If natural gas refuelling stations were available across the US, would you get rid of your gas burner and get a natural gas hybrid, or a natural gas powered vehicle?

After checking out all the facts, if they indicated it was a proper thing to do then I would consider it.

I would think about it, it might be the way of the future, but I also want it plug in.

Problem at the moment is where do you fuel it.

If I did, where would I refuel it. There is basically no infrastructure to support these types of vehicles at the present time.

Certainly. As long as I could reasonably refuel during road trips, I'd have no problem with it.

Well, a natural gas powered hybrid does seem to cover all the bases but from a practical standpoint, you have to have a car that can run on gasoline as well unless you're going to restrict the car to areas where natural gas refueling stations are available.

Making room for a conventional gas tank, a tank for CNG and a battery pack seems to be a tall order.

Probably yes if the premium for the vehicle is not too much and if the was an infrastructure to support it. There are only two CNG stations in the whole state of MD. (ps. I am really hoping that the latest hydrogen trend works out and now that some manufacturers are coming out with hydrogen vehicles, now there will be a reason to build a hydrogen infrastructure. The egg is being laid (hydrogen vehicles) now the chicken part (public hydrogen stations) needs to be built out.)

In a New York minute....if it was around the $22,000 mark. Not going to pay 30 or 40 grand for one.

The CNG car/truck prices have to come down significantly for me to be interested. $7,000 to $10,000 is way too much of a premium to pay for a CNG vehicle.

Nope - However, I would evaluate the options available at the time some day in the future when I might need to replace my current ride.
