The UK thing isn't the point. They're there. Sascha had one

Yes, there are drawbacks, like limited fueling points, some power loss, etc. There are good points as well, Like being able to buy domestic fuel, cheaper fill-ups with comparable mileage ranges, and if I need to, I'll be able to fill at a pipeline station if the situation becomes dire.

I'm not building a crawler-buggy. I'm going for a more expedition/overland oriented vehicle.

For me, the bottom line is that IF in my research I find that the claims are true, I will probably have the conversion done so that I can run on both fuel types. (not LP) That way I can have the best of both worlds. at the same time, I'm also looking at installing some type of long-range gasoline fuel tank. So I'm looking at every side of the fuel issue as I see it.

In looking into the conversion, I've found a company in Lafeyette, LA that is an aithorized installer for one brand of CNG conversion system. They did all of Shreveports busses and most of their city maint. vehicles...

I wonder what kind of pump does it take to fill up with? Is this a pump you can buy and fill up at home.

Yes there is a pump that you can buy to fill up at home using the gas service you already have and compressing it. It isn't cheap though. If I remember correctly it was about $7500 just for the compressor system. Not including the filtration and other necessities. Plus that kind of compression would need professional periodic maintenance that would likely get pricey quick.

It would be an idea though, if there were neighbors with cng who would split the costs...
