Did you know it is not necessary to buy new vehicles to take advantage of the new lower cost and more environmentally friendly alternative fuels? In fact it is more environmentally conscious to convert rather than replace.
The rising cost of gasoline and diesel fuel is prompting many people to investigate options to retrofit (“convert”) their car or pick-up truck to run either (1) solely on natural gas, which is referred to as “dedicated” or (2) to run on gasoline OR natural gas, which EPA refers to as “dual-fuel” although the worldwide accepted nomenclature for such vehicles is “bi-fuel.” All systems and system installers must be certified to engage in CNG retrofits. EPA’s current guidance on the use of aftermarket conversion systems is available here: http://www.epa.gov/OMS/cert/dearmfr/cisd0602.pdf.
To prevent safety and emission non-compliance, anyone who manufacturers, installs or sells a non-certified system runs the risk of being found guilty of tampering and could face serous fines. The EPA certification requirements apply to all alternative fuel vehicle retrofit systems including natural gas, propane, methanol, ethanol and/or hydrogen retrofit systems.
