Natural Gas Vehicles

Converting your vehicle to run on natural gas

If you have an existing vehicle that you would like to convert to natural gas, a certified conversion shop can do this for you. The after market conversion leaves the existing gasoline system intact and adds the natural gas package to the vehicle. Enjoy the benefits of natural gas, while extending the range of the vehicle, by allowing you to switch between the two fuels.

The installation of a natural gas system includes a cylinder that is mounted underneath, in the back of the truck or in the trunk of a car. One 70-litre cylinder equals 18 litres of gasoline and weighs approximately 160 pounds.
