        Re: diesel - CNG

        Do you know anyone who is converting large diesel's to CNG. I am talking about off road equipment. Dirt working equipment and tractors and the such. I read that in Australia the mine equipment is running on CNG. Are these diesel conversions or 100% CNG engines.

          The Cummins dealer here in Phoenix has swapped out some diesels to the Cummins natural gas engine.
          Emission Solutions in Texas has an EPA approved retrofit Engine available for the International DT466. Qualifies for the Federal $20,000.00 tax credit.

                diesel - CNG

                I'm subscribing to this thread. I'm interested in a kit for my 2005 5.9 Cummins Turbo Diesel. I'm looking for a kit that will mix with the diesel to make the truck more fuel efficient. I'm not looking to be on the border line of being dangerious running the cng to squeeze every last MPG out of the truck if you know what I mean. I'm seeing 24MPG out of my truck as it is. Thanks!

                      Is this an EPA approved conversion and who is the manufacturer of the conversion kit?

                        As far as I can tell The Clean Air Act is for a car or pickup that "run solely on natural gas " or a car or pick up that runs on either " run solely on natural gas alternative fuel engine conversion systemshttp://www.ngvamerica.org/pdfs/marke...ses.NGVs-a.pdf .

                          Sounds like you're talking about Ak Miller, Was lucky to have good ol bulls session about gaseous fuel about a year before he died -- neat guy.

                          His wife (ex wife?? ) Marilyn was selling CNG and LP mixers and regulators, use to get stuff from her. Real neat gal. She got a hold of the old casting cores from OHG (Dick Baberstock of original Impco) had some made up, CNC machined them and had them anodized. Took care of the sticking problems on mixer. Depending on which system you wanted to run (CNG or LP) you just changed the pins in the air valve mixer and used the correct regulator; X-1 for CNG or X-2 for LP. I run the LP system.

                          Marilyn just disappeared for the scene according to a good friend who knew Ak and Marilyn for many years -- Don Bass, one of the originals of CNG.

                            You are right AK, he and his brothers were frinds of my uncle from the Road Runners and SCCA.

                              I am a ford and dodge dealer in Texas. I also host a saturday morning syndicated radio show dubbed 'top gear' who on this forum is well versed in light truck diesel-CNG conversions that I could have call in the show and share with our listeners about this new technology?

                              my website is www.gowolfe.com take a look, click on top gear for more info

                                To LarryCNG and Youngkin and others that may have an opinion or even facts. I have got conflictng answers as to a diesel/cng conversion requiring a cert. Some facts I have to consider.

                                1. Bully Dog in operation for years injects propane into diesel for added power but nothing limits it to temporary injecting vs. running it full time. Bully does NOT have an EPA for this kit.
                                2. The diesel CNG kit I installed has no tie in to any emmission components of the vehicle, there or no simulators, no trickery of any sort. In fact the only electrical is a 12v toggle switch that powers the lock off. THAT IS IT!
                                3. I can choose to only us the NG when climbing hills but if I get improved MPG and emmissions why wouldn't I choose to run it full time.
                                4. The conversion was installed to the highest standards with safety in mind by trained and certified technicians. I believe Bully Dogs allows self installs.
                                5. At no time is the vehicle ever running 100% CNG. In fact while running CNG there is no manual or electrical control of the amount of diesel entering the engine. Diesel entering the engine is purely regulated by the engines need and the accelerator. Again no electronics or trickery to restrict diesel flow either.
