Yeah me either. this lady showed me one. a 1999 ford ranger 'electric'. i got pics of the 'engine' and under the rear end. boy is it weird. has the plug in in the grill.

i will post pics later, but too busy right now.

btw chevy sells a Natural Gas pick up now, and last year vans as well.

also, Honda sells a natural gas civic or something.

good luck filling them up tho!

Yep. Ranger EV was not popular, but they were lease-only vehicles. Their production ran '98-'02 and all leases were terminated/ vehicles recalled by 2004. Most of those trucks have been destroyed but some still exist

My brother has the cng Civic from Honda and is officially off of the grid. He now pays $2.xx something a gallon or however they calculate it. Bonus is that he gets to run in the CA HOV lanes.

yes, that is quite remarkable that they are making a honda that runs on cng, as well as last year Chevy made a cargo van and added to that this year with a pickup! imagine no more gasoline! TOO BAD THERE'S ALMOST NOWHERE YOU CAN BUY CNG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (that has a car nozzle)

when you hear about all the BS how we need to get off of foreign oil, they have ZERO infrastructure to support either cng or electric vehiculars. what a joke our govt is. suckwads!

trust me, i live on the I5 corridor in washington and there is one elec. car charging station at the rest stop at Custer, a couple somewhere down south, and one privately owned one at the Burlington Outlet mall. other than that forget it. there is ONE place you can go to get your cng car filled up, 20 miles south of here in Arlington, and that is the only place north of seattle. what a joke.

Bull hockey! It's gradually rolling out and when it hits the Midwest I'm a buyer. It'll be no more $4 bucks a gallon for me.

oh if you don't believe me a quick google search of both e.v. charging stations as well as cng automobile filling sites is readily available online. they are there to help people who have electric or cng vehicles. (and God knows they will need them). have fun and don't cry in your beer too much.

I'm just pulling your chain. But the sooner we get off fossil fuel, the better. Check out a CNG-powered factory five 33 street rod in Google search.

From May 18, 2010!

There are several companies around St. Louis that run their fleets on CNG, most of them installed their own filling sites. They are looking to install CNG stations around town, it's just slow in coming.

and just a small update, but not on cng, but i went to Jack in the Box on Cook Road off I-5 last week and noticed that right next door at that 4 story Inn, they installed, for some reason unknown to me, about 7 or 8 elec. car charging stations! i am not sure if you have to pay to use them, be checked in to use them, or what. i didn't ask. but they have more there than probably the rest of the state put together. maybe they are going to have an elec vehicular convention some day?? but in case you're puttin down the road in Burlington, WA.

Around here, those who want nat gas powered cars can get a home compressor station that refills your commuter car overnite. (way more range than an electric) Lotsa profane - er propane filling sations around, too, as well as quite a few car charging stations with more appearing regularly.

Most taxis are either profane or CNG - very few on liquid gasoline - operators can't afford gas powered ones. A lotta hybrid cabs, too!

Seeing more & more electric delivery trucks - including several post office trucks that are all electric, and many hybrid diesel-electic 5 to 10 tonners.

And then there are the diesels that run on CNG - getting to be a LOT of big rigs on that system, and quite a few city busses, too! (Westport Innovations conversions - usually of Cummins disease-els.)
