    I've read about problems with CNG in freezing weather. But, a system which starts on gasoline and then switches over should be ok, and I think the Ford system does that.

    I have driven to many places and many altitudes and not had any trouble with CNG. Unfortunately I do not know of any manufacturers offering a EPA certified conversion for any Nissan, I wish Nissan would do it, they are big on CNG in Asia. Public CNG stations fill timewise much the same as any other gas station. When filling at home with a FuelMaker it is considered "slow fill" or "time fill" since you are slowly filling the vehicle, compressing the gas directly into the vehicle tank from your low pressure home natural gas line, which would typically take over night.
    Fire codes do not allow storage of compressed gas at a residence, so fueling is directly into the vehicle tank.
    At the public CNG station they are pre-compressing the gas into storage cylinders, so when you drive up you can dump it straight into the vehicle.
    The nice thing about slow fill is you will get more fuel into the tank since there is less friction and less expansion of the fuel than doing a quick fill.
    I have 4 CNG vehicles at my house, haven't been to a regular gas station in a long time.

    I am just starting the process of looking into a cng vehicle. I need a 4x4 as I live at 9000 feet in the mountains of Utah. I have a 2005 nissan frontier and am thinking about converting the truck or selling it and finding a f150 or another option? wondering about cng in cold weather does it work well? , also how long does it take to fill a tank in a actual filling station? If anyone has some thoughts please let me know?
