CNG Refill Adapter
[Ed. note: This gadget was submitted by several
people at nearly the same time. I'm taking the best of each submission
to create a single project page.]
My friend and I (both C34 owners) figured out how to fill CNG tanks about 5
or 6 years ago. We have been using it ever since. The most we
have ever paid to fill a tank is $1.10 and it only takes a few seconds!
I could fax you the plans for the adapter we made. You will need
access to a machining (lathe) service in order to make your own. The
main problem in "mating" your boat tank to a CNG powered powered vehicle
refueling system is this: our boat tank is build to "stationary gas
standards" (like welding tanks) which uses pipe threaded connections.
Vehicles have been built to "mobile gas standards" which use SAE o'ring
straight threaded connections. As with any flammable, there is some
danger involved, so great caution is required when filling tanks.
