CNG Canister search - Great Lakes

Hi all-

Well, my hunt for a person near Cleveland to fill my CNG tank is finally over. There is a company in Coshocton, OH (not quite 2 hour drive) called CNG Auto that will do it for only $30

I would, however, like to have a asecond tank. Ideally I'd get the second tank before driving down there.

If anyone has a used tank or knows where to buy useed CNG canisters please drop a line.

Thanks!

The guy that refillls the tanks doesn't also sell them? That would be strange if he didn't. I'd try him first. The guy I use in Boothbay Harbor ME doesn't actually fill the tank while you wait. It's not like bringing in your propane tank to a gas station to be refiled. You bring in your empty and just swap it for a full one. More like what they do at Home Depot or Lowes with propane, just swap them out.

Two hours away, that is a RPITA.

Nope. The only stations are primarily geared toward automotive use inland. No tank sales.

The other option is (long term) to convert to LPG. But I am crossing my fingers that with the slow increase in CNG autos the access issue might improve over time.

If you make it up to Grand Rapids Mi, I have one I would sell for $40. It's also pretty much full. I had it refilled last spring, but only used it a few quick times over the season.

I went to LPG
