  • Is there a way to have a CNG station without natural gas?

    I am in the process of purchasing a home, the only problem is the home does not have access to natural gas.
    It has a Propane tank.

    Short of converting my NGV to Propane I am not sure what I can do for fuel.

    Anyone know if there is a way to store natural gas?

    I guess the last question is... Is it possible to convert a Honda GX to propane?

    LNG can be stored , however , unless you are always drawing off the boiloff vapor, you will loose a lot of fuel. P G and E has at least one small station, with LNG as the gas supply using Fuelmaker FMQ's for compression. The PG and E guy has posted that they have a lot of compressor failures with this system. http://cngchat.com/forum/showthread....from-LNG-stock

    No legal way of converting the GX to LPG that I know of. Besides, LPG is higher in price than gasoline , except in the summertime, and a gallon of LPG has as little as 80,000 btu.

      PGE is one of GreenFuels many satisfied customers. The compressor failure at the LNG station is due to bearing failure. This is an issue related to the bearing grease and design. GreenFuels will be producing bearings in house within a few weeks that has solved pre-mature bearing failure in LNG and several other scenarios.

      The most common multi-axis bearing failure issue is improper bearing cleaning or over running the compressor past recommended hours. GreenFuels new bearing design will have superior materials and a one piece collar design. I will post some pictures of the new bearing collar and some extreme bearing damage next week.

      This is why it is important not to run your compressor past the recommended hours of the consumables by timer chip replacement. I don't know anybody who thinks it is a good idea to run an automotive engine to failure to avoid changing the oil.
