The Advantages of CNG and Natural Gas Vehicles
Did you know that natural gas can be used as a transportation fuel? Compressed natural gas (CNG) is used to fuel natural gas vehicles (NGVs) that produce little to no emissions. NGVs are good for the environment and owners also see savings at the pump.
CNG is a fuel source that is made from compressing natural gas to high pressures. CNG can be used in place of gasoline, diesel fuel and propane in light, medium, and heavy-duty applications with a CNG conversion kit available or CNG engine. Compressed natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel operating today, producing the fewest emissions of any motor fuel.
Calculate Your Savings with a Natural Gas Vehicle:
There are over 100 CNG filling stations across our territory to meet the emerging market demand for fast and convenient NGV refueling. To find CNG stations in your area, click here.
If you are interested in converting or purchasing a natural gas vehicle or installing a commercial CNG station, review our Austin-area or Rio Grande Valley area Commercial rebates to see how Texas Gas Service may be able to help off-set initial costs.
