Compressed Natural Gas: 99% Cleaner Than Gasoline With 120+ Octane

Why CNG? Compressed natural gas (CNG) is 99 percent cleaner than gasoline. So clean, you can’t even commit suicide in your own garage running it in your CNG car. So clean, that you won’t have to change the oil in your car but for every 10,000-25,000 miles and the octane rating is rated at 120 plus.

Natural gas is running through pipes everywhere, crisscrossing the entire USA. And, millions of jobs could be created to localize those pipe lines to get them into public pumping stations. For decades tens of millions of people have been using natural gas to heat their homes and cook their meals. And now, (actually CNG has been around a long time) with special pumps that compress natural gas you can use it in your car. In fact, you can buy a small pumping unit that can compress NG at home to fill your car. (Clean Energy makes these pumps for home use, it’s called the “PHILL.”) Next spring, Toyota is coming out with a hybrid CNG Camry and Honda has been selling their GX Civic since 2000. And, we need cars and pickup trucks to be converted to CNG. But Congress passed a bill in 2000 making it so expensive to get an EPA certification on every make and model vehicle for converting to duel fuel (gasoline and CNG). More jobs could be created serving these conversions. Natural gas does not have to be refined. Yes, it needs to be filtered and compressed, nor does it have to be delivered, it’s in pipes that are already in the ground.

CNG will stay cheap (cngprices.com) because of the competition hundreds, if not thousands, of NG companies will compete to get your business and they are located right here in the U.S. of A.

Americans are the most resilient people and live in the greatest in the world, so, we need to do something now. Join the Pickens Army (pickensplan.com) and write, fax, call or e-mail your congressmen to get the necessary tax credits and infrastructure to get going on CNG now. (cngnow.com)

  1. It may be cleaner than dirty filthy gasoline but it’s still a fossil fuel, it still contributes to global warming, it’s not renewable and we’d still have to import most of it because we have such a small domestic supply.

    So I’d say natural gas vehicles are a half-assed step at best when a full couple of strides are what’s needed.

    Plug-in hybrid and fully electric vehicles are the way to go. They’re also what we need along with the smart grid to be able to inventory electricity in their batteries to take the intermittent factor out of wind and solar generated electricity.

    T. Boone Pickens has always been a greedy, self-centered, far right wing jerk. His plan is all about making his companies and their friends big money. He has never been a patriot and his motives are highly suspect based on his long public history. I for one am not fooled. Neither was new President Barack Obama.

    If you want to do conversions of existing cars and trucks that make real sense – even though they won’t make Swift Boat Pickens any money – then convert them to plug-in hybrids as Andy Grove recommends and use the drivetrain that professor Andy Franks has proven.
