The natural gas technology company Energtek Inc. has introduced a three-wheel vehicle with a two-stroke engine that has been converted to run on natural gas. Over the next year, Energtek will convert thousands of similar small vehicles with two-stroke engines for identical conversions as part of the company's commercial project in the Philippines.
The converted vehicle is a Yamaha RS100T motorcycle with a locally produced sidecar. The vehicle is now operating on natural gas utilizing Energtek's absorbed natural gas technology. Two-stroke engines powered by gasoline are cheap, but they release significantly more hazardous emissions than four-stroke engines. Many governments, such as the Philippines, are attempting to limit or ban two-stroke engines powered by gasoline. The conversion to natural gas may solve the problem.
