  • High from Moab, Utah

    Hi Folks, just found this site although I have had a bi-fuel chevy corsica for a couple years. I bought it from a fellow who watches the state vehicle auctions. I live in Moab part time and in Santa Cruz CA part time and travel quite a bit. I have a few questions which I will ask here and maybe in other places too since I am not quite sure how to best do this.
    First, I would like to meet other CNG folks in these areas (and even beyond) and eventually to help get more info out on alternative fuel vehicles. (Happy Earth Day by the way!)
    I am also very interested in advice about the best and cheapest way to buy and set up a CNG fueling system. What is the comparison of Phill, C3, FM4 and if any of these are available near Utah.
    I am wondering if anyone has a Phill and lives in a couple places and if you have tried to move it back and forth sucessfully.
    As I travel with the bi-fuel vehicle outside Utah, I have not found it very handy with all the different types of stations and high costs. Have some of you found a way to move through this West Coast maze gracefully and cheaply?
    Thanks to all of you who are making a difference with your vehicle!

    redrockrico,

    Thanks for joining the CNGChat community. We hope you will find CNG friends here. I live in Roy, Utah. Unfortunely, we don't "get together" often here in Utah as a CNG community. Probably your best bet on a CNG get together is Curtis' Cruise In on June 14-15 in Antelope Valley, CA. You can check the link below for details.

    John Mitton has also put together a comparison of the Phill and the FMQ-2-36 refueling appliances. I have attached the document (I can't find it on CNGChat).

      I researched Phill vs. FMQ (both by FuelMaker) and posted my comparison here:

        Re: Want to buy home fueling device

        None of the compressors that I know of are transportable. Size, weight and safety are prohibiting factors.

        While the Phill has an attractive first cost, slow fueling rate and not being field serviceable work against it. Most other FuelMaker compressors are readily available on the resale market (with a bit of patience).

          Devo,

          Sorry for the mishap. I'll give you the credit (it seems my mind is failing me - hopefully that is the only thing going out).

            Hi, glad to see we have someone from Moab in this forum!!

            Have you found any solutions for Moab? I live in Park City and wanted to drive my brand new 2009 civic gx to Moab on December 9th to run the 10k but found out that:

            1) the fueling station in Price operates at about 2,000 psi, which means I think that I could not make it 220 miles roundtrip from Price to Moab and back again and

            2) as far as I know, there is nowhere to fill up in Moab.

            Did you find any solution for Moab? If you have a home solution, I will ask you a bold question: would you consider letting me fill up there for a fee?

              Green river or Moab needs a station. It just makes sense. Travel to Denver and Albuquerque would be much easier (for those of us with long range) with far fewer miles.

                  I realize this is a really old thread, but any update on any CNG fueling options in Moab? I'm headed down this week in my '08 Civic GX; hoping to be able to do a round trip from Price to Moab on 1 tank... but if there were a fueling option in Moab that would certainly ease my nerves for the trip back to Price.

                    Questar has a private station in Moab, perhaps they could assist if you call ahead. You might also send a private message to our member lindy ottinger who posted above you to see how Lindy is getting fuel down there (click on the name then follow the menus). I am also trying to get some folks together to put in a little refueling station:

                    I'm going to move this thread over to the Utah forum as it is Utah specific.
