The Future is Now
CNG is both the past and the future. Some even believe that it will play a key role in achieving energy independence. Several large cities / companies in the United States have made the switch to CNG for their bus and service fleets. There are a lot more to come. Everyone that switched has learned that CNG storage offers lower weight, higher energy storage and lower costs – as well as faster refueling. They also learned that CNG is cleaner, safer and their fleets require less maintenance.
CNG burns clean. In fact, it is the cleanest burning fuel today. This translates into less vehicle maintenance and longer engine life. Another added advantage is dedicated Natural Gas Vehicles have little or no emissions during refueling. It is a little known fact, but the refueling process for standard gasoline vehicle accounts for over 50% its hydrocarbon emissions.
After converting their vehicles to CNG, fleet operators have reduced maintenance costs by as much as 40%. The conversion has increased the intervals between oil changes anywhere from 10,000 to 25,000 additional miles.
Several surveys have indicated that NGV’s are as safe if not safer than those powered by other fuels. In 1992 AGA survey of more than 8,000 vehicles reported that NGV injury rates per vehicle mile traveled were significantly lower (34%) than the rate for gasoline vehicles. There were no fatalities reported in over 1,800 collisions.
