Hey gang, CNGchat needs your help!

For over a decade we have enjoyed providing this little corner of the Internet for folks to discuss all things natural gas vehicles. It is the largest forum of its kind: with some 70,000 posts on over 11,000 topics. But with continued low gasoline & diesel prices and strong automaker support for electric vehicles, consumer interest in CNG has dropped considerably, and with it has visitor traffic here. As a result, Google ad revenues no longer cover hosting fees.

If you find CNGchat to be a useful resource then please consider making a modest donation to support keeping this remarkable pool of knowledge available to the alternative fuels community. Thanks!

They are pressurized, which means users must take special precautions when it comes to proper maintenance, replacement and disposal. Because of the potential safety hazards of improper care, it's important to know the useful life of a CNG cylinder and to strictly follow recommended replacement times.

    Determining Useful Life
    The most obvious way to determine the useful life of a CNG cylinder is the expiration date listed on the cylinder's label.

      Dimmick said the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation has seen CNG tanks fail. And, while these incidents are few, they are serious in nature.



      When in doubt, Horne of the Clean Vehicle Education Foundation said the best rule of thumb is to never deviate from code and manufacturer guidelines.
