GM announced a new bi-fuel conversion kit for Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, that enables them to run on CNG compressed gas. The kit installs on the Vortec 6.0L V8 engine and comes with a single light-weight Type 3 tank in the bed. It costs $11,000 above the MSRP. Question is, will it save you enough money on fuel bills to make up for that 11 grand?

That’s something you will find out after running the car for a couple of months. But if GM really wants to save fuel in this segment, they better start looking into modern diesel powertrains.

The bi-fuel Silverado and Sierra have a range of more than 650 miles with both petrol and CNG tanks topped up. They will be available in standard and long-box, two-or-four-wheel drive in the extended cab models, offering customization for specific needs. To give customers more peace of mind, bi-fuel trucks will be covered by GM’s three-year, 36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and five-year, 100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty and vehicle emissions warranty.

This video should give you a better idea if this kit is worth the money:

“The announcement of the bi-fuel Silverado and Sierra has been well-received among customers, which sends a clear message that businesses are looking for alternative fuel options to meet their needs,” said Ed Peper, general manager, GM Fleet and Commercial Operations.  “The addition of the full-size bi-fuel pickups to our product portfolio is part of our commitment to offer great products, innovative business solutions and an exceptional customer experience.”
