Natural Gas Vehicles
Natural gas vehicles (NGVs) are increasing in popularity with approximately 50 U.S. manufacturers producing close to 100 models of engines for use in light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles. There are 165,000 NGVs operating in the U.S. and that number, along with the number of public fueling stations, is growing.
NGVs have a higher octane rating, are more fuel efficient, have lower operating costs and produce fewer emissions than gasoline or diesel engines. Learn more about the benefits.
UGI’s utility fleets in Lancaster, Wilkes-Barre, and Williamsport now include vehicles fueled with compressed natural gas (CNG). The 18 new vehicles include cargo vans, connect vans, and utility body pickup trucks.
Federal and state incentives, including grants for public transportation vehicles, are helping to make natural gas vehicles a more affordable and eco-friendly option.
