      The company doesn’t offer a factory fitted LPG kit with the Kwid, and we would recommend you to not get this installed outside the authorised network. You might lose your warranty in that case.

      You can, but we won’t recommend you to go for an aftermarket CNG kit. Since the company doesn’t offer a factory-fitted CNG kit, you may lose out on your warranty/guarantee.
