  • The Gas Company survey

    Got a call recently from the gas company if I want to take part of a survey and I agreed.
    Today I got the link. It did not indicate that it is a limited survey, just that I got the link because I agreed to take part.
    So I want to share the link with all of you who want take part, too

    I also took the survey. I think they got my name and number from my at-home fueling appliance (VRA) application.

    After reflecting awhile on the questions being asked, I believe that the survey was an attempt to solicit positive comments on SoCalGas'/Sempra's NGV efforts. Because I also believe that SoCalGas let their Anaheim station wither up and die from neglect I could not, in good faith, give them the positive feedback they were seeking. (Of course, I thanked Trillium for taking the time to revive and maintain one of the busiest CNG pumps I have ever seen.)

    FYI: As for posting your link to the survey, I would be careful. If this survey is like others I've taken, that link is keyed directly to your invite (read: your e-mail address). The others who take part in the survey using your link may be speaking for you personally. Comparing my survey link to the one listed in your post reveals that every character between the "8" and the ".htm" are different. Chances are that those divergent characters will allow the survey taker to differentiate between responses to your invite and responses to mine.

      That was interesting, I wonder if CE is courting the So Cal Gas company with Phills?

        Johnny ~ You may be on to something. The survey did ask whether those who had VRA's if they would rather use public refueling stations.

        Of course, my FM-4 has been sitting in my garage for 18 months just waiting to be installed...

          I got the same call a month or so ago. Still waiting for the link to be emailed to me.

            Got the call and took the survey. I thought some of the questions did not have enough choices. Because, I bought my car used I could not answer their questions about rebates. It seems the assumption was you bought new, knew about the rebates and used them or not.

            However, I made comments to the effect that they are dropping the ball by not supporting their own stations, and not marketing well enough to the general public. I also siad that phil was too expensive due to the unit and installation being a monopoly.

            My feeling about the whole thing was that they are feeling out getting into the HRA leasing business. Reasonable HRA's would be great. But, that does not encourage building an infrastructure that would support wide spread acceptance. Hard to go on long drives without public infrastructure...

              This is an interesting option:

              I would like the option of leasing the refueling appliance from The Gas Company, rather than having to purchase it.
              My only hope are that it is either not the Phill, or if it is, it isn't so ridiculously priced. From the company's perspective, it would make much more sense for them to maintain an inventory of easily rebuildable compressors for customer lease.

              I can install that for you... only caveat is it has to be next to my garage..

                Yes, I'm sure you could. Somehow, it won't look as nice in Riverside as it would in the O.C.

                But then again, the orientation of my garage and home on my lot may / will not permit easy installation. And my driveway won't allow me to install and operate it entirely outdoors...it would have to installed in the open . . .

                I should probably sell it (but don't want to).

                  Not sure if it's an option for you (or even something that can be done with an FM4), but I've had good luck using FMQ2-36 remote panels in two different installations; one because there was no room anywhere near the driveway, and the other due to a strict HOA that wasn't impressed with the idea of putting my FM compressor in the front yard.

                    Thanks for the tip. I have the remote panel already, although I'm missing the 30' line for connecting the unit to the panel. I've diagramed out the possible installation sites and the whole thing is just frustrating. About the only acceptable site is the location of my home's a/c compressor. Good because it already has 220 wiring, bad becuase it's very expensive to move.
