    I have a question: Can I get my current car converted to CNG and is it worth doing?

    CNG (compressed natural gas) is the fuel of the future. It is easy to manufacture, the West has huge natural supplies, it is less polluting, and engines last longer when using it.

    The drawbacks? the range of the vehicle is less, requiring more frequent fillups. However, when I can drive 150 miles and fillup for $3.50, I don't mind the inconvenience at all!

    My car runs on both gasoline and CNG. When the CNG is used up, it automatically switches to gasoline. The only gas I have used since I bought the car was an out of state trip to the Northwest where CNG was not available.

    My car's fuel costs $0.02 a mile for CNG, $0.12 a mile for gasoline, my pickup costs $0.25 a mile and my motorhome $0.50 a mile.

    The motorhome home is a dinosaur that I want to get rid of. My CNG car is the future.
