Re: [DML] Anyone ever convert to CNG?



I think there are "home fill stations" you can buy/build.  I heard prices of $2000 to do it.  Considering you would have LESS power on CNG, and have to fill up more often, and (DeLorean specific) be giving up lots of space for tanks, I don't think it is practical.  It would take a long time to recoup the expenses, unless you use the DMC as a daily driver.  Long trips would require proper planning for CNG fillup.
