You seem level headed and I like your response. The problem with previous CNG offerings is that the infrastructure was extremely small compared to todays (small) but growing presence, across the USA.
In fact. for some unknown reason (other than perhaps liability that increased traffic could bring w/it) many Municipalities that have CNG fleets that once offered access to the public, have changed their ways and the public is no longer welcome.
If CNG is good enough for government and private fleets, it should be good enough for private vehicles especially given the outcry against regular gasoline.
FORD and other OEMs have NEVER pushed their CNG vehicles. Maybe its time for me to start up some kind of import biz to get Detroits attention, I don't know. Cheaper fuel, less caustic to the environment...I don't get it ! Especially now that the "chicken" or CNG infra-strucutre is here!
I have concluded however, that its cheaper to buy a used PU truck and get it converted to a dual-fuel, so.....guess Detroit misses out, for what its worth.
