Default EcoBoost CNG Conversion

Has anyone heard of an EcoBoost converted to use CNG?

I was looking for this originally when I got mine. At that time, no one had a kit so far. I gave up on looking, if you find one though, I would be interested to know about it.

Default EcoBoost CNG Conversion

The story I get is that "Not enough demand for a vendor to spend the money to develope the software for the EcoBoost. The would have to wite code for the engine and the trubochargers.

Check out Eco Fuel Systems. I'm running their kit on my Eco and love the cost savings. I pay 10 cents per liter when I fill up at home, and 70 cents at a local filling station! I get about the same mileage per liter. Power is not a problem either, as the Eco has plenty to spare.

No power numbers as I have not had it on a dyno. Don't need to. It still feels as strong. Mileage is around 14 liters/100 kms - indicated on board.
So far all is well at 42000 kms (converted at 15000).

I would like to hear more. What did the conversion cost and how much was the fueling station at your House?

skc72,

Check out these guys. They supplied the kit that is on my truck. Look for a conversion center close to you. The laws may be different as I am in Canada and you are in USA (EPA and such). Kits here don't have to be emission certified but they do have to meet safety standards. My province doesn't require emission tests on new vehicles until they are 7 years old. And then it can be tested on either CNG or gasoline.
Prices are going vary depending on what tanks you go with, local laws, federal laws, installation charges, kit prices etc. I went with a used, recertified tank and traded in my old tank from my 2000 Dodge Dakota.
