I can't understand why CNG hasn't taken off in the private vehicles sector. We have so much of the stuff in this country that we really should be utilising this resource ourselves instead of exporting it for peanuts to China and Japan. Countries like Italy, Poland and the Netherlands in Europe have little if, any gas themselves yet they have the largest numbers of privately-owned natural gas vehicles. Go figure...
