What should a driver do if gas leakage occurs in an NGV-converted car ?

 
In case of NGV leakage, a driver should follow the following instructions:
  1. Switch off the CNG cylinder, open the trunk hood and turn off the cylinder valve at the gas tank
  2. Switch to drive in petrol mode
  3. Drive to the previous conversion workshop to have the car fixed
 
In long term, can an NGV-converted car be run on dedicated natural gas, or should it be occasionally shifted to petrol mode? If a car has to be switched between natural gas and petrol modes, how do we know when it must be switched ?
   
When an NGV-converted car engine is started up, it is powered by petrol. Then it is automatically switched to run on natural gas when engine warms up. While reaching the destination, the driver should switch back to run on petrol mode.

For annual check of NGV kits, what kinds of documents are required? Are they the same requirements all over the country?
 
The required document is a photocopy of vehicle registration certificate which is the same requirement across the country.
 
Where can I get a map of NGV service stations, and which division/department do I contact with?
 
You can get it from NGV Fueling Fleet Card Room, PTT Head Office, F/1
 
Can NGV Fueling be done while it is raining with thunder and lightning?
 
 
Yes, it can be done safely. According to the safety standard regulation, the lightning conductor on top of the building as well as the earth wire at each dispenser, are required to be installed in order to prevent lightning strikes within NGV service station's compound.
In some certain situation, such a fueling service is not allowed because of heavy rain. That is why the computerized POS machine gets wet and becomes out of order. Therefore, NGV fueling service is not available for the meantime.
Currently, the computerized POS machines with plastic weatherproof guard have been installed one after another in PTT NGV service stations, with regard to the larger number of NGV vehicles queuing up to be fueled in each NGV service station.
 
Why does low-pressure NGV occur in some certain NGV service stations ?
 


Low-pressure NGV results from the load over capacity of all dispensers for the meantime that leads to lower filling pressure of gas feeding and fewer vehicles queuing up. Normally, the service station staff opts to temporarily stop operating service of a few dispensers to raise the pressure level. Such a problem may occasionally occur in some certain NGV Daughter service stations or conventional NGV service stations.

Why does NGV retail price vary in each area?
 

PTT has its own criteria for setting NGV pricing in accordance with the Resolutions of the Energy and Planning Office No.5/2002 , and No.7/2007 as follows:

If an NGV Daughter station is located within 50 kilometer away from its Mother station, no transportation fee is added to NGV retail price. If such a distance is over 50 kilometer, transportation fees is added to NGV retail price depending on the distance from a Mother station.

 
What is PTT's policy about change round-up?
 
PTT has sent its notification to all of its NGV service stations requesting for the fair change round-up in accordance with the standard of law. If any NGV service stations are found not to comply with the rule, a customer can notify PTT, Call Center :1365 Contact NGV press 5 for further process of rectification.
 
What does the term "re-printed" indicating on the tax invoice received from an NGV service station, refer to? How many times of " re-printed" can be made per an NGV filling service?
 
The tax invoice with the term "re-printed" refers to a proxy of Bill of lading. It is a kind of document issued to be used as a receipt / tax invoice (ABB) when a customer requests to have a tax invoice, the service station will cancel the receipt / tax invoice (ABB) previously issued, then produces the tax invoice to that customer. If a slip printed from the computerizes POS machine is needed, the service station will issue the customer a proxy of Bill of lading with the term "re-printed" indicating on. Such a term can be repeatedly produced with the number of issuing.
