  • Hello From Oklahoma

    I signed up several months ago, but was just in the looking stage then. I've now sold my chains of oppression (the gas-only vehicle) and am shopping for a CNG car as we speak.

    Oklahoma doesn't seem to be a good place to find used CNG vehicles, or at least I've had little success. There's the guy out in Morris, who currently has next to nothing in stock.

    I've been watching the CNGMOTORS site out in Az, and have been beat to the punch on a few vehicles there now... actually just got a deposit refunded from him this morning for a truck we missed.

    And what happened to the prices? Is it just a temporary surge, or are the used CNG vehicles going to keep going up in price? I assume it's a response to the climbing gasoline price.

    Anyway, we're watching a couple of vehicles on eBay right now, and are hoping that we'll soon join the CNG power community.

    OK, enough rambling, thanks for the great site and the great info. If you have any suggestions on other vehicle sources, it would be greatly appreciated... and yes, that includes if you have one of your own for sale. Needs to be a truck, as I live out in the country and econo-cars don't survive on my road very well.

    Welcome from Tulsa! CNG vehicles are hard to find, but be patient you wil get one, even at a good price to boot. I purchased mine on ebay but be careful and make sure it is functioning 100% before you complete the sale and stay from those that haven't tested them. Good luck!

      CNG vehicles are hard to find, but you can check out craigslist. There was a decent Ford Contour bi fuel on there for 3k. It had 78,000 miles on it. I've been tempted to buy it, but I have too many cars as it is.

      I have purchased all of my vehicles on ebay and I usually have to drive 1000 miles to get them, but it's well worth it. The last vehicle I bought was a few weeks ago and it's a 97 Ford Extended van with huge tanks. I was able to put I think 18 gallons in it. I paid $1600.00 for it and it only has 40,000 miles on it. Even has a hitch. I hope to sell it for about $7,500 to someone in the service industry in Oklahoma.

      I would def. buy from ebay as it will be cheaper. If you buy from a dealer you will pay a lot more. You need to look in cities on craigslist where they only have one pump or even no pumps. You will have to haul it or have it delivered but these are the best places. Most people don't understand why people like cng.
