  • CNG Conversion Facilities in North East.

    Hi all, Posted the request in another thread but got no response. Are there any facilities in the North East that perform CNG conversions for indicidual vehicles. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know of any shops in particular. I would suggest that you call the conversion manufacturers (Baytech, BAF, etc. ) and see if they have any installers in your area.

        Thanks for the replies.

        The transcoenergy site linked above has a page where folks on the East Coast interested in converting their vehicles can sign up. They claim they have every conversion kit available but cannot apply for EPA certification process as its expensive. If they have enough customers waiting to covert, they might apply for the certification.

        I did sign up since the process is free. The page is linked below:

        There are a good number of people that have already signed up and the link below takes you the list:

        So may be they actually will get certified. I wish we could have more companies doing conversions on the East Coast.

          If your car is a previously approved platform--say, a 2003 Ford Taurus-- the guys at Transeco in Asheville, NC, will be glad to get the approval paperwork for you. At this point, the EPA approval regulations are the biggest hurdle to CNG conversions in the US market.

          If you wander over to http://www.ngvc.org, their website keeps a list of approved platforms that can be refitted for CNG.

          If you drive an import, you're basically out of luck. American machinery gives you a few more choices, and if you have a V8, YEE-HAH! I am leaning in that direction.

          Is it better to have a gas guzzler chugalugging clean fuel or a fuel economy special that still has to run on petro? I have decided that the former is better for now, because we need to get across the messages of diversified transportation fuels innoculating the economy against fuel shocks as well as the idea that CNG is a good enough fuel source that smaller vehicles--minivans, midsize sedans, what have you--can run just fine on it as well as those of us who actually need and use trucks.

          Best of luck with your endeavors,

          Andy-Paul
