    New GM FACTORY CNG Truck

    A university near me has funding for 6 cng vans, and, ....guess what?....they cannot find anyone to do a CARB conversion.....they'll sell those old dedicated trucks when new ones arrive too! They currently run 33 CNG trucks, and believe in them.

    If all of us contact our local GM fleet sales guy in an Alt Fuels dealership and suggest that $1.50 fuel might perk up GM light truck sales, and we ask them to contact their corporate fleet guys.....Maybe we can get some traction.

    Someone in an earlier thread brought up the idea of also having Mfg promote fuelmaker........great idea to sidestep infrastructure too!


    Anyone care to help me build a running list of Alt Fuel Fleet SAles contacts ?

    1) Faulkner GMC, West Chester Pa, Steve Dragon, 1-610-436-0913

    Anyone know some corporate bigshots in Detroit?

    There's a company in Utah County that does new GM's called Maltees. Don't know how legit they are but they don't have a website and I don't know their contact info (I was just talking to a guy with a new GM truck that said that is what he and a group of his firefighting buddies do for work.).

    Good luck!

There is a tax rebate for this conversion based on the weight of the truck. Another thread in this forum discusses the exact figures. If you call BAF they can probably let you know which Ford dealers are doing this and in what states.

    Honda is the only manufacturer producing a factory CNG vehicle, the Civic GX.
    Everything else right now has to be a conversion.
    Everyone needs to speak up at their dealers to get CNG noticed.
    Unless they actually know of the need, they won't come back into production.

    GM has not taken any orders for NGV's since Feb 2006.
    So you are not going to find a new silverado, unless you pay someone to
    convert it.
    We urge everyone to write GM and tell them you want one.

    New GM Truck NGV

    I am interested in buying a NGV Silverado. I live in Indiana and have talked to some dealers and they don't know anything about it. Does anyone have an idea where I should go?
