Fuel efficiency for compressed natural gas vehicles can be difficult for the consumer to calculate, as the metric for fuel efficiency in CNG and LNG vehicles isn’t actually miles per gallon (MPGs), but is MPGe — miles per gasoline gallon equivalent.

The CNG Honda Civic gets 31 MPGe, according to federal fuel-economy stats. Natural gas is an odorless, gaseous mixture of hydrocarbons—predominantly made up of methane (CH4). It accounts for about 30% of the energy used in the United States. About 40% of the fuel goes to electric power production and the remaining is split between residential and commercial uses, such as heating and cooking, and industrial uses.

Although natural gas is a. COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is used in traditional internal combustion engine automobiles that have been modified or in vehicles which are manufactured for CNG use, either alone or in conjunction with another fuel such as Petrol (bi-fuel).

CNG powered vehicles are considered to be highly economic and efficient compared to other fuel. Compressed Natural Gas Vehicle Fuel System Inspector When designing the CNG cylinder fit, you should anticipate the worst possible collision the vehicle may ever experience, and visualize how the cylinder will be affected.

Think “safety first” at every step of the design layout and conversion. NFPA 52 provides. How Do Natural Gas Vehicles Work.

Compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicles operate much like gasoline-powered vehicles with spark-ignited internal combustion engines. The engine functions the same way as a gasoline engine.

Natural gas is stored in a fuel tank, or cylinder, typically at the back of the vehicle. Use of compressed natural gas, or CNG, as an alternative vehicle fuel is growing in significance with many city-owned fleets converting to the fuel.

Though not renewable, CNG still holds some advantages over other fossil fuels such as petroleum. Here are five quick takeaways to help you understand the use of CNG as a transportation fuel. Enter vehicle or phrase.
