    The Ford F-150 has been the #1 selling truck in America for over 25 years!

    If they go Nat Gas, then GMC, Toyota and Nissan will follow.

    • The problem is the conversion cost to CNG. It's still $7-$10,000. When they come off the line with a ready to use CNG system, the price should fall.

      • Over on Green Car Reports, dated July 13, 2013, there is an article about Sneate bill S.1355, "Sentate Bill Boosts CAFE Ratings for Natural-Gas Vehicles With Gasoline Backup". Two paragraphs:

        "It also amends CAFE standards to let such vehicles be treated equally to electric vehicles, which natural-gas-vehicle advocates feel have been unduly favored by current EPA policy.

        In contrast, "bi-fuel" vehicles--which would include aftermarket natural-gas conversions added to pickup trucks, including a version of the 2014 Ford F-150 pickup truck with a natural-gas readiness package--are assumed to run 50 percent of the time on each fuel."

        The bill is just introduced so gotta track it whenever those free loaders (Congress) come back next month.

      • Yeah, it's not like Ford is showing commitment to NG as a fuel. They are sort of tip toeing in, and in fact will have no idea how many vehicles are converted. Which, IMO, will be darn few. At this point, I believe the public thinks (A) natural gas is dangerous, and (B) provides lower power - like a gas powered forklift. They are wrong, of course, but that's the image Ford has to contend with.

        Sentiment: Buy
