Abstract

this paper is related to one of the basic needs of a common man today viz. the VEHICLES. In general we all use vehicles daily; either two wheelers or four wheelers. Petrol has always been the main fuel for automobiles. The continuous hikes in petrol prices and problem of pollution due to petrol have made people to think for some alternative of petrol. Technical experts have suggested the use of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) as an alternative of petrol for automobiles. They have estimated that apart from being less hazardous and environment friendly, it can help in reducing the levels of pollutant emissions to great extent. It is quite cost effective. Its extensive use in automobiles has the efficacy to reduce excessive dependence on petroleum imports. Now days the use of CNG has increased as a fuel in automobiles. But the CNG cannot be used as only fuel in the vehicles because of speed and pick up constrains. Thus petrol is always needed to provide the required speed and pick up. Therefore, the switching is required in the vehicles to switch the engine from CNG to petrol and vice-versa. The manual switching is provided in the vehicles. It will be very helpful for the user if automatic switching is provided in the vehicles. This paper gives the details of automatic switching from petrol to CNG and vice-versa.
