  • I-5 Green Freeway

    Hi to All,
    I wanted to share this featured story from the Seattle Times front page Sunday paper.

    Interesting article. It would be nice to have some CNG along major interstates. The depressing thing is to read the comments from readers about the article . With cheap gasoline and a lousy economy, the public has no interest in alternative fuels--or anything else that may or may not affect their pocketbooks. The oil companies and their lobby in government will continue to hold us hostage to gasoline--until the end of oil .

      This is at least a start - talking about it.
      For the typical NGV (without extra tank capacity) such as the Honda Civic GX, to make it from Vancouver B.C. area to about Sacramento or Davis California, I figure it would require two more CNG fueling stations:
      at about Eugene Oregon, and another in Redding or Red Bluff California. [There are existing stations in Seattle, Hillsboro-Portland, and Medford Oregon]. Heading from Sacramento to Southern California there is CNG along the way but not directly along I-5.
      Maybe a temporary arrangement could be made with State of Oregon and California for use of state owned facilities until the blank spots are filled in.
      Maybe paying ca$h only for the state - no credit card hassles!

        Maybe there is still hope for the state Washington. Western Washington University at Bellingham is working on a Bio-mentane project with cow poop from Lynden -- who knows

            Hey Cowboy, I agree with the 500 mile range comment, but most petrol cars have around a 400 mile range.

            My F-250 will do about 450 on 35gal of petrol and an additional 275 mi on 30 gal of Lp not bad for a 460 running solo
