Yes, Nat. Gas & Propane powered vehicles are a great idea, but most drivers in Florida (and the rest of the US) can't afford the $4000+ to convert their current vehicles, unless the government gives them about $3000 in tax credits. So, how do we do this?
Auto sales are way down, especially with the less fuel efficient vehicles. I was going to offer this idea for sale to auto dealers, but decided to give it a way for free. If any auto dealer wants to thank me, just convert my two cars for free.
OK, here is the idea: Install and warranty the NG conversion at the dealership so the customers can finance the cost. If they have a good trade, offer the used car buyer the option of having the NG conversion installed and warrantied too. Then advertise that you have vehicles that your customers would only have to pay about $2.50 per gallon to drive. No limitations like Chrysler is having. Not good enough? How about this idea: in addition to the fixed NG/propane tank, have a place in the trunk where you can attach a standard propane tank that you can pick up at many stores. If you run low on NG or propane, you can hook up one of these tanks and get to a normal NG filling station.
Nat. Gas and Propane companies, are you listening? Offer to install a hook up at current gas stations for free (or at cost with financing). How about offering training to auto dealerships in Nat. gas / Propane conversions? Can you see the $$$ in your future?
If you or your business has a problem, and you need a practical solution, ask an engineer. Ask me, I am reasonable and have great ideas, such as this one.
