What about the latent energy in LNG. The LPG cars and conversions do perfom well but being LNG has less than half the latent energy of LPG then at some point it has to equate to a loss of mileage. The one LPG vehicle I had got about 2/3 the mileage of the truck when it was still gasoline powered but with the fuel at 1/2 the price there was a net gain for me. I wonder how efficient the engineers will be able to make the LNG vehicles.

In regards the video, isn't it great to be so blatantly arrogant and so venomously wrong. Just keep reminding them their cars are about 50% coal fired depending on the time of day.

Looks like CNG is going to be the way natural gas goes rather than LNG. Converted vehicles do not preform nearly as well as vehicles with engines designed for CNG. There are over 250,000 already on the road now. The CNG is ignited by a spark unlike the diesel. Check out the link below to see some info on them.

You got it. Just like the cash cow they found in diesel, they will jack up the price of the abundant natural gas.
Yep....who can live on 23 cents per gallon?
Not the rich, so you have to jack up the price to keep the income up.
