As it's the VW thread ... this is my first VW.

VW eco up!

Nothing special, aside from the fact it runs on compressed natural gas
Or biogas whenever available (outside of Belgium)

Between the rear wheels, under the slightly elevated trunk bottom
There's no well for a spare tyre

2 steel tanks for 12kg

They're blue (and a bit too far forward) in this X-ray drawing

I could have never guessed it was a dedicated-CNG. Doesn't it have at least some small jug for a small amount of gasoline to enable a limp-home mode or to find a CNG station?

most CNG-cars run badly on gas when cold but IDK, at least a tiny tank should be there somewhere to start it on gas first
