Yes this post is old, and I have not been on this site for likely a year or more. dont know what lead me to check this site but anyway.... I has now been 4 years since I converted to duel fuel diesel/CNG. Its been great. running at about 65% cng. one kicker here in Michigan is that the public stations up the price in Feb2012 from $1.95 to $2.65 per GGE. Reason given by DTE is that the Gov't tax break expired. still it is better than $4.00 per gallon diesel. worked from home a lot since 2008 but driving a lot more now. I get about 800 miles + to a 26 gallon tank of diesel. As Marc indicates, no magic here. It is CNG replacing Diesel, and it is cost per mile savings, not MPG savings. The extra HP and Tork, and no turbo lag are a plus. Saved almost $3000 in fuel cost since 2008. I now have 156,000 on my '01.

Marc can quote you on the kit cost. He and I did the install though I installed the tank myself. Biggest cost is the tank. I decided to by a new type 4 cng tank (21 gallon) as I am a distributor for Lincoln Composits. Yea it is high dollar, but good until 2024. Have seen tanks on Ebay for $900.

More information can be found at "MrTruck.com" if you do a search on CNG. There is a write-up there that has pictures of how I installed this system on my truck.

Will this system work well on a 1994 6.5? I'm not after the horse power, just the savings. I have an HX35w now
