Super prices are already at market value and premium has an additional tax on it... The only way it going by 15% is if world prices per barrel of oil also go up. Diesel is the only fuel that is really being subsidized currently

sorry to hear about your problems, could you also check your coilpacks to make sure they are delivering proper flow of current to plugs, i posted some contact info of private installers who may be able to help you.


these are all the contacts I have

Can anyone say if and / or how the Petrotrin strike may affect the availability of CNG nationwide?

This I know and was of the opinion that the strike won't affect CNG supply.
But then I saw a newspaper article saying that CNG will be affected as
well hence the reason I asked. Also wasn't sure if NGC is under OWTU.

just read all 8 pages of this thread to come up to speed with the CNG tech. Good stuff in here guys.

long time gasoline and diesel vehicle owner but CNG is new to me

I'm currently looking for a new gas vehicle for the family and considering going CNG.
I'm considering a retrofit in a Fielder 141 as we need a wagon vehicle, being a Mitsubishi whore, a CY Lancer retrofit is also an option

I believe the Lancers take the retrofit well as the NGC fleet of Lancers were all retrofitted and they were not very problematic
prefer the wagon tho as there would be less space loss vs the tank in a car trunk

wife's friend has a Honda City CNG and she likes it, so this is an option, but a last resort as we really don't wanna put out $180k on a car, I rather buy a roro or local used wagon and do a retrofit at under $100k

the CNG stations were not something I ever paid much attention to, since I never had it, but reading through all the previous pages and seeing how often and how long the stations are down makes me second guess this option.

If I spend 10-12K on a retrofit and cant get a reliable supply of CNG, then its a bad investment to me, since we would be using the CNG as the primary fuel and fill gas only for the bare minimum

Also, I saw in the newly re-launched CNG station NP carousel at Mon Repos a sign saying NO SELF SERVICE at the CNG pumps . . . so added inconvenience of having to wait on the service staff to fill up. I understand the safety aspects of why they doing that, but its a setback and inconvenience for me as I pump my own diesel and gas at that station as my usual filling spot

present and past govts pushing the CNG use and the public are adopting it slowly, but there isn't any guarantee that they will in the future, but gas gonna still be there and like it or not the subsidy is being slowly removed, so prices going up regardless of the govt in power

so doing a lil maths on this

presently the gas fuel bill is ~ $500\month

that works out to be ~$120 per week for ~ 400km
this is $6000\year

using a CNG Honda City fuel figures,
$15 to fill a 70L tank that delivers ~200km, it would need 2 fills per week to cover the same 400km distance

this works out to a CNG fuel bill of $120\month or $1440\year
thus saving $380\month

with a CNG installation bill of $10,000 the kit would pay back for itself in 26 months (rounded from 26.3 months)

Has anyone used the millennium CNG kit from eBay.
If so who did the install?
How is it working?
Reason for asking is I'm considering a used CNG kit which is $5000- $5500 installed. But the eBay kits is only $350-$400 us and are the newer ones.

At least that is what I was told by a tech at the TIC trade show regarding the lancer with the CNG system fitted that they had on display.
It also might be similar in cost to servicing a normal fuel system.

where sells the cng tanks, and what pressure is it designed to hold? or rather, what pressure do they refill to at the refill stations?
