CNG Advantages

Cost Effective. Clean. Abundant Energy.

When you consider all the benefits of compressed natural gas (CNG) and CNG power systems, it's no wonder there are over 16 million CNG powered vehicles that currently travel roads all across the globe—From California’s Pacific Coast Highway to the Jingbao Highway in Mainland China. Products and services are delivered in trucks powered by a fuel that is up to 90% cleaner than either gasoline or diesel. Not only is CNG more environmentally responsible than gasoline or diesel, it is also safer and extremely cost effective.

The more you discover about CNG power systems, the more you'll realize the advantages of maintaining a CNG-powered fleet for your company. It's clean, cost effective domestic energy.
