If a gasoline scooter isn’t eco-friendly enough for you and an electric scooter doesn’t have enough range… check out the ProGo 3000 Propane Scooter. Not to be confused with the GoPro camera guys, the ProGo is a Hawthorne, CA scooter shop.
The scooter is priced around $375 and is fully funded on Kickstarter. One standard camping propane cylinder (16.4oz) will run the ProGo 3000’s 25cc 4-stroke engine for 2-3 hours. Read on for details and a ProGo 3000 video after the break.
This is a Kickstarter project that should definitely make it to reality considering they are basically using existing technology and just bolting it together. Either way, it is pretty cool and another commuting option for those scooter types.
