......but I don't think 4500 trucks are gonna significantly impact demand....YET!
IT IS A START THOUGH.
If Obama put as much effort and money into conversions of vehicles to NG and building them for market as he wasted on Solyndra there would be no dependence on Saudi for oil..
There would be no $4 gasoline or if there was we would not need it.
On the mark! Sane, sound and completely logical---something the Administration does not have the ability to comprehend. Don't give up----November isn't over, yet.
Good start. Now if Ford or Toyota would do it I would be interested in buying one.
Oh, boy. I get a new red Chevy 2500 with dual fuel.
I just got in line for a trade!
Hey olddog. Go ahead and call your Ford dealer. You can get F-250 & F-350's with CNG use. And, I know their plans are for coming out with the F-150, though not sure of the date. Ford is using Westport Innovations (got that stock) engines. They have teamed up with Cummins. Ford also has their E-series vehicles available for cng. If I am not mistaken, Ford actually has the most models of vehicles for cng use.
Here is a website you can keep up with where there are fueling stations available and as they continue to be built. www.cngprices.com Just put in your zip code. Agree with you there on those non-bail out companies.
TWENTY or so years ago, the government of Texas had, in place, and in use, a program where fleet trucks should or would use propane in addition to gasoline for their vehicles. The old Houston Pipeline Company was one of those which used it. The had proven and bullet tested tanks underneath their tool boxes on their pickup trucks, What;s so new? Why did this ever go away? If anyone out there doesn't know, propane comes from natgas. Wouldn't the market ease the gasoline demand. Does supply and demand come to mind? Our interests, the price of natgas, might go up and as a result, the price of gasoline might go down. Where are the policy makers? Does GoHaynesville Shale or any of th subscribers ever make their voices heard in Wshington? Do I? Sadly, even with pointed questions I only receive generic, preform return replies.
I thought propane came from crude oil refining. Is it made from methane?
WO, propane can be recovered from produced natural gas in a natural gas processing plant as part of the natural gas liquids. The NGL's are then sent to a fractionator to split it into products such as commercial grade propane.
Gas liquids are also recovered from crude oil and condensate in an oil refinery so can also be a source of propane.
