CNG is the abbreviation of compressed natural gas which is known as an eco-friendly substitute to gasoline. CNG is obtained by the compression of methane (natural gas) up to less than 1% of its total volume. CNG is way safer to use than diesel and gasoline because it is non-toxic and can never contaminate groundwater. Generally, we use this natural gas at our homes to heat water, cook food and to even dry clothes in the dryer. CNG has become more popular due to its extensive benefits for both non-commercial and commercial vehicles.
This compressed natural gas is also known as fossil fuel like diesel and petrol, but it can burn in a way that can significantly reduce vehicle emissions. According to a research report, currently, more than 17 million vehicles are shifted to CNG vehicle conversion. Pakistan is one of the largest markets of vehicles in this whole wide world. This compressed natural gas is stored in a car at a pressure of 200bar in an exclusively designed cylinder for CNG conversion. There are many cars that can run on CNG and petrol both are called bi-fuel cars.
One of the significant advantages of using CNG is that it’s processing into fuel does not need any complicated refining processes or any kind of additives. The quality of natural gas is better than diesel and gasoline as it is odorless, clear and non-corrosive in nature, therefore, it can be easily used as a cheaper alternative to traditional fuel which is used in automobiles. For CNG vehicle conversion, this natural gas is compressed so that it can be stored within the vehicle in order to cover the driving range.
As compared to the traditional diesel and fuel, CNG always burns cleaner and reduces the emissions of carbon monoxide by almost 80% and 44% fewer hydrocarbons are generated. CNG vehicles can run more quietly than diesel vehicles which ultimately reduces noise pollution. The use of CNG is continuing to grow in the transportation industry because it brings a lot of benefits.
If your car is already shifted to compressed natural gas (CNG) or you are planning to convert your car to CNG, then you must take certain steps in order to conform to the safety Code for natural gas vehicles. Most of the local governments and states still have not implemented the rules for the conversion to CNG; therefore, people need to buy more wisely to get a durable and safe CNG conversion system that can meet your expectations.
