Mark Euro Sprinters can not be imported into the states new as to your NAFTA trade agreements ,sorry on that one.
The fuel where are you going to get it it's not the same formulations as LPG that you have in place.
Even if it was bought in on the Grey market, you could not register it on road.
If it was used exclusively off road Daimler USA could arrange that I would think. However I'm thinking of the compliance issues as to the logistics, as to who would maintain it.?

Glad you asked:

Added: Unfortunately, near Ventura California there are only two LNG stations (50 miles away)
...and they're not open to the general public (blue flags).
The situation is better for CNG (green):

I had a hunch you'd change that one but it makes the point ..simply put it's not viable for lack of infrastructures availability to be commercially viable .

Has any body seen this problem before.


That is way i am looking for a new machine and would love to have a gas and natural gas sprinter does any body have any thoughts I live in Califorina should I wait to try to make special request from Mercedes or does any body have connections at Mercedes that I can buy the machine that I want what would it take.

The cost would kill any benefit you would gain these units are subsided by governments to run on public roads.
There are no qualified technicians for the Mercedes GNG or LNG units stateside the engine would need modifications to meet emission regulations when running on gas,
NGT..LNG...CNG.. is not the answer to the silver bullet for fuel dependence in the USA at least not with a gas engine.
If the engine was designed as hybrid diesel direct spark ignition engine, then your half way there for bio fuel efficiency.sdi.jpg
And knock out the speculators playing with Soy and corn stocks on the futures market. of which are heavily subsidized by the U.S government.
