Natural Gas

natural-gas-vehicleCNG is the cleanest-burning of the commonly used alternative fuels.  CNG can be utilized in both dedicated fuel and bi-fuel (gasoline/cng) vehicles. Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) range in size from passenger cars to municipal buses. CNG tends to be a less corrosive fuel and, therefore, reduces maintenance costs and increases the lifespan of an engine.

Key Market Drivers for NGVs:

Abundant Domestic Energy Supply:

  • 98{7f64623feb15e8ba3e2cc4fa119ce7bf1799c4d1be9e5e533264580cd485c622} produced in North America
  • Development of shale has increased supply to well over 100 years

Reduced Emissions:

  • Reduces emissions up to 90{7f64623feb15e8ba3e2cc4fa119ce7bf1799c4d1be9e5e533264580cd485c622} over diesel and gasoline
  • Inherently cleaner because it is 97{7f64623feb15e8ba3e2cc4fa119ce7bf1799c4d1be9e5e533264580cd485c622} methane (CH4), compared to other fuels with higher carbon content. (Diesel – C14H30; Gasoline – C8H18).
  • NGVs emit 13-21{7f64623feb15e8ba3e2cc4fa119ce7bf1799c4d1be9e5e533264580cd485c622} fewer Greenhouse Gases (GHG) than diesel and gasoline.
