I had heard of LP being used in these applications, but Gap's profile pic confirms that LNG/CNG is already out there.
Doesn't it take something like pressures over 3000psi and/or freezing to keep the gas in a liquid state?
The future could be very bright for the old suck-squeeze-(bang)-push-blow internal combustion engine.
I believe you are right. Natural gas is VERY plentiful today and could be used if there were more re-fill stations available. Recently I seen one station near where I work now offers CNG filing. Another note, will the insurance companies raise rates of there hot diesel trucks or have they already. I see many around here that are driven like a hot rod with loud pipes and rolling black smoke
I hauled ice control sand into the big cities around here in the winter 25 years ago and though we prepped the boxes, some still froze in the box and we had to climb in and chip it out. Man that diesel stink really got my asthma going with those twin stacks pointed right at me..
