yes, propane is compressed natural gas, and converting a diesel engine to run on propane is a fairly easy process.

Natural gas and propane are two separate things, they are not the same! http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-propane-and-natural-gas.htm

"We need to use our huge natural gas reserves to run all diesel trucks. Converting a diesel engine to propane(compressed natural gas) is an easy conversion. And they are making a car in France that runs on compressed air, look it up. Where is our innovation?" That'll never happen. The powers that be don't want us to be free from dependency. Innovation IS happening here at home though, that's why some people are getting 30 to 50 mpg from pickups and why some are getting over 100 mpg from hybrids. Even more is possible with the hybrids than what they're getting now if they did more. You won't see the innovation come out of the automakers, not here, not Europe, not Asia or anywhere. Well, except for companies like Aptera and their vehicles.

D...I did say ya are on the right track with natural gas but, what & how ya wrote implied feeding natural gas into said Diesel motor. Nothing was said about conversion. Being able to run on natural is a good thing.

Diesel trucks can not use Natural gas. They can use Bio Diesel, but not gasoline, nor natural gas.

D...You wrote "Like our huge natural gas reserves to run all diesel trucks" You are on the right track when it comes to natural gas BUT, diesel trucks use diesel fuel not natural gas. THX,NOSOGRN.

"hot air may one day run our cars. they already have a car that runs on compressed air. look it up. " Dude, I think hot air is affecting your brain. Air has no useful energy. Even hot air.
