Despite some recent problems with the natural gas supply from Russia, Germans have an ever-increasing number of CNG options. Rainer Zietlow, a German citizen who just might be the world's biggest CNG fan, started a nationwide tour of Germany's 800 compressed natural gas (CNG) service stations on the 7th of January. He'll be at the wheel of a VW Passat TSI EcoFuel with a direct injection bi-fuel turbo engine and expects to complete the tour in 80 days, just before the AMI 2009 (Auto Mobile International) show in Leipzig on March 28. Zietlow is already a CNG expert, having completed two CNG rallies, one from Germany to Bangkok, Thailand and a tour around the world on a VW Caddy.
