  • Smog check in California for CNG?

    Hi Curtis,

    I saw your post saying a CNG requires smog check in California. I must have sneaked by, because when I bought and registered my 2003 Crown Vic CNG last year, the DMV stated I did not require a smog check because it was CNG. I just checked the CA DMV site, and you're right - they changed it to 14,001 lbs or more exempt. Below that, you have to.

    I just moved to WA state, so I'll let everyone know what shakes down when I register my car here in the not too distant future.

    That's part of the beauty of driving a car no one knows anything about... To include most dealership salesman, DMV Clerks, smog officials, and CHP. Hell, if you get pulled over for something, just tell 'em that cng vehicles are exempt from whatever law they are trying to site you for... They probably wouldn't know the difference.

    On the other hand, it can be a bit of a challenge sometimes for the same reason. Most of you ngv owners know more about the laws and such than 99.9% of the people in the state, regardless of their position.

          Throw a bumper sticker on it that says, "Top Secret Experimental Test Vehicle", and it just might work. Thank him for stopping you and tell him that formula #877 of the radar absorbing paint has officially failed.
