Natural-gas powered cars: Who even knows they exist?

“It's going to require some sort of incentive before people go for it”

Imagine paying as little as $1.25 a gallon to run your car. Not for gasoline. Instead, you would pump a fuel that's readily available, North American-produced and virtually pollution-free. Many motorists could ... via USA Today

i know i would buy a car or truck run by natural gas for sure. i am sick and tired of the rumble in the jungle over gasoline and oil prices. we need to start somewhere and this looks like the easiest and the quickest way to me.

I would buy one in a New York minute! Ethanol is definitely NOT the way to go. a drought or blight in the corn belt would drive the price up to the stratosphere. Natural gas is so plentiful it is often burned off at the refineries because there's not enough call or storage for it.

A HONDA that runs on natural gas is so much the better! Dependability AND fuel savings are a hard combination to beat!

We have thoughts about converting our 98 silverado over to natural gas because there is a gas well on our property. Not sure yet, just talks. There is pleny of natural gas now, just like there was plenty of gas back in the 20's. We should be finding ways to rid ourselves of fossil fuels, not finding other ones to use.

The process of making ethanol is that of a distillery. The amount of natural gas used to make ethanol would run an auto the same or more miles than ethanol. It is really a large process and consumption of products and goods that could be avoided if we just ran on natural gas. Just another political smoke screen put up by lobbyist and big gov't that don't really want to move away from oil for a long time. Hydrogen should be heavily considered. When the gov't wanted a nuclear bomb they found a way to be the first, same way with fuels, they do not want it yet, so we do not have it yet.
