The Octavia G-TEC is also capable of running on petrol. To switch between petrol and CNG fuels, the driver just needs to press a button on the dashboard. On CNG, the car will provide a range of 410 kms. On petrol, the car will go 920 kms. With both the CNG and petrol tanks filled to the brim, the car will do 1,330 kms. CNG powered cars cause lesser pollution than petrol or diesel powered cars since they burn more cleanly, leaving very little residue.
Thereby, many countries that care for the environment and that want to reduce air pollution due to automobiles introduce CNG fuel in a big way. India also has introduced CNG fuel mainly for transport vehicles like buses and autorickshaws. Some parts of India have CNG fuel outlets for cars as well. Delhi and Mumbai are two major cities that encourage CNG powered cars. More cities should join this group if India is to become a less polluted country.
