how's the mileage compare to gas? Hell, if it's 50%, sounds like it would still be worth it.

I think this might suffice as an answer.

I have not ever run a CNG car but I will look into it if this is true.

Sounds a lot like veg...

“The same as I would with gasoline {diesel}, it’s just cheaper to fill up. And cleaner burning, too.”

Thanks, will be doing some more reading, $1.39 GGE is sweet

I'd like to convert my wife's 2012 E350 12 passenger gas burner to CNG. But from what I've been seeing online, the tanks are very expensive. Especially for the van since they have to fit underneath. Disappointing.
