How much time? I have almost 200,000 miles using propane on the same engine with zero bad issues. The bottom line is if you use common sense and don't overfeed either propane or CNG to your engine it will last a long time.

Re: CNG ??????

Biggest 'problem' is finding a source to fill your CNG tank. Every corner sells/fills LPG tanks, but good luck find a CNG refiller.
You can get a 'station' for your garage if you have Natural gas at home, but those are $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

On second thought, go buy one. The more they sell, the cheaper they'll get then maybe I'll be able to afford one.
