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!

  • Switching over from gas to natural gas

    Help, I have recently purchased a 1992 dodge Dakota with a dual gas and natural gas system. I have not used the natural gas but when my wife ran out of gas it automatically switched over to natural gas. The controller has a manual fuel select but is does not respond and advise, reset etc any help would be appriecatied.

    Need a little more info:

    What system is on the vehicle, it's not a factory system.
    Check the label under the hood (indicating what system it is and who installed it)
    Give us any other identifying marks and information on system components that you can:
    sytem pressure. tank manufacturer, expiration dates, pressure regulator manufacturer, is a mixer type system or injection system, ETC

    It looks as if you're from BC, the system maybe an Eco or Technocarb

    Some of us on the site will know something

    Welcome aboard

      Ok, I will post more information. In the cab the controler has the ECO logo on it.

        Re: Switching over from gas to natural gas

        We have propane and are thinking about converting to natural gas.

        Our neighbors have natural gas, so it would mean extending the line approximately 100 yards. Total cost for the switchover would be somewhere around $4,000.

        I'm wondering how long it would take to recoup the expenses. We live in a 3,100 s.f. house with high ceilings in a couple rooms.
