  • Tax Credit info on Conversions in Utah

    I originally thought that to receive the $2500 tax credit in Utah for a cng converted vehicle, the conversion had to be certified by the EPA. However, this is NOT the case.

    A co-worker of mine bought a 2000 Silverado conversion. This conversion is not listed by the EPA as a certified conversion, so he called the DEQ to see what documentation he needed to provide. The DEQ told him that he needs an ASE certified mechanic to verify that the vehicle runs on CNG. He specifically asked him about the EPA certification, and the DEQ said that that was not required.

    Dec. 2008 Note from forum staff:
    This is no longer the case. For nearly a year now DEQ has been rejecting tax credit applications for conversions which do not include a copy of the EPA Certificate of Conformity. Details:

      You can also look up conversion shops to do the work in the CNG Service & Conversions forum:

        The EPA list that John is talking about lists only those kits that are certified by the EPA. The best way to find out what kits are available (EPA certified and non-certified), is to visit the websites of the kit manufacturers. Here are few:

        BayTech (mostly Chevrolet)
        www.baytechcorp.com

        EcoFuel (Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge)
        www.ecofuel.com

        You can do a search and probably find more kit manufacturers. These two are probably the most popular.

            Hi John - thanks! Our Ford products are EPA AND CARB certified. Keep in mind that a number of states have now adopted CARB's more stringent emission standards, so an EPA certified system would not meet the state requirement in these specific cases, though it is an "approved" system.

            I trust this helps.
