Advantages Of CNG
Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) benefits the consumer, producer, environment, economy, and the US. There is a drastic price difference between CNG and gasoline/diesel, which varies.
The lifespan of CNG vehicles is extended. The combustion of CNG is much cleaner and more complete than gasoline. CNG does not generate carbon during combustion. The cleaner operation of CNG can also extend scheduled maintenance and oil changes. CNG vehicles are much quieter than diesel vehicles. CNG trash trucks can be up to 90% quieter than diesel ones.
CNG vehicles have much fewer emissions than diesel and gasoline. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) found natural gas to emit 20-30% fewer greenhouse gas emissions when compared to gasoline and diesel.
The US has a vast supply of natural gas. Recent technological advancements have unlocked nearly a century's worth of natural gas. New technology has allowed us to tap into shale deposits that were once considered uneconomical to reach.
CNG is much safer in the result of a spill or leak when compared to gasoline, diesel, and oil. CNG does not pool like gasoline or diesel. CNG is a gas (not a liquid) and, in the event of a leak, will rise and disperse quickly.
