Your link blew up, but I think I am familiar. The CNG Highway, or establishing the interstate system with a station every 150 miles or so is a great idea and viable step to acceptance and production of more CNG vehicles. Still will take a bucket of money, but it will make bi-fuels very acceptable to the general public, including towers and haulers.

Still don't know how to deal with the bed space constraints though....I need a 10.5' bed!

True dat! I was reading along with interest about CAFE and all of a sudden it turns into a CNG thread.

Back on topic: As CAFE dictates less powerful and lighter weight average cars and TV's, it is quite possible that TT manufacturers will have to make their trailers lighter and more aerodynamic to allow the average vehicle to pull them. Many who pull TT's in western Europe (they call them caravans), do so with only 4 and 6-cylinder power. I have seen and been stuck behind a SOB caravan being pulled by a 1992 Fiat Panda (about the size of the new Fiat 500)!!!! It was slowwwwww and dangerous, but did the trick.
