  • Larry Burns of GM supporting CNG [merged threads]

    This item is worth looking at:

    http://www.autobloggreen.com/2008/08...n-alternative/

    If GM decide to properly support NGVs it will be great news for CNG fans in UK and US. There are GM vehicles in Europe with a new Zafia CNG turbo due out in 2009.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could get hold of them.

          Well maybe it's going to be GM to be the first to get on the CNG bandwagon. It's too bad they probably wont be making any dedicated CNG cars.
          They better do something.

            Could GM actually be Hearing Us NGV'ers?

            Here's the word straight from the ONE guy at GM that might be able to help us:

            Larry Burns, VP Research & Development, General Motors

            http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/archives/2008/07/natural_gas_an_enticing_alternative.html

            I would encourage, no beg all cngchat.com members to flood the gmblogs.com URL
            Demanding GM follows through on this NATURAL GAS idea with viable NORTH AMERICAN product.

            They don't really know we are out here, let's change their mind! We also need to correct many of the ignorant posts that the Joe Six-Packs of the world continue to throw out. Like the one I heard yesterday, "You park that CNG car in your garage? Are you worried your Cell phone is going to blow it up?" My reply: Yeah, right. I'll bank on it.

            PLEASE take time to give Larry your feedback. The door's open let's rush in! Someone ought to tell Larry what used Bi-Fuel Chevy's are fetchin' here in Utah!

            This is GREAT news combinedwith this week's report on 118 years' supply of North American Natural Gas. But all the politico's in the world won't bring back our NGV's -- It will only happen if we can convince a major automaker (besides lonely Honda) to take a good bet and restart production of NGV's

            C'mon gang get over to here NOW and let Larry Burns know he's on the right track!

                Here's another version of the article from cnn:

                http://money.cnn.com/news/newsfeeds/...2_FORTUNE5.htm

                I can't see why the american auto makers aren't jumping on the chance to market their larger vehicles by offering CNG versions. It seems like a campaign based on "keeping the American dream" would have wide appeal. The larger vehicles would be ideal candidates because of the space to install tanks with a large enough capacity.....Am I missing something?

                  You'd be surprised how much "Joe Six-Packs" of the world are missing. Go out to that blog and read the public's reaction to Larry Burns' blog.

                  While we "get it" (the benefits of CNG) most of the rest of the USA still thinks that us (cng'ers) all gonna blow ourselves up tonight when we park in our garages an whip out our cell phones...

                  Or they labor in disbelief in thinking we would be better off with LPG (Propane) cause they remember Farmer John down the lane once converted his 1969 F-150 and just filled it up off that big tank down on the farm....

                  Do me a favor -- don't respond here - you are just preachin' to the choir.

                  Go to:

                  http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/archives...ternative.html

                  And tell 'em yourself how great CNG is....We just might get GM to listen!

                  Nah..
