authorized workshop.
5. Safety Precautions
By following these simple and essential tips, you can be assured of durability and excellent performance from your S-CNG car. The most important take away is to have regular service at an authorized service centre. Knowing your vehicle is in safe hands will always give you confidence and peace of mind.
