CNG bottle fill SW FL?

Hello,

I need to fill a CNG bottle near Port Charlotte, Fl. If need be, I can drive anywhere in South Florida to have this done. We are eventually going to convert to another fuel, but for now we need to make due.

Regards,
Drew

Here is a map with stations: https://afdc.energy.gov/fuels/natura...arest?fuel=CNG

You will need an adapter to refill your tank.

Where can one find and purchase an adapter? It is not hard to find fill stations for vehicles, such as trucks and busses that use CNG for fuel but the fill system will not work to fill the small high pressure cylinders used for cooking on a boat.

150.00 on ebay. some say they are dangerous since the boat tanks are not tested to 3000-3600 lbs. .. be careful out there.
