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!

    I'm not holding my breath, remember when g.e./Eaton got like 15 million of tax payer money to develop a 500$ home compressor. ...what a waste on a pipe dream

    Let's get more coltri mch5s in the u.s. straight from italy for 5k a pop and avoid the nuvair/greenline 300% markups.

      Unfortunately, straight from Italy, they don't meet standards for installation in the US. If they did, I would be selling a TON of them.

        The 300% marked up Coltri mch5 modified by greenline doesn't either if your talking nfpa52, the basic coltri mch5 can and has been authorized by some cities for residential installation.

        Then there are some that just install it, to some it's worth saving several thousands of dollars a year and don't even get the city involved in what goes on in their private property.
