    Jim,
    I have a myriad of questions, however I’ll try to keep this short.
    What I am looking for, is a company that can A) Supply me with CNG kits and B) Give me timely support if/when needed.

    The short version of my story is that I plan to do this as a business, and am now putting all my ducks in a row.
    I am a qualified mechanic, for 40 yrs. and coming out of retirement to do this, because I see it as a worthy venture. Money is important mostly to the extent that it has to support itself. I do not plan on doing the future conversions myself, as I am planning to do so at present. But I want to train employees for the job etc.

    Can you help or guide me to someone who may assist me?

        Hi Larry,
        I’m from Trinidad an i imported a V8 Titan here but i’m having problems installing CNG in the Vehicle since no one seems to know how to do it and the Gas price is so expensive here. Is there any advice that you can give to me to help me install it???

        thank you

        There is an install manual on my Blog, what kind of system did you want?

    Hi Jim,

    I am student and I am doing some research on CNG for heavy duty farm equipement. I am in California and it seems to be a lot of regulations?

    Is it possible to convert a Deisel Farm Tractor to CNG? Drawbacks? Positives?

    Thanks!

    What makes you think there would be a problem?

    From my article CNG Conversions Explained:
    In the beginning the EPA wanted Cleaner Air (The Clean Air Act)(1). They targeted some cities that did not meet their “standards”(2) and asked them to clean up their air. With the power of the Clean Air Act the EPA was now in a position to offer a solution. They then mandated that some“Covered Fleets”(3) should “convert” a certain percentage(4) of their vehicles to AFV (Alternative Fuel Vehicles) thus helping the air quality. They offered to “Certify” CNG conversions(5) through a process already in place which was being used by new vehicle manufacturers. This would be good for the Fleets, if their conversions were EPA approved this would make them eligible for Federal and State rebates(6) and Incentives.

    Jim,
    Keep up the good work; I get really pissed at the self-serving jerks on that other site. Just curious which kits you sell and approx cost w/o tanks. I have seen a few Galileo kits available on ebay. I do have a Ford compuvalve system available but not particularly enamored with them. I also have a wide band analyzer and a programmable chip for the Ford products,

    Im seriously thinking of converting an Expedition or TownCar,, and possibly a tricked out (turbocharged) Mustang to go with a pair of bifuel F150’s daily beaters Ive driven for 3 years now. Ive become a real fan of cng!

    Jim,
    I was told that you provided some sort of training in the CNG area. Is this a fact. Please let me know and give me some further contact information.
    Thanks.

    last month we spoke on the phone about converting a Prius Hybrid. My wife does not like the Prius, (nor did my 1st wife for that matter). After some shopping around she has agreed to a Highlander Hybrid. Originally you were concerned with the space a tank would occupy in the Prius so I’m guessing the Highlander SUV would be better for the conversion. Hybrid conversions have been done overseas like in the UK and I’m hoping to do it here. In our area we are lucky to have the Haynesville Shale production and CNG quick fill stations. Also, I’ll be using a slow fill in our home. We haven’t bought the Highlander yet but it will probably be a 2008 or 2009. An estimate is appreciated. Please include tank options. I really admire how you run your business. Thank you
