I am just concerned when i switch back to gas will my performance be affected?
I notice you said "use to be " so now as u not there any more how do you rate the kit supplied by said company.
Also is there any alternative Reliable installers who install cng with rated tanks etc.
What major faults/complaints did you guys have with the cng system installed in the vehicle.


The kit installed by ACL has an air regulator, basically it is a throttle butterfly that is fitted on the air intake to reduce the amount of air going into the engine when it is running on CNG. When the vehicle is on Gasoline this valve will be fully open to allow more air in.

Check your cng service history
Check your spark plugs
Clean your injectors and throttle body.

The injector and throttle body clean solved the stalling issue at speed bump ,traffic light etc

I do alot or highway driving and its about 93 deg C at about 100kmh but when i kick down to run hard it reaches 98 to 100 and the fans comes on worse yet when I'm the East West corridor in traffic its usually about 98
I've cleaned the radiator recently but it did improve by much by the way it a parts place replacement radiator not the original and with all that I don't loose any coolant

Those things just make the water take longer to reach temps for the thermostat and the temperature sender to work and turn on the fan. Obviously once more efficient the fans would work less but the parameters by which the thermostat and the temp signals set by there temperature sender still remain and the the engine will still operate at those temperatures.

The only way around is a lower temp thermostat and reprogram ecu to turn on fans sooner but then to there are other issues associated with making those changes.

At what temperature does the thermostat open to allow cooling water flow?
