Natural Gas Bus in Zigong

1988 Trip to City of Zigong, Sichuan

18. Natural Gas Bus in Zigong, Sichuan

There is an abundance of natural gas in this part of Sichuan. All of the local buses in Zigong use natural gas to fuel. The bags of rubber on the top of the bus contain the gas. The sheer weight of the bag forces the gas into the engine. From time to time the buses stop at a station to get a fresh supply of gas. Certain parts of China have natural gas but China doesn't have much in the way of pipelines to distribute the gas to other parts of China.
