Here is the EPA's website on alternative fuel conversions. All the information you need is there. Happy reading.
About a 1/4 down the page there is a link to Light Duty Vehicle Outside Useful Life Notification Package.

Thats because there is an abundance of Natural gas.. They were drilling and/or Hydrofracking here in the northeast so much that all of sudden it came to a halt mainly because they were finding more than they could sell. Also there are a lot of people against the hydrofracking and encouraging towns to put moritoriums on it until more information on its safety/health hazards are known. I was watching a government channel the other day and they anticipate that natural gas usage will increase 50% in the US by the year 2030. only 16 years away.. Looks like I wont have a problem finding work for the rest of my working days.. Ive been working in the natural gas industry for 15 years and a few years before that actually worked on a natural gas drilling rig for a couple years. Theres a lot of deteriorating pipelines out there that are climbing 100+ years old and if they are not replaced bad things happen.. We usually see on the news a good handfull of explosions every year due to the infrastructure falling apart. I have even replaced some of the plastic gas lines that were buried in the early 80's that are failing due to the oxidation of the plastic and are getting brittle. Im actually looking at getting some training to become a pipeline inspector when my body doesnt allow me to do the work im doing now. I think eventually there will be a call for it as soon as the government clamps down on some of the gas companies that have deteriorating systems.

As supply increases, so will demand.
Local power utility here where I am, is going to break ground soon for a new NG power generation station to replace an existing converted coal station.
A local municipal city wanted to convert some of their fleet to CNG, but they seem to be at odds with their insurance carrier as they won't permit the city to construct/operate their own CNG refueling station.
I'm not opposed to CNG as a fuel option, I hope its popularity lasts longer than LPG did for on road use.2010 Silverado LT 1500 5.3L 4X4
