Fill 'er up naturally

The Altoona Mirror -- DUNCANSVILLE - Local motorists and businesses who would like to drive natural gas-powered vehicles soon will have a place to fill 'em up.

AR Natural Gas Fueling Systems of Altoona announced plans Tuesday to install a compressed natural gas filling station on property owned by Imler's Poultry along Route 764 near here.

"We are looking at the first quarter of next year to be up and running," said partner Aaron C. Ritchey. "The No. 1 question people have is where will I fill up? We are providing that."

Using natural gas in a vehicle can provide significant savings.

"By using natural gas, you can save 20 to 30 percent on your fuel costs," Ritchey said. "A lot of materials are delivered to us by trucks. When you lower their fuel costs, that means savings to everyone."

I have heard talk of this natural gas/diesel fuel engine conversion before and I would love to learn about it in more detail.

How many drivers, who barely make a living these days, will want a system which pays for itself in 18 Months? Not many.

Until the providers decide to raise prices and play games; just like what happened with oil.

Enough said. And the reverse is also true, the price of fuel goes up and so does everything that is delivered by fuel.

A step in the right direction. Infrastructure is necessary to become successful.

Low prices are another important part.

My question is where can we buy a vehicle to use natural gas. I know I can go on line to find out what might be out there... but if they are being made for purchase... why do we not hear more about the availability of natural gas vehicles?
