      Look at the other vehicles leaving the gas station. Most were larger commercial where fast performamce and boot space are not an issue.

        we are building cng hot rods now! go to ( hot rod time ) click on the gasser project; it will answer a lot of your questions the process known as gtl is being used for high compression engines in a lot of countries now, but we are held back here in this country by buearucrats, such as c.a.r.b. here in calif. cng will promote up to 24 to 1 compression. we are racers by the way, and emmission mechanics also . the so called engineers out there need to talk to the old racers!!
