    Can you tell me a little more? Protocols or tests run, cost, when, who did you talk to at the state, were you able to claim the tax credit, etc.? You can PM me if you'd like.

    Thanks,

    I would check with Matt Carlile (801-536-4136) from the Division of Air Quality. I understand what you are trying to do, but I think the list of testing labs is for full EPA certification. I don't know if the $850 lab test you are talking about is what the state is requiring. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't want to throw down $850 and find out that it was in vain.

    EPA testing on YOUR vehicle

    Has anyone actually had their cng vehicle tested at a lab that does EPA testing to see if it actually meets the EPA's requirements (40 C.F.R. Part 86)? What was your experience?
    According to Utah law, if your conversion does not have an EPA certificate of conformity, you can get it tested at a lab. There are no labs in Utah so I called one in So Cal this morning. I was told that they are starting to get some business from Utah and that they could do the test. It takes 3 days and costs $850. If that's what it takes to get the $2500 credit from the state and be legal, it's worth it since I'll be down in So Cal in Dec. anyway.

    Thanks,
