Checked the first reaction:
what's new? Dual fuel systems ( Compressed gas/gasoline) is a long known technology and used widely in many countries and for many years now ( since 1960's...?)
We are NOT talking revolutionary new looks to me as improvements on known systems.
( i used to have a Ford back in 1983, running on gasoline + compressed gas, with a switch on the dashboard to choose between either of the 2 fuels....
I guess that switch is now gone Hi-Tech........)
I think it is relatively unknown in US/Canada, so there's perhaps good potential for marketing these systems.[ Even out here in Middle East these dual fuels systems are installed on taxis in some big cities, to bring down pollutiuon levels ].
For long term investment: maybe......depends how oil prices are going to behave next few years........and matters like the Clean Air Act, Emmission Standards, etc..
