  • Newb in Utah

    I just got a 1995 Dodge Caravan SE CNG 3.3 L V6 with 38000 miles on it. It sat in CA at a Navy base. I have had it for a 2 days now and I am smiling as I drive because I use to spend $160 a month to drive my 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 and now I will Spend about $40 a month. I need to get some new CNG stickers/emblems because the car was Cheaply repainted before it was sold.
    I have access to a vinyl printer and was wondering what size the CNG logo is normally?

      Was watching KSL cars and Craigslist for a CNG or Bifuel car for under $7000. When Tuesday afternoon I went to check and there was a Dodge Caravan that was Factory dedicated CNG. I paid $6000 for it. I dont know about MPG yet I have only had it for about 2 days. Here is some information I have found on the internet (I dont remeber from where...)

      "Chrysler Corp. sold versions of the 1995 Dodge Caravan, Plymouth Voyager, and Caravan cargo minivans that run on compressed natural gas. They are certified as one of the "world's cleanest internal-combustion vehicles" by the state of California, which said the minivans meet its tough standard for ultra-low-emission vehicles (ULEVs). The vehicles store the equivalent of 8.2 gallons of gasoline in their four underside tanks. The range is 160 to 180 miles, and the extra cost is about $5,800 over the regular vehicle price."

      3.3L CNG V6 ENGINE - $5,860 more then standard
      3300 cc 3.3 liters 6 V engine with 93.0 mm bore and 81.0 mm stroke; Multi-point injection fuel system; Power: 121 kW , 162 HP @ 4800 rpm; , 194 Nm @ 2400 rpm; Performance: Fuel economy; Weights: Heavy duty alternate suspension; Rear wheels; Rear tires

        Ha ha! It sounds like cheap new paint jobs are the order of the day on older NGVs. That's what happened to our 1996 Dodge 1500 truck--one heck of a crappy paint job. So we're also looking for the CNG decal. Will be watching your post to see if you get a response before I do.
