EPA's CNG Conversion Fees are a Ripoff

I noticed this little bit in a forum today. One reader commented the high cost of converting a car to CNG (an explanation of why this is is posted here) and linked a report (it's in German, sorry)about European CNG conversion which can be done for 2,000-3,000 Euros. If the federal government wants to get on the global energy playing field, plus get serious about CNG, it needs to seriously scale back those ridiculous certification fees ($100,000 per engine type; do you wonder why CNG conversion is expensive?) and encourage additional mechanics to become certified.
