  • Replace tanks or sell?

    2003 F150 (not bi-fuel -- CNG only) with three type-1 tanks -- expired.

    Local shop (Las Vegas) wants $6,000 just for the replacement tanks, plus labor.

    I've had this truck for years. Bought it from the city for cheap. It owes me nothing. Best, most-reliable truck I've ever owned. If it goes, I'll be sorry to see it go. But in a couple years, I'm moving to an area with NO CNG filling stations. So spending this kind of money for a truck which will most certainly be sold in two years old less makes no sense to me.


    Trying to decide:

    1) Is there a better option for tank replacement? I'd keep it for a year or two more if the cost to get it back up to spec wasn't so high.
    2) Is there a market for such a truck, despite the expired tanks?

      I would find one used tank for a couple hundred dollars with a couple of years left on it and put it in the bed..
