The University of Maine Clean Snowmobile Team has pursued an exciting avenue in deciding to
convert a snowmobile in order for it to be powered by compressed natural gas (CNG).

The Clean Snowmobile Competition takes place in the upper peninsula of Michigan
every year in March. The competition allows students of engineering from across the
country to come together as teams in order to modify a snowmobile to run cleaner
than it would on regular gasoline. The current fuels that teams have converted to are
ethanol blends, bio-diesel, and fuel cells.
