Greetings, I start this thread to discuss the pro & cons of using compressed natural gas (CNG). I've noticed more and more CNG filling stations here in the metro area of Minneapolis, MN. So the curiosity begins to learn more about it.

So who here is a user of CNG? What are some pro/cons of being a CNG user? What are some product or kit reccomdations? Complicated to install or seek professional? Performance issues? Will CNG reduce or eliminate regen cycles due to much city driving, I assume this is a true fact since NG is a clean fuel.

I am considering this install on my 2011 f350 6.7L

Any information or feedback on this is greatly appreciated.

Here is a local company you might check with:

Any switch to CNG would just be supplementary to your primary diesel fuel system.

CNG is optimized in an engine of maybe 11:1 compression which is much less than your diesel engine. To switch entirely to CNG would require different pistons, etc..

Unless there is a real price incentive, what is your motivation if you don't mind my asking.
