LUV'N CNG!!!!

Just turned the 10,000 mile mark today in my 2012 f250 gasser.....Ive filled the unleaded gas tank 3 times! And one of those times is because I forgot to fill the CNG ( compressed natural gas) and ran out.
I cannot beleive the big 3 car companies arent screaming about natural gas cars. Guys, I fill up for around .40 a gallon. Or roughly $8.00 a day and the truck operates all day long.
Not trying to sell these just wanted to share with ya.

I do notice a small drop in power running the cng. But I have a small rocker switch on the dash that I can hit to go back to the unleaded. reeley the drop in power is so small that if the truck didnt have the switch it wouldnt be a issue. Im maxxed out on weight with this truck and I work in the back country so I probably notice it more than say someone would just driving one around town.
