dual fuel?

Is anyone driving a Mercedes dual fuel vehicle? We lived in Italy for a couple of years and gasoline/CNG vehicles were everywhere. We had a Volvo that had a switch on the dash that one could choose which fuel to use. The system cost $800 to install in 1998 and worked perfectly.
It would certainly give one an option over gas or ethanol.

Can't go far on cng

Storage tank size and weight limit the use of cng. Propane is easier to handle, but generally has no cost saving benefit. Usually costs as much or more per gallon and mpg is about 20% less.
