To point out a rather obvious item; if it were liquified, it would be
referred to as LNG, not CNG.

I was considering converting a car, until I looked at the cost and
regulatory issues..

  Starting price, $3,500.

  Only available for a very specific few very recent (2009-2010) vehicles.

  You must use a federally certified package, installed by an authorized
    dealer or the OEM, for the resulting vehicle to be street legal.

  Then, you get to spring for the refulling station...

Not worth the cost or trouble, IMHO. With a round-trip commute to work of
6.4 miles (about 10KM), there'd never be a payback.

If you want to reduce the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,
go plant trees.

Because I have no idea, I'll have to ask one of the guys or do some
research. I drive by the gas company main office where the trucks
are dispatched from all the time. I believe they are using CNG
because their refill station on their lot doesn't appear to have
anything resembling cryogenics. I did come across this:

There are in the UK. You don't need an auto change over .  Why do you
need two tanks?  There exists devices that calls the gas company to
top up the gas when it's low.  Works on cell phone net.  Some weigh
the tank, some have a floating thingy inside the tank.
Even without that technology, they'll come and top up on a regular
basis once your useage pattern has been established.
