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!

Spooky CNG fillup. CNG leaking from filler nozzle

    Here's pics of the CNG fill up nozzle underneath vehicle and above. I have not done any repairs to this area since the 'spooky'' fill up October 2017. I have not filled it since then and it's only driven about 4 miles since I parked it after the radiator blew a hole in it.
    The rubber cap on the nozzle seems to say "Staubli". Is that a brand of the valve? Maybe it's this 'receptacle' here?:
    On the underneath picture - what's the gold colored protrusion? A relief valve? A anti leak valve?

        I just sold the van last night. Very happy with the price. Happy buyer.
        Unlike last time around (for me) I fully and completely informed buyer about tanks being expired and what that really means.
        I drove to CNG station with him last night and showed him how to fill it
        It filled up normally, perfectly, not like the very last time I filled it up October 2017 and posted about it here - and the escaping CNG after I disconnected the nozzle.
