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!

  • CNG Filter?

    I recently purchased a 2011 F150 Bi-Fuel. There is a filter container on the frame rail under the passenger door just past the emergency shutoff. Does this filter need periodic service/cartridge change? I've put approximately 10,000 miles on the truck since I bought it.

    Yes, this coalescing filter removes oil and liquids from the CNG fuel. It should be drained and the filter replaced at regular intervals - at least every 30,000 miles but more frequently if you fill at stations with old compressors. Check out the "CNG Vehicle Filters" and "CNG Vehicle Filters Servicing" instructional videos here, taking special care to ensure there is no pressure in the lines!

      Thanks for the response! I have ordered a replacement cartridge online. I have no idea of the age of compressors at the stations I visit...

        I replaced the filter. Old one actually looked to be in very good condition.

        FOLLOWUP QUESTION: Is the CNG Prices page not being updated/monitored by anyone? Prices are all more than 6 months old...
