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!

  • Tank Inspection

    My tank in my '04 Cavalier expires this month, but registration doesn't need to be renewed until next year. I am trying to figure out if I should get the 3 yr inspection done.

    With house bill 265 being signed into law and going into effect on Jan 1, 2018, am I right in my understanding that a tank inspection will no longer be required?

    It's not part of the emissions inspection right?

    Welcome to CNGchat, Ender16!
    I think you are right that from 2018 Utah will no longer have vehicle safety inspection requirements. And if you were to get your tank inspected after this month it would fail anyway (and tank life can't be extended). So from a legal standpoint you are OK. But from a safety standpoint I would strongly consider getting the tank replaced. Try Lancer Auto here in SLC as I know they have done these in the past. 801-268-8863

      Thanks for the info. I think my tank should actually be in pretty good shape. I know there are other factors, but of the 128,000 miles driven, around 94,000 were on regular gasoline.
