Another thing you might consider is that an EPA approval is required, depending on the manufacturing year of the vehicle, to get an aftermarket conversion.

We are not after approvals and other bureaucratic BS. The point is how to fuel up your vehicle with CNG using gas from your home without buying super expensive and not reliable Fuelmaker.

I glad there was no CSA UL EPA etc. 2000 years ago we would still try to approve a wheel.....

If you're in Canada, things might be easier to you. But you know, EPA seems to not be really focused on environmental protection, if we consider that CNG not just burns cleaner but can also be sourced from renewable materials even easier than ethanol...

Anyway, in other countries (including mine) a decent CNG kit is not so expensive at all.

No matter how you burn CNG VS Diesel Cng will burn cleaner. It is easy to make your diesel truck to smoke try to smoke CNG..... EPA is just a good example of bureaucratic machine...

When it comes to adding CNG to a Diesel vehicle you are not converting it to run on CNG you are replacing expensive smoking stinky Diesel with cheap clean CNG.... 50/50 mix means you use 50% diesel 50% cng.

I converted my Astrovan to propane and drove it over 100k. My oil was always clean even after 10k. Last accident sent to dump unfortunately...

Its been in eastern europe for a long time. certified mechanics do the conversions at a reasonable cost and the cars have a switch the can burn gasoline or natural. Many stations have both available. I was going to have my car converted but came back to the US early. I had a friend with a old Skoda that ran on both. Here everyone will get ripped off to have something "new" that is not new at all!

We have a 2008 Nissan Versa Sedan with 110,000km on it. The past year we have had problems with the AC. A few months ago, it stopped working again so we brought it in to out local mechanic. He thought at first there was a hole in the hose but he couldnt find it. After a lot of inspection and trying different things he came to the conclusion the compressor is gone.Then contact AC Repair Cypress and they are awesome .

There are diving boosters around. They use compressed air to move gas from one source to another.

They had a few cheap ones on aliexpress aswell.
