CNG conversion - any experience?

Postby masing » Tue, 29 Jun 2010 12:27 pm

Hi all,
I am currently considering to convert my car to CNG-bifuel. Is there anyone who has any experience with that issue in Singapore and therefore can give me any advice?
Thanks for your help!

I have seen one car in my neighborhood with a 'powered by CNG' sticker on it.

Some number of taxis are now CNG powered. The higher cost is offset with tax relief from the gahmen.

The CNG website is: http://www.cng.com.sg/

Our field director has a Ravi that has been CNG converted. Handy as we now have a CNG station just up the street here in Toh Guan Road/Toh Tuck Road. The MD has a hybrid Lexus SUV but that's not quite the same thing.

In fact, I think there is a conversion business opposite our building but I won't swear to it, although I often see them loading new/late model vehicles on flatbed transporters and all leave with the green CNG stickers on them.

ok, thank you for that information but actually I hoped that there is any member who owns a converted car and therefore can give me any helpful advice for my own conversion...

Hi,

I actually drive a BM 5 series & wanted to convert to a CNG too as i wanted to do my part to save the environment. However, fixing up the CNG engine cost quite a few thosands + an 80 kg burden on your car. Which uses up your fuel even faster. 80 kg is probably heavier than fake rims, in the end, i didnt do it. It's too troublesome, oh yea. it also takes up half of your booth space behind. & i need to delivery some stuffs too from time to time.

Hope this helps. (:
