Hello Carlos,

Did you get your lancer converted to CNG yet? Even Im thinking of converting my '98 lancer.

Did you get it done at suman motors?

Anku - How was your experience with suman? Are they really as professional as they claim? and how much did you pay for your conversion.

Thanks alot,

Yuvi
