Adapting a car to run on natural gas - Doug Williams pulled into a Shell station in this Vancouver suburb on a recent Friday evening to fill his 1973 Ford LTD for the weekend. But instead of using a gasoline pump, he opened the hood and attached what looked like an air hose to a fitting in the engine compartment.Like thousands of other residents of the area, Mr. Williams powers his car with compressed natural gas, a fuel normally associated with home heating and cooking. Attracted by a price half that of gasoline, he is participating in a project intended to demonstrate that natural gas is an economical, convenient and safe alternative to conventional automotive fuels. -- article is from 1989!!!

Propane is now very expensive. If you use it for a car, you need to pay road taxes, which Mr. Williams did not do. He might get a very expensive visit from the tax people soon.

Propane conversions are very easy on 1970's cars which had no or few emissions junk and used carburetors instead of computer-controlled fuel-injection.
