  • Cost to convert delivery truck

    I am working on the economics of CNG truck conversion. Does anyone know the approximate cost to convert a typical delivery truck to an EPA certified CNG truck?

    Depending on year , make , and model, Fuel capacity anywhere from 16,500 to 40,000 huge range I know but accurate.

      If the GVWR is over 14,000 lbs the conversion qualifies for a $20,000 federal tax credit. From 8,500 to 14,000 GVWR it is $8,000.

      What make/model are you after?

        I don't know yet. I will try to get some details soon. I am starting to work out the economics of getting a fleet of delivery trucks converted and needed an idea. I will see if I can get some specifics.

          In addition to the tax credits described above, the TX Land Office has grants for heavy-duty CNG vehicles in counties with poor air quality.

            I have put some smaller gsa vehicles in my fleet and even added refrigeration,
            bi-fuel and dedicated. Low miles and huge savings

              CNGPizza, so the CNG was used as fuel for refrigeration? If so, how does that compare to refrigeration for other fuel?

                no, the reefer was run off the engine, which powered the compressor, cng powered the vehicle. Dedicated appears to be easier less crap in the way.
                although bi-fuel is nice in a place like chicago that has limited cng.
