Received the letter yesterday. Looks like we have to set aside some time for this.. timing a bit tight as everything must be done by 31 july, not sure if it's easy to get appointment slots.

1) Go to C&C to confirm can disable

2) Pay a visit to LTA to submit documents

3) Go to C&C to disable system

4) Send for another inspection (notice explicitly states we have to pay again for this :mad:)

Any idea what are the associated costs at each step? Wondering what do they mean by disable and how much it costs.. how come they couldn't do so 2 months back?

*If you had modded your NGT system before, you have to revert it back to original condition before C&C confirm your car can be convert from NGT to normal car.

2) Pay a visit to LTA to submit documents

*Pay admin fee of $21 + whatever green rebate to be refund back to LTA.

3) Go to C&C to disable system

*Release of CNG from tanks (not sure how much but last time some bro here mentioned it is about $500+)

*Install LTA Serial-Numbered SEAL (look like some metal cable-tie, see picture attached)

*C&C will update details into LTA system.

4) Send for another inspection (notice explicitly states we have to pay again for this :mad:)

*Send for VITAS (aka VICOM) inspection (should be same as Weekend car SEAL inspection $16.00??? )

*Not sure if owner can sent for inspection our own (C&C can do it but will incurred extra labour charges?)

Above is based on my assumption as there are so few NGT on the road now.

Anyone knows or converted already please share your info. Thanks.

Registered letter received, similarly like bro ayambrand, seems pretty tight duration to exercise all these points.

Fact finding on timing, procedure and costing now. Not sure if 31 July completion is realistic or not.

All NGT owner. Please do update. Thanks.

*attached LTA's letter on procedures FYI.

Downtime is 2-3 days @ Alexandra [to put on a seal.... not system removal !]

2nd update :

LTA has blocked all NGT car sales/transfer until the system is disable/enable + Top-up of Green Vehicle Rebate or Re-Inspection PASS. (Bxxtxxd !)

3rd update :

....... do check the Green Vehicle Rebate top-up online...... mine amounting to some $3.4K !

Conclusion

Its all about $!!

Bro,

Last time I think some of us already disable and shutdown the system at C&C paying a couple of hundreds dollars.

Logically, C&C will no need to shut it down (2nd time) again, right ?

So that means, we just have to go and put the LTA SEAL...and VICOM inspection....

Bro iMac, logically it should be what you explained but in actual it seems not like that. Not sure why 2-3 days is needed at C&C.

Anyway, appt is being made for next week. Let's see.

--------------

meantime, hope someone has a better solution or recommendations for external source !

It could be a very small/minor leak.

Question is, how much to get it repair? and will you be using CNG now since the price is almost same as petrol?

Once the current fleet of CNG taxi run-out-of-service in 2 years time...will there still be CNG refill station? 

 

Actually, the gas leak detector is quite cheap..you can get one for $30 at ebay. It can also be use for checking cooking stove at home.:lol:

yea, it will be good to get one and find the leak myself. see can order the part myself or not. Cycle say SG dont have parts... need to order from Germany. estimate 10k to fix everything. mad?!

$10k is not worth to repair liow.

Actually, most parts are not very expensive....It is the labour charges at c&c that jack up the cost.

4 years back, C&C also say must import from Germany the parts. Here in Singapore they dont have.

*lastly i think the nearest point is Thailand as i saw they also have w211 NGT there running around.

Unless the green rebate need to payback is greater then the repair cost...Then it is worth to repair the CNG system...Or else..It is cheaper to shut it down once and for all...

*Bro, you wanna organise a NGT workshop trip to Hatyai.

There is authorized MB services in Hat Yai :
Sa-nguan Wattana Enterprise
850 Petkasem Road
Hat Yai, Songkla 90110
Tel. +66 74 365 650

After repair, can test out if 1 full tank of petrol+CNG can cover the 900km journey back to Sg...hahaha...
