You'll have to contact an International dealer with the VIN# to get more info.

The Gates VIN Decoder doesn't mention CNG.

Are you sure you want CNG? It's either diesel or CNG, not both.

On online auctions, they're often listed as diesel/cng as they were available that way. Something to do with folks not knowing much about buses. They're secretaries tasked with describing mechanical things in a listing.

THere is a tag on the passenger side valve cover that will clearly show which tune it has... But good luck getting an auction seller to look at it!

Lol. No way to keep postings from people. So I guess cng is a different fuel type? Still learning
