CNG Tow Vehicles

Has anyone done any research on what could be done to use CNG for a tow vehicle.

I know a number of threads have focused on the cost of diesel and CNG is a technically viable option, but I don't know what other people have done to look at this.

Here's a good video on the subject just released from the Pickens Plan people.

Thoughts appreciated.....

Many Class 8 fleet trucks are able to use CNG effectively because they have ready access to a regional distribution center. Until the availability of CNG is convenient, I believe it will be some time before this fuel is a generally accepted alternative fuel source.
