Hey iMac.  

Done that. Over the phone countless of times as well as met mr kang of LTA personally on 2 occassions. Like Blue211 said the 2 fellas keep pushing the responsibilities to the other party and none of them wants to make a stand. Frustrating and exasperated!

I followed up on Propel.  They dont have the size of tank that i am looking for.

Hi Nita , I don't understand why Propel says they have the Big tanks , I thought that W211 all have the same tanks ?

Propel guy says High Speed Motor Harjinder Singh went to find them too .

Hi Blue

Yes.  They have the big tanks.  But they dont have the smaller ones that sits in where we would normally have the spare tyre.

Yes. Harjinder Singh was there with us actually.

Hi Blue

Manjit is still looking for the smaller tanks and brackets. The situation does not look that promising.

How about your end? Any luck?

No luck here too . Tried to ask LTA for alternative but no go. Saw a Munich Alpina selling a 06 ngt.... can high speed motors talk to them and borrow the full set of tanks for us to do a disable of the system. Or anyone in this forum ?

When I purchased my NGT 2 years ago, I had the intention to shutdown and remove the system.

I have approached C&C, but they refused to do it as they also not sure if the vehicle will still function properly if the tanks were removed.

I then approach every LTA Authorised CNG workshop in Sg to check if the they able to remove the tanks.

Sadly, no one dare to do it as they had the same worry. And so I shelved the whole idea.

But now, it has been PROVEN by Blue211 and Nita that with the tanks removed, there are no bad effect on the car.

I wonder if the workshop which help Blue211 and Nita removed their tanks are authorised by LTA.

Will it help to get the workshop to produce a invoice to convince LTA the tanks were indeed safely removed?

The workshop that remove the parts..... had discard all the parts ?

Those with tanks removed, guess the best is to wait/search for an similar car which are due to scrap and buy the the require parts.

Hey iMac.  

Perhaps it was a blessing that you did not remove the tanks then. 

It is worth a shot..your suggestion to see if LTA can accept the invoice from the workshop that had removed my tanks.

Will call LTA tomorrow.

And yes iMac. SDA and C&C checked my car. Both parties gave him a clean 'bill of health'! Perfecto... except that it was missing the tanks. Haha

Yes tanWill. They probably have pocketed the monies made from the sale to desperate drivers like myself. Haha.

Has anyone completed what LTA wanted? Because I haven't done anything yet LOL.

 

It will be great to remove the tanks if LTA wants us to disable the NGT system. No point carrying useless things around

Remember to update us what is LTA opinion. If 3rd Party CNG Workshop able to safely remove the system. Will they recognize and accept our request for  conversion ?

My system was previously disable but due to the forceful situation........ no choice had to enable it and to fill up the CNG tanks. Its working normally ; with exception when the fuel level is below 1/2 tank the engine will misfire and shut off the CNG. Had went for a re-inspection and now they are happy.

Now, i had to fill-up my petrol tank once its at 1/2 to avoid the misfire and also use up the CNG as quickly as possible.

For me its over, but its been a stressful one !

I passed my inspection too! I bought a combustible gas detector to check my vehicle. End up it was my gas tank leaking if I pump full tank. Changed the seal. Checked with my detector ok. When for inspection also passed. 

 

My device looks more professional than their detector lor.

Bro, which seal is that and how much to replace the spoilt seal?

Sorry, I made a typo. It was my PETROL tank leaking. They replaced some rubber seal then ok already. Before that, I always get a funny burn smell, the mechanic told me its the petrol overflow out and contact with the hot car parts. 

If my engine is cold and I pump a full tank of petrol, i can see the petrol drip onto the floor.

 

If anyone need the detector I can pass to you, or can come my place and test it out

Glad to know both you and tanwill had your problems solved.

For myself, look like no more choice but to sent in my car to C&C to do the conversion....:hot:

Hey iMac

I spoke to mr brown of c&c. Very receptive guy. Genuinely wants to help. So he spoke to LTA today and was told that my merc must be certified safe as per MANUFACTURING standards. What the fish! If only LTA can accept that my merc is safe as is.. then all is jolly.

In other words c&c's hands are tied. I need to fix all the tanks, all the pipings and whatever valves - fill up the ngt tanks with gas, make sure there are no leaks and everything is running as per MANUFACTURING specs, then pay additional $1000+ for some fancy cable tie to disable the ngt system, lug around with 4 non functional tanks for the rest of 4 years -- then only LTA will allow me to renew my roadtax. Fish! Fish! Fish!

Whatever you do iMac... do not remove your tanks. LTA will insist that our car remain as in their ORIGINAL MANUFACTURED condition. We cannot do ANY retrofitting works... even changing our rim size is a BIG NO NO!

There must be another solution! Nita, looks like you may have to pay a visit to LTA itself.
