  • Is support for NGVs growing in British Columbia ?

    I just found the following WEB Site, that did not exist on June 5, 2008, but did appear in a GOOGLE SEARCH some time between June 5, 2008 and June 7, 2008 :

    Please, we need additional fueling stations in B.C.

    Re: Is support for NGVs growing in British Columbia ?

    I have been writing letters to the press and politicians. Penner recently made an announcment about green support. No mention of CNG vehecle support. We used to get the tax credits and rebates, but no more. CNG is no glamourous, yet.

    I just called teresen, they have a $2500 grant for cars/trucks with CNG. Waiting to hear more details from the manager. Will report back soon.

    http://greenfleetsbc.com also has a green fuels map. But it is terribly out of date for CNG stations. They must have used old data.

    It is sad to see how many CNG stations we have lost. According to the map I once could have driven my CNG truck to Kamloops from Vancouver.

      Hi CanAm :

      At least there is some sort of minor involvement towards supporting NGVs. I agree, CNG has not become glamorous enough for the current B.C. Provincial Government. Perhaps, I will get off my ---, and write Mr. Penner, and Mr. Neufeld, asking for support to encourage use of CNG as a vehicle fuel.

      If the Province of B.C. is serious about reducing CO2, from vehicle exhaust, they really do need to provide financial incentives for encouraging people to convert/adapt to CNG as a CLEANER vehicle fuel. I don't think it is fair to simply pound Gasoline and Diesel fuels with the Carbon tax, without providing a cleaner option. CNG, as a vehicle fuel, is the perfect option.

      I also saw Terasen Gas's ancient map that showed all the CNG Stations we used to have. Back in the 90's, I did fuel up in Vernon, Kelowna, Kamloops, Merrit, and Penticton, driving from Vancouver. I used to go to the Okanogan Valley all the time. It was great.

      I wrote Terasen an Email to inform them how out dated their CNG map was. I also asked Terasen if they planned to install any CNG filling stations. The answer I received back was "No". I also let Terasen know about www.cngprices.com

      I am real interested to hear any additional information that Terasen Gas offers towards grants, in addition to their $2,500.00 grant. Please report back

        keep me updated too please. I'm in victoria and we only have one pump for the whole island. We need more pumps. And if that grant is real, I'll be all over it!

              I sent them a SASE. Waiting for them to send it out.

              Now I may head down to Mexico for an $800 conversion. Maybe they will give me $2500 back on that too!

                I am just coming back to c.n.g. I had my 1981 Impala on natural and I got the equivilent of 35 m.p.g. This was in 1989. The road is uphill, people. First came deregulation then the stations shut down and then the Province allowed the giveaway of the gas then the present govt. refuses to look at ng. The oil companies don,t want us to have a choice. I still have my old system and tanks and by God I will get some answers shortly. I contacted Kevin Kruegar but he is too busy . He will be getting involved because it is getting to be a big issue here in B.C. what with the oil companies running wild.These guys better come up with a new grant or no election for them HAHAHah>>> SERIOUSLY ,THE FUEL IS GREAT. THE CAR RUNS BETTER, THE EMISSIONS ARE LOWER, THE GAS IS ALMOST UNLIMITED.
                tThank you, Clint

                  Hi CanAm :

                  I see from the CNG Main Forum that you received your Form from Terasen. May I ask what company you plan to use to get your vehicle adapted to run on Natural Gas ?

                  Just so that you know, I've had real good service from Del's Automotive in Delta.

                  Thanks

                      We need ng really bad. I used to have it in my 1981 Impala wagon. Gasoline was 47 cents a litre and all through the 90,s I saved big bucks. Best thing was lack of cylinder wear in my engine. Contact your MLA and demand it along with a reduced carbon tax to reflect the clean burning deal!!!
