Benefits of Natural Gas Vehicles
Natural gas costs about 1/3 less than gasoline and about 50% less than diesel, resulting in sigificantly lower operating costs.
Abundant Natural Gas Supply
Using a gallon equivalent of natural gas means one less gallon of imported oil, which reduces dependency on foreign oil. Natural gas is an American fuel which equals American jobs.
Natural gas produces less exhaust emissions, and also less carbon, than any other fossil fuel.
Natural Gas is Safe
Natural gas is lighter than air, so it dissipates when released. It doesn’t leak into the ground. The ignition temperature is high – 1000 to 1100°F. Comprehensive standards for fuel tank, vehicle and station design ensure safe operations.
