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!

  • warning air brake trucks

    I had a customer today that brought me a 2006 pete with a 60 detroit running duel fuel with a gas smell it was very strong and it was all around the truck and stronger when you stoped I found that the air brake compressor was plumbed in to the air intake manifold on the pressure side after the intercooler to give it a boost of air . this is normal on big diesel motors. so what was happening here was that when the gas was sucked into the turbo it was pushed in to the compressor and sent to the air storage tanks where than it went to the brakes and was released when the brakes were released so I pluged the intake and put a old style air filter on the compressor.these filters can be found on many 90s back gasoline trucks with air brakes.this is not good to have gas and air mixed under pressure
