CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) vehicles are gaining popularity over other fuel types due to many benefits. CNG is not only a good choice for the environment and your vehicle, but it also is a great fuel from a safety perspective. In this blog, we have covered the benefits of buying a CNG-fitted vehicle over a car running on conventional fuel types.
We all know that vehicle exhausts are harmful to the environment and are one of the major causes of health issues such as asthma, bronchitis, and many other respiratory issues. However, engines running on CNG generate less hydrocarbon exhaust emissions than gasoline-fueled engines. According to studies, compared to vehicles that are fueled by gasoline or diesel, CNG vehicles generate about 70% less carbon monoxide (CO), 87% less non-methane organic gas (NMOG), 87% less nitrogen oxide (NOx), and 20% less carbon dioxide (CO2).
CNG is a low-priced alternative to the ever-expensive fuel types such as petrol or diesel. On average, CNG costs one-third of the price of gasoline. In addition, the maintenance cost for a CNG fitted vehicle is also less. In a vehicle that runs on CNG, the engine’s lifespan increases due to less contamination of the motor oil. Eventually, it results in longer periods between car serving processes like tune-ups and oil changes.
CNG contains fewer hydrocarbons, and it has an octane rating of 130, which helps increase engine combustion and efficiency. As CNG is compressed, enough fuel can be stored in your vehicle to extend your driving range. In addition, CNG is a clean-burning fuel; it causes less wear and tears on the engine.
One major difference between CNG and traditional fuel types like petrol or diesel is that CNG is not in a liquid form. Therefore, in case of an accident, CNG will disperse quickly into the atmosphere, unlike gasoline, which spills and creates the likelihood of a dangerous fire hazard. In addition, CNG also has a narrower range of flammability, which means that natural gas will not burn in air concentrations below 5% and above 15%.
CNG is a more abundant and consistent fuel source than fuels like petrol and diesel, which are already depleting. In addition, it is possible to manufacture methane, which is CNG’s main component, from biological waste and sludge, making it more sustainable.
In conclusion, it can be said that CNG is a cleaner fuel with high calorific and heat value, is low in pollutants, economical, and available in abundance globally. Today, Indian cities can no longer afford to have vehicles releasing high levels of pollutants, and it has become crucial that more and more vehicle owners, including the private ones, come forward to switch to CNG for fuel needs. Making the switch to CNG is easy, even if you currently own a gasoline or diesel vehicle.
