I want to know that in LPG version, which is the best car(second hand)? I am going for brands like Wagon R because the maintenance cost is less( Cost per kg -23 while petrol costs nearly double)... Can you name couple of more brands with the prices... I stay in Mumbai..
If your city has the option for CNG, it would be a much better choice given that CNG is comparitively safer than LPG and also operational cost is 1/3rd of petrol.

In many LPG websites consumer safety concerns are a main point of interest and they all try to put their consumers at ease by answering typical questions related to the safety of LPG within cars i.e. (www.fuleture.com) answers the following questions related to safety.
Is LPG safe?
Yes LPG is perfectly safe. In fact, the LPG tank in your car, van or taxi is actually tougher and safer than a traditional petrol tank
What happens if I’m involved in an accident?
The LPG tank will automatically shut off the gas supply – keeping you safe
Is it safe to have petrol and LPG tanks in the same car?
Yes – LPG cars are very safe. Your LPG tank has gone through a huge amount of tough testing – including pressure-testing and strength-testing. LPG tanks shut down the gas supply if you have an accident.
