    I wonder where this is/was? Also safety record? Low pressure in the bags possible an accident would not be catastrophic.

    I am just wondering what kind of mileage they get from a bag?

    One municipality in our area uses busses running on compressed Natural Gas. I remember right after they got them one day hearing a police dispatcher tell all squad cars to watch for bus # whatever. Apparently there was a leak and a streak of fire was following the bus down the street.

    Most of the automakers have Natural Gas vehicles, they do not sell well because of a lack of filling stations.

    Aren't the natural gas ones more prone to blowing up than propane ones? I seem to remember that from somewhere.

    I have not seen a Natural Gas or Propane blowup. There have been some propane fires but never a explosion.
