The importance of finding a solution to the nation’s current economic and energy challenges is at an all-time high. According to many organizations, natural gas is an American energy answer. When compressed into a transportation fuel, it offers the same benefits of gasoline- and diesel-power, but provides more advantages as a clean, affordable fuel. Emissions from a typical CNG vehicle are much lower than those from gasoline-powered vehicles, and it costs significantly less.
What is CNG?
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a readily available alternative to gasoline that’s made by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. Consisting mostly of methane, CNG is odorless, colorless and tasteless. It's drawn from domestically drilled gas wells or in conjunction with crude oil production.
