Check with the taxiwalls. They use Diesel-CNG on their 138Ds.

Dude,

A Safari engine with 80,000 kms is already on its last legs. Why would you want to run it on CNG? You really arent going to save much and the entire conversion will most probably turn into a disaster. Yes, the engine will overheat once running on CNG.
