  • New to CNG, looking for answers on GMC

    Hi everyone! Very interested in converting my 2003 GMC Sierra pickup to dual fuel use, unleaded and CNG. Vehicle has a 5.3L V-8. Where should I start? I am located in St. Louis, MO and have found it impossible to find information on this subject locally. Thanks in advance and GREAT SITE!

    Shuboy,

    Check out the CNG Service & Conversions Forum. There is a thread about service shops.

    I believe there is one from Missouri there.

          Well, after talking to Jim here in St. Louis, it looks like my hope of conversion is dashed. Cost to convert my GMC around $10,000, home fueling station another $8000. Cannot justify the expense compared to miles driven. Any lower cost options out there would be appreciated. Thanks, Rob

            If you are willing to go with a dedicated CNG conversion then you would get a $4,000 federal tax credit ($8,000 if 3/4 ton or heavier). Your state might also offer additional assistance:

              As far as the refueling device goes, you can pick up a used unit on EBay, or through this forum for somewhere in the neighborhood of $4500-$5500.

              You also live in an area of the country where cng vehicles are still very reasonable. if you ask Jim, he may even run into used equipment from time to time, as well as used trucks that are either dedicated or dual-fuel for (if you are lucky) half of the conversion cost.

              Watch out for GSA auctions in your area. I've also seen city and county auctions that sell off used cng equipment. It may not be easy, or convenient, to make this switch, but that's what makes us special... We love a challenge.
