Legendary long-distance natural gas driver Rainer Zietlow made a pit stop in Los Angeles yesterday at the Century Plaza Hotel to speak with journalists and alternative fuel industry stakeholders about his natural-gas marathon tour, the longest in the world. Zietlow plans on completing the Transamerican tour by motoring into Barrow, Alaska during the first week of April. Remarkably, the entire tour will be powered exclusively by compressed natural gas (CNG).
Zietlow began stage one of his world tour by first driving from the Atlantic Ocean (Lisbon, Portugal) to the Pacific Ocean (ending in Tokyo). Stage two consists of a drive from Tierra del Fuego to Alaska. By the end of this road trip, spanning over 24,855 miles, Zietlow and his team will have driven the world's two longest roads – Russia's "Amur Transcontinental" and the "Panamericana" –-all of it in Volkswagen Caddy Maxi EcoFuel, and all without gasoline.
