## How much CNG can fill in a 12kg cylinder?

Let us start from the basics, first, let us tell you that only 12 kg of gas can be filled in a 60-liter cylinder. Yes, 1 kg of gas can be filled in a 5-liter cylinder. It does not depend on the capacity of the cylinder installed in your vehicle as to how much gas can be filled in the cylinder, rather it depends on the pressure available at the CNG fuel station.

This is something that is written in books, but it doesn’t happen in real life. Now let’s talk about real life, 10.5 kg gas can be filled in a 60 liter i.e. 12 kg CNG cylinder at the fuel station. If your car’s cylinder is empty and the pressure at the fuel station is 200 bars, then only 9 to 11 kg of CNG will come into your car’s cylinder.

Similarly, If you have a 14 Kg cylinder i.e. 65 litres then at most 11 Kg gas can be filled, not more than that.

## It Depends On How Much The Car Is Used

I will tell you an incident that I saw with my own eyes, Eeco and Ertiga cars have a 12kg CNG cylinder which comes fitted by the company. I bought an Eartiga car with a 2019 model CNG. Whenever I used to fill gas in it, no more than 7 kg gas could be filled in that 12 kg gas cylinder.

One day I saw another person at the fuel station filling 9 kg CNG in his Eartiga. I asked him when he bought this car, he said I bought this Eartiga car in 2016 which has run 60000 km. Then one day I saw 11 kg gas being filled in Eeco, so I asked the owner of that Eeco when did you buy this car. He said in 2014 it ran 11 lakh km. I understood from these sentences that the older the car is and the more it has run, the more CNG gas will be refilled in its cylinder.
