A South American motorcycle company, Zanella, will sell a small motorcycle converted for compressed natural gas starting in March.
The 150 cc Rx150 will carry two fuel tanks and a 3.5 litre gasoline tank for times when a supply of natural gas can’t be found.
In Argentina, where Zanella is located, compressed natural gas is one-sixth the cost of gasoline.
The conversion will cost Argentinian customers a few hundred dollars, money they’ll make back in fuel savings.
The way most of us eat when we travel on roadtrips, I’m sure there would always be a ready supply of “natural” gas. :grin
Or have an accessory barbecue that bolts onto the tail so you can have lunch on the road.
It’d be nice to fill from the BBQ outlet in the backyard
Not that a 150 would be considered a power house, but any indication of how the NG motor compares to an equivalent gas engine? Would that conversion be applicible to larger bikes?
How dificult would that conversion be to do and manage in Canada???
