Here is a YouTube providing the answer to the question "What is DME?"
NOTE: This post is more of a place holder for me to follow up and read more.
A blog about energy, technology, and clean tech from my perspective here in the city of Portland.
LUBRICANT NERD ALERTWhen we drove the vehicle I had one thing I noticed. The RPM on the dash lived above 3000. So my experience of training as a driver I was instructed to keep the shifting below 3000 preferably at 2000. It just struck me that given the lean natural gas fuel the engine needs to run at a higher rate to get the same power. Something I will be looking at going forward as I get more familiar with CNG will be checking out oil samples out of these CNG engines. No doubt there is more wear not less though the CNG sales men like to tell us we can extend oil drains due to the reduced emissions going into the oil I am not convinced. No doubt higher RPMs is more heat, more wear, and therefore probably a special lubrication specification if you want to see them exceed 200,000 miles in their life.
Below is the email I received. I wanted to post it for a single reason. To document the day prices went back up without a real market explanation. See OPISnet.com's Editor's email below:

The New York open outcry markets are closed, but some hefty volumes have changed hands in electronic trading and sent overseas crude prices as high as they've been since September 2008
Libya and the Middle East unrest definitely has something to do with prices. But they don't have anything to do with a jump like we've seen. A sustain jump indicative not of risk in the future but of a realignment of Supply and Demand needs. Especially a jump that occurs primarily around a single big day of trading when the US market is closed and no really big information has changed the market's perspective. Lets look at prices during that short time frame.
