Keep talking about this. We need more dialogue on alternative fuels.
As long as gasoline is as cheap as it is, the alternatives will not take hold
Could be worse -- you could have an electric car with a range under 100 miles
and recharge time of several hours.
I would LOVE to have the option of converting my car to CNG, particularly if it
could be a dual use (gas and CNG) format.I've heard of some vehicles
with that capability but haven't been able to find anyplace that can do the
conversion.In fact, I understand that because of very stringent
(many would say unnecessarily stringent) regulations, there are now fewer places
that do that kind of work than there were 5 years ago.Considering
the many advantages of using CNG, it seem utterly idiotic that the government
isn't doing more to encourage rather than discourage its use.
@samhill I agree. Would like to add to my second vehicle a dual
usage (gas and CNG) capacity. You drive on either CNG or gas. You can use CNG
until tank is empty then switch to gas. I would never go with CNG alone.Cost to add CNG, I hear, is about $2,000.
They have carbuerators called Tri-Fuel systems.They are frequently
installed on power generators.Gasoline, Propane and Natural Gas.The technology is there - has been for many many years.Cheap and
reliable.SOME businesses just don't want you to know it, or have
access to it - that's all.
