Re: Propane or alcohol

Good points....anything not installed properly will explode....yes even grain dust/ I grew up in the mdiwest and saw a silo literally take off in an eplosion and travel 1/4 mile.

I just wish the somehow the infrastrucrure to refuel with CNG would move faster, but there are positive signs and people have started talking about it even Obama and thats usually the first step.

Somehow though they will artificially control its price so that it becomes as expensive as oil so the money savings may not be there.
