CNG stands for Compressed Natural Gas, the same kind of gas stoves
Below is essential information on the benefits associated with owning a natural
Fuel ranges from $1.49 and $1.89 nationwide. CNG burns clean: no carbon or acid
going into your oil. And no liquid fuel to wash oil from top piston ring. Result:
engines last so long that shuttle fleets routinely go 300,000 miles and their drivers
line up to buy them. Sparkplugs seem to last forever and oil is still yellow when
you change it.
Save lots of money at the pumps, Natural Gas is a lot cheaper than regular unleaded
gas. You can save lots of money each year, approximately $1 a gallon. During rush-hour,
you can jump into the commuter lane by yourself.
CNG itself is a remarkable phenomenon that has been out in the market for more than
10 years now. It's obvious benefits are clean-burning fuel which does not emit many
of the impurities that gasoline produces. In addition, it is much more fuel efficient
in comparison to gasoline. Because of the clean-burning fuel, it increases the longevity
of the vehicle and maintenance intervals are increased; whereas oil and filter changes
are required every 3,000-4,000 miles on typical gasoline vehicles, natural gas vehicles
require similar oil and filter changes every 9,000-10,000 miles.
Gas vehicles that are uniquely equipped with a clean burning fuel system
(Compressed Natural Gas) enables you to save substantially at the pumps (almost
half the cost of gasoline) while producing lesser emissions & pollutants to
In addition, owning a Clean Burning Fuel Vehicle has many other
upsides & advantages including:
- increased longevity on the car (oil changes every 5,000 to 9,000
- access to the
HOV (carpool lane) with a single occupant (check with your respective states laws)
- engine components remain a lot cleaner with a clean burning fuel
- less wear on critical engine components, bringin the cost of maintenance
- state & federal tax incentives (check with
your states air resources board)
- better fuel efficiency in
comparison to standard gasoline vehicles; and much more.

While we specialize in CNG vehicles, we also offer a selection of Bi-Fuel
Vehcles and Regular Gas Vehicles.
What are some of the benefits of driving a CNG or Bi-Fuel Powered Vehicle?
CNG is available in
and around most larger cities.
More and more cities and even rural areas are recognizing CNG Vehicles as
low emission vechiles. This means you can probably drive in the HOV (carpool) lanes
by yourself and leave those gasoline guys sitting in traffic.
costs roughly, about half what an equivalent amount of gasoline costs.
You will also be doing the rest of us a favor because harmful emissions are reduced
approximately 70% with the use of CNG.
Bi-Fuel Dual Power
A bi-fuel vehicle has two separate fuel systems, one for gasoline or compressed
natural gas (CNG). Because CNG stored in pressurized tanks, cannot be simply pumped
into the gasoline tank.
The bi-fuel design allows the use of an alternative fuel
The need for two separate fuel systems and a storage tank for a
gaseous fuel increases the cost of bi-fuel vehicles and reduces cargo space. But this allows you to run
on your lower emissions fuel while having the safety of keeping an emergency reserve
of regular gas. This is a commuter life-saver.
tank, for example, is about the size of a spare tire.
Bi-Fuel vehicles which can
be alternately powered by compressed natural gas (CNG) or gasoline.
Where low cost
CNG is available, however, bi-fuel vehicles can offer a cleaner, more economical
alternative to gasoline.
CNG is one of the cleanest of the fossil fuels. Compared
to gasoline, its use could bring about a significant reduction in tailpipe emissions
of carbon monoxide (about 70%), nitrogen oxides (about 50%), and ozone-causing pollutants
(about 90%). In addition, particulate emissions would be almost eliminated.
operation with one single engine control unit
Easy switching from CNG to gasoline
Great potential for reduction of untreated emissions
