I'd be very interested in a link documenting that.

Joerg remembered the headline statement if not the details.

That story made a news splash for a few days in 2008:

"What makes it special is what you donít see: tailpipe
emissions that are often cleaner than ambient air."

BTW that was a CNG vehicle, not a turbo diesel or gasoline
engine.

Thanks. That I can believe, especially with the critical qualifier
"often" in the sentence.

That isn't the same case and with CNG the results would naturally be
even more impressive.

I drove a propane-powered Toyota Celica a few times in the Netherlands
in the 80's. It had to be started on gasoline and then switched over.
Once it ran on propane there was no smell at all from the exhaust and it
had essentially 70's engine technology.
