Go away, boy, you bother me
Lynn's son goes looking for CNG-powered vehicles and comes away empty-handed:
He asked one salesman about natural gas powered cars and, after acting as if he had asked for a car that runs on fairy dust, the salesmen went to talk to his manager. My son surreptitiously followed him and evesdropped on the conversation. The manager told the salesman, "We could get him one but it would be a big hassle. Just tell him there's a long waiting list."
We don't have a lot of vehicles that run on natural gas in this country, but a couple of popular models have CNG variants, and I've got to believe that if there were much of a waiting list, there'd be a lot more such on the drawing boards.
And at least CNG refueling stations are relatively easy to find, which is more than you can say for fairy dust.Posted at 8:11 AM to Driver's Seat , Family Joules
