No offense, but that's likely crappola. If it's true, why don't methane powered cars/buses go forever on a thimble of gas? And you're quoting Jesus in your technical release?
Come on buddy, sober up.

Knowest this--thy modern heavenly vehicles deliverest fuel by electronically controlled fuel injectors. Carburetors are banished from God's Kingdom. So be it.

Sounds like the article writer is another 'Sybil' case, flipping between alternative personalities.

I vaguely recall that such mileages are possible with a completely pressurized fuel system. But beyond high expense, the engineering difficulties involved low fuel capacities, very difficult refueling procedures, and the vehicle exploding like a Hollywood fireball in an accident. But other than that, it worked fine.

While I fail to see the point of mispellings since no one but you bought up the issue, perhaps you believe that "carburator" is a correct spelling. Makes you wonder about a person who's promoting something he can't spell, doesn't it?
-- Jim Cooke (JJCooke@yahoo.com), April 27, 2000.
Mr. Cooke, the answer is a resounding "NO"! I am old enough to have seen Heavens' talents placed in the most unusual places. Want to talk about that almost toothless old time mechanic who fixed my auto for a small sum, and before him, I had the auto big guys who charged me large sums, and da thing still wasn't right. Heavens' talent is dispersed, here and there, in my humble opinion. Too bad, my earthly talent isn't consistency nor accuracy in spelling.
-- Human (Seeking@nother.com), April 27, 2000.
Mr. Cooke, you baited me, I fell. Good Show! Wonder if any others will pause to watch.
