  • It's thetonka

    Hi from SoCal!

    Found this site while doing some research on NGV conversion potentials. With the price of gas and all the political and environmental issues that are going on I have been looking at alternatives. I am currently working on veggy oil system on my '01 F350 tow rig. I don't plan on anything for my motorcycle commuter since it already gets great mileage. The next step is looking at something for the wife. She currently is driving a Grand Cherokee. We have talk that her next vehicle may be a hybrid, but I have been leaning towards something else. Since she doesn't drive much except to get the kid to school her range needs are less than 200 miles on a tank. I know a few places where I can get a nice older SUV for cheap. So I have been looking into what it would take to build an older SUV, probably pre-smog, and building it as a dedicated NGV from scratch.

    I have yet to find any really good information on conversion kits for anything other than newer cars, and only a few. So I thought I would register and look around to see what I can find here.
