Eco-Fueler runs on compressed natural gas


    You don’t necessarily have to have four wheels to get on the road and burn rubber. Look at the Eco-Fueler American Roadster.

    It’s a concept vehicle right now, although the prototype is a fully working three-wheeler that has been demonstrated at auto shows. The hook is that it burns compressed natural gas. It has two eight-gallon fuel tanks and gets 70 mpg. You can even fuel up at home, provided that your home has natural gas service and you have 4 1/2 hours to spare.

    Up to three people can fit, although the two in the back seat will get to know each other rather well. And in case you’re wondering, the top speed is 120 mph.

    Mass production is scheduled to begin in October, with the price tag set for right now at US$19,900.
