We already have the technology, but for some reason we don't hear too much about it. I thought this was interesting, so I did a little research. The conversions are expensive.
I'm sure you know that there is a difference in LPG (liquid propane gas) and CNG (compressed natural gas)
Here are a couple of articles on the subject.

Thanks, those are very informative articles, and i think it will become more and more feasible, as time goes on. Not sure, we do enough miles, to ever consider it, especially at those steep conversion prices. The gains environmentaly have to considered, a reason alone, to explore it further....

Another excellent business indicator....Domestic Auto Sales up, and consistantly up......June figure's find Ford sales up 7%, G up 17% and leading the pack, Chrysler's sales up 20%......though, on a down note, GM recalled all Chevy Cruzes......

<quoted text>Why would Lutz think that 2300 volts sold in a mouth is good...he is clueless. How about twice that many units in 38 minutes.....Prius! That the mentality of the domestic culture. Only in America, not worldwide. That will be their downfall....oh, wait to late!!!!
The domestic sales stats are exaggerated.......the bailout was a failure!!!Its no different than the airline bailouts and train transport. The govt will not allow such important entities to fail. Domestic autos are going to fail.....its written in stone!

Sales stats are taken from state registrations....virtually impossible to fake or exaggerate....each state would have to be up to it....

Last month, all three american automakers saw increased sales...yet, Toyota has likely finally recovered from all their recalls and their earthquake, and may be ready to take back the #1 position, in the world.....
