A major sticking point for automakers investigating compressed natural gas, or CNG vehicles are the large (and expensive) fuel tanks that store comparatively little fuel. Chrysler may have come up with the solution, using a series of smaller tanks inside a larger tank to mimic the human lung, resulting in smaller tanks with more fuel. […]
In Iran, a man was refueling his truck with natural gas, and all of a sudden it detonated. It was blown to bits inches away from him, showcasing why adoption of CNG is a slower, and more regulated process in the U.S.
While America’s energy policy hangs in the balance, one thing both Democrats and Republicans agree on is the exploitation of America’s vast natural gas reserves. According to Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne, if the United States full-on embraces CNG as a transportation fuel, we could reduce emissions and eliminate our reliance on foreign oil in just a few years time.
Few jobs allow for the amount of exaggerating (and often outright lying) that politicians seem to get away with on a regular basis. So when Colorado governor John Hickenlooper says that a coalition of 22 states is pledging to buy around 10,000 CNG vehicles, I can’t help but think “What the hell are you waiting for?”

America supposedly sits on huge natural gas reserves, and automakers seem more than happy to oblige an alternative to oil. Within a day of each other, both […]
On Wednesday, President Barack Obama laid out his vision for America’s future energy destiny, citing shale gas formations as one of many potential fuels to reduce our oil dependency. Indeed, many pundits and economists talk about the natural gas economy. The only problem? The lack of CNG-powered cars in America. Honda was first out the […]
The plug-in hybrid Ram is not going to be built for public purchase. That’s a kick in the balls of taxpayers if you ask me. Instead, Chrysler is considering compressed natural gas, or CNG, to clean up pickup emissions.
