Properly a pair of red necks with vodka in their blood stream   lol:1
Bet they are regretting the day they though of that idea  ;D 
An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.

Hey where would we be today without amateur experimenters ,
I bet the first cave man to invent the wheel came to a sticky end going downhill
that led to the invention of brakes ,
I have built 3 kit cars , that way you can select the best components , but insurance companies hate them ,

GAS cars ? all cars are gas cars , I have tried propane in the distant past ,
it was cheap to run ( not vehicle fuel tax ) but it was early days ,
it was in a bedford dormobile , (18MPG on Petrol ) I had the same experience as the 2 Russian hero's ,
It stalled at a crossroad ,I didn't shut of the gas , flicked the starter key and BOOM ,
the inside cab bonnet flew off and dented the roof ,just missing my head by inches ,
I just saw it as a learning curve , I can  run a petrol car on a  Propane gas cylinder and a length of flexi tube,  come the revolution I might have to again  :D
