CNG in Virginia?

Anyone know of a place to fill or swap CNG bottles near Norfolk or anywhere in the Hampton Roads area? I have found bits and pieces of info on the forums that say there is a place in Norfolk, but so far I have not found an accurate or reliable phone number, address, email, etc.

Any first hand and recent knowledge would be great!

Re: CNG in Virginia?

I actually wouldn't be posting on here if the answer were that easy to find on Google. I had already called the phone # for the Norfolk location listed on that website and they didn't even understand the concept of filling a CNG bottle or swap out. All they do at those locations are fill vehicles. I would imagine and hope that most people who post questions here have already tried Google.

Thanks though. I think I got what I need from another forum.

There are adapters out there, or you can build your own to fill the tanks at a filling station. Several Videos on You Tube. I like the version with the bleed valve on the adapter.

Tanks need to be pressure tested I believe every 5 years? Keep an eye on the pressure limitations on the tank vs the 3000 psi filling stations.

I swap mine out, at my marina, and I don't cook alot on the boat. ( other than make coffee) or use the grill.
So my tanks (2) last quite a while.

Good Luck!
