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!

  • overdrive light was blinking. what does that mean?

    the overdrive icon on my crown vic was for about twenty minutes while I was driving to work. After I stopped the car it stopped and hasnt blinked since. I am going to get it checked tomorrow because thats all the manual said to do. Does anyone know what this could mean?

    The Overdrive Blinking is usually an indicated that a troulble code has been originated by the transmission. Any OBD reared can cathc the code and determine the problem. In most instances it is a pressure issue in the transmission, and an inspection is necessary to determine the cause.

      Re: overdrive light was blinking. what does that mean?

      I am getting 8 mpg on my 99 crown victoria. a third of what it used to get. a diagnostic check did not read anything wrong with the car. I know i can do the basics spark plugs, filters, oil change. does a cng have a different fuel filter and is it expensive hard to replace? is there a possiblity that there is a gas leak? how could I tell if there is one?
