CNG line ups….gone!


Inaugurated on November 1, Mahr CNG Filling Station, is probably one of the first exclusive CNG stations set up under licence from an Oil Marketing Company. There are other exclusively CNG pumps as well, however they are not licenced under any specific OMC.

This pump has a capacity to fuel 10 cars simultaneously since its launch, and the owners have plans to expand the capacity to filling 20 cars simultaneously.

In addition, the owners are also considering setting up a dedicated section for CNG buses, that might be launched soon.

So there you have it, with 10 cars being fuelled simultaneously, I seriously don’t think that there would be too much of a CNG line issue here, even in peak traffic hours.

Location: Shahrah e Faisal, coming from the airport, to the left just past the COD/Drigh Road intersection

    Friend’s CNG at baloch colony signal can serve 8 cars at a time. Although it siutated at a congested location, the throughput is not too bad there.

    The OMC here is Shell, and the personnel there are also in Shell uniform. The place is clean, and the personnel are also very quick to attend to customers.

    You didn’t mention the LCD displays they’ve put up in place of the regular meters. When nothing is there to be displayed, they run a screen saver :)

    The first LCD enabled CNG pump I saw is in Gulistan-e-johar (caltex pump near abdullah apartments)

    10 cars at a time is IMPRESSIVE! BUT, can anyone please confirm the gas pressure they have? Anything below 200 is not worth it and means that you pay for more and get lowwww mileage.

    Even though I don’t have CNG in my new car, I am planning to get one fixed. Still, great information!

    Indeed this is seemingly a convenient option. However, the owner of this cng station is a thieving stealing a**hole who has accumulated the capital by cheating others of their money. I doubt if such a characterless owner will be giving his customers their money’s worth. Avoid this cng station at all costs if u want to discourage such dubious ‘businessmen’.

    Imran Ali, why don’t you please tell us the name of this business man, and how he made money? No use trying to protect the identity of criminals.
