The Fuelvapour ‘Ale’ is a sporty three-wheeler that consumes 2.6 liters per hundred kilometers, accelerates to 100km in 5 seconds, and generates 75% less emissions because it runs on a gasoline gas instead of liquid, courtesy of increasing the gas:air ratio from 14.7: to 20:1, with cleaner burning results. It is classified legally as a motorcycle, and seats two in tandem. Future versions of the Ale will likely replace the vehicle’s fibreglass body on a tubular steel frame with one built from carbon fibre. Video after the jump. [GT]
