CNG refil adapter + ??'s

Ok found the adapter parts list and I will check the validity of the to"to fill station" part monday.

Here is the linky.... CNG Refill Adapter - C34

The nearest fill station for me in Bowie MD is Gaithersburg but with my two tanks @ $78 each @ Jabins in annapolis and a CNG stove and Force 10 cozy cabin heater I can eat the juice....its a worthwhile trip

my question is who has done what I am doing? Why is it that the tanks from Jabins have 2200psi and the fill station has 3000 and 3600psi pumps? Am I in danger of overloading the tanks or just being shorted by the exchange place......

Thank all


I love to sail, coming from a Swordboat capt's loin one would think I'd of caught the bug long before now! Oh well, this ones for you Bisque...(My Father may he RIP)

Now If I could only stay away from working on the damn things I could sail more!

The adp. looks easy to build but my question is : Who will let you fill up? I have the same situation here in San Diego. I have contacted every fill station and even SDG&E and they all say that you can not fill a portable tank.

Re: CNG refil adapter + ??'s

I know it's an old thread, but if you've been going to Gaithersburg, you'll be very happy to learn that the CNG station by BWI is now public (no longer MD State only). It appears to be open 24/7, and takes regular credit cards. SWEET!
