CNG system

I'm considering buying this kit for my truck. It looks promising. Anyone here use this product?

The benifit seems great, but diesel is hard enough to find on some stretches of interstate

The beauty of this system is that you can switch between diesel only or diesel/CNG combination. This isn't a complete switch over to CNG. It's a dual fuel setup. Running out of CNG wouldn't be an issue as you'd just continue on running on diesel fuel.

But how long of running on Cng would it take to return your investment? Like I said it sounds great, but I'm not sure it would sustain itself to return my investment especially after I would have added other performance parts, it would be good for road trips or the commute however, what kind of economy would it behold? The cost per gallon is nice

The site and their youtube videos say 40-60 mpg depending driving conditions.

I'm getting 14 mpg with straight diesel, but hmm. If I can get even close to 30 I'd be a happy camper, don't know if this can be adapted for a 6.0l. All their Vids show older makes and models.

Neat idea, but how does it work when hauling a load? Does it say on there how much CNG you actually burn per mile? I didn't see where they said it...maybe I missed it?? Looks like they had a massively large tank in the bed of the truck. Who cares if you're getting 60 MPG with diesel if you're only getting 2 MPG on the CNG.

And FWIW, the closest CNG station to me (according to the map they link to) is a little over an hour away from me, and the cost per gallon is listed at $2.35. I just paid $3.71 for diesel today...

Sounds like a great idea but apparently the government has gotten their hands on the tax machine here in Colorado. There are 2 stations in Colorado Springs both on the military base one is priced at $2.99 and the other is $4.50. Diesel here is running at $3.79. The math doesn't seem to work out. Now I can see in the surrounding states the prices are below $2. The math doesn't seem to work out so well out here.
