            i bought a cng truck, 97 expedition with two tanks from a nyc auction and cant get it to work. I checked the 1/4 turn off, I opened and closed tanks, I tried filling it up but it wouldnt accept any fuel. It has a gauge inside that lights up and appears to have cng in tanks. I was thinking they might have pulled a fuse or something when I bought it for safety reasons, but I cant figure out where it would be. The fuse under dashboard is working.. Any suggestions would be great, thanks

                      The certification is from Canadian Standards Association America (CSA- America). It is the one general CNG cylinder Inspector certification in the world that I know of. If Nick Wagnor is still doing the same thing, it is one he is using, along with the guys in Calif. The only other ones I know of are the factory sponsored class specifically for their own product.

                      Hope this info helps

                        I own gas fields in upstate NY and am considering developing an onsite vehicle compressor pumping station. I imagine I would be about the first to tap directly from well to compressors up here if I do this. Can you tell me what is bottom line on the safety aspect of gas cylinders within vehicles.

                            Sounds good, however, not being an pipeline person, I believe that there is some filtering that has to be done before the gas can be put into the compressor and vehicle -- the sweeting process. Also this gas would not have the odorant. mercaptian, so it would be unodorized CNG. There is a diamond that says "unodorized CNG" that some of the transit agencies use when they fuel with L/CNG (compressed natural gas from LNG). It might be nice to warn the emergency responders that they can't smell the CNG.

                              By "bottom line" are you speaking of pressure test?.......usually they have to be certified for double the operating pressure of 3000 psi, so 6000 psi. There are other considerations regarding the tanks and their mounting. The tanks are usually steal with a fiberglass rapping. The mounting should not allow for any flexing of the tanks. (truck bed, or trunk) Under vehicle mounting has been done with disasterous results. GM experienced fatigue on the cylinders mounted legthwise in their pickup trucks which resulted in a recall. The frame flexing caused the tanks structure to become unstable resulting in failure.
