    Nearest dealer is in Birmingham Alabama. I've got an e-mail out to them and will see what they say.

    It's a great price. Probably already gone. Check to see where the nearest FM dealer is and how much a compressor swap costs.

You'll want to know as much as you can about the unit, how old it is, how many hours are on the unit (count on a ~$1K cost for a rebuilt compressor to give you another 4000 hours). Note also that there could be other maintenance items to consider. I just had to spend over $700 to get a rebuilt fill valve (my fill valve developed a slow leak and that is the going rate for one small part on the unit; ours was purchased new 7 years ago and has close to 7000 hours on it, original 3000 plus we're almost thru our first rebuilt compressor)
    Thanks, I have sent an e-mail and with follow up with those type questions.

    It seems the install should be a pretty easy process (mot much regulation of this type thing in West TN) if I can find a fueling unit. Guess I could get a Phill as those seem to be easier to find, but the stories on this site have me afraid to go that route.

    Maybe, if you got that number from Phx Energy in GA website, they do not have any available. They come and go mostly go, the best price I have found is $8,800 plus installlation for a new unit.

    I'm ordered my GX today, waiting for an arrival date.

    Is $5,500 good for a FMQ2-36

    That has been rebuilt by a dealer to factory specifications?

    I am thinking about getting a CNG vehicle, but live in Tennessee and will only be able to fuel at home. So I want to make sure that I can get an affordable unit installed before I even begin to look seriously at cars. I have seen one offered for this price and wonder if that's reasonable.
