Propane vs CNG
Mon, 04/16/12 7:11 PM
I have my cash finally to start buying a truck to build out. I am putting together all of my costs. One thing I am trying to decide on is LP vs CNG. LP tanks are WAAAYYYY cheaper than a CNG tank, but if I go with LP most likely I will end up having to convert all of the equipment to run on propane. It looks like the costs will come near even between the two. My question is: Does anyone here have any experience using CNG on a food truck ? Everyone's thoughts on the subject even if you don't have experience with it is also welcome. The other thing I am thinking is that CNG would be nice if I can eventually convert the engine to run on CNG. A company here in town is currently installing a CNG pump with 24 hour card access for self service so I know it will be available locally.
Thanks in advance for your input.
