When the present design, high compression, reciprocating type internal combustion engine is fueled with natural gas and properly applied, few if any, contemporary heat engines or power sources can successfully compete with this unglamorous workhorse on the basis of economic returns per dollar of capital invested. When appraised from the investors viewpoint, the economics of this combination of fuel and prime mover often are not only favorable but reveal the combination to provide a very attractive investment opportunity, offering materially better than average interest yields after taxes.
