        I have seen pictures of CNG buses in China with "balloons" on top holding the natural gas. But I have never seen them tethered and hanging on by a string. I think its hilarious when he takes out his camera.

              Here are the pictures of the China CNG buses.

              You couldn't pay enough to ride in one of those.

                Speaking of Chinese busses. Did anyone see the footage of the flaming runaway bus in the news the other day (China)? Looks like a law enforcement officer "tried" to stop the bus with his patrol car, to no avail. I sure would like to know what fuel that bus was running on. I had a professor in college that trained mechanics in China on CNG and he said the standards were very lax. I think I would choose walking if I were ever imprisoned there!
