Burmac CNG sells and installs CNG systems in vehicles both gasoline and diesel units. The tanks are designed to hold 2.25 times the working pressure which is 3000psi. Unfortunately not all the station dispense gas at 3000psi. NGC is however upgrading the station infrastructure so that soon we will be able to get the 3000psi at the pump!

What's the average cost to install a system now? Thinking about the possibility of installing one.
Any idea how long it takes to fill up as well?

So I was doing my research on CNG recently myself, Dumore had a both at southex in GulfCity. They said that the kit is avg 12k installed, If u buy a new vehicle from Ansa they install for 5000. Also there are more 2 stations coming on stream in Couva area soon ... Good news!!

You technically have a bomb in your trunk... Apparently the regulation in other countries is for all passengers to exit the vehicle while it is being filled with CNG.

So the risk is only while being filled?

I am not sure about that being the only risk... But that was the most recent CNG explosion that I have seen.

And did the driver or whoever is filling it do something wrong like overfilling it?

So they say. But interestingly enough no where else in the world will you find a
Honda City manufactured with CNG to buy.

What size of tank did you install and what kind of range would you get in a vehicle like a Tucson?

How much trunk space remains after the install? I find those CUVs don't really have all that much cargo space despite the perception of it being a larger vehicle.

Good day all,
Want to convert a Voxy with 3ZR-FAE engine to CNG.
I am told that direct injection engines cannot be converted.
Not absolutely sure if this engine is direct injection but
anyone knows if this vehicle can be converted?

Are CNG vehicles coming RORO now? or one has to look for someone selling their Honda City CNG model?

Also how much does it cost to do a full CNG conversion that includes tank etc?

Never seen or heard of CNG coming with RORO. A conversion with a petrol vehicle is between 10k - 12k (depends on who doing the conversion). Not sure what the cost is for diesel vehicles. Usually takes 3 business days to convert.

In the USA there was the Civic GX. I am not sure if they are continuing that natural gas model with the latest Civic. I am also not sure if they ever produced a RHD Civic GX.
