The headline on their website is followed by the question “Can it be done?” and, realistically, it probably can’t. But that didn’t stop Marc J. Rauch, the executive vice president and co-publisher of The Auto Channel to write a fairly long explanation as to why it’s what we should do. Even though most of the reasons are fairly self explanatory (gas is expensive and it’s bad for the environment), the first part of his series focuses on what he believes to be a viable option: Propane. There are a few reasons behind this choice – for example, propane is a clean burning fuel, existing cars and trucks can be modified to run on propane, there are already many vehicles in the United States that run on propane, and finally, most propane is manufactured in the US which means it could benefit the North American economy. For a much more detailed review of propane powered vehicles, and Marc’s interview with a leader in the propane industry, check out their site here. What do you think? Can you trust the same fuel that cooks your food to fuel your car?
