    On papers your calculations looks good but the real world mileage of a petrol car is around 11-13 in city at best, with 1-2 persons in car. Same goes for CNG, it should be around 20. For highway the numbers in article are reasonable with little deviation. Considering that petrol mileage would be atleast 5-7 Rs/km cheaper and a cng versios would be doing breakeven in 15-20k kms.
