You have to admit, most of you have wondered about what it would be like to switch to a CNG (compressed natural gas) powered truck. You’ve wondered what it will cost, how much money you’ll save, and if there is even a CNG fueling station near you. Many companies already use CNG vehicles, so is it right for you? This article is here to answer all of your unanswered questions.
Is CNG better for the environment?
Yes. CNG puts out less greenhouse gases and lower emissions than traditional gasoline or diesel engines.
What is the maintenance like on a CNG vehicle?
Because CNG burns so much cleaner than gasoline, the maintenance rate per mile is almost half that of a gasoline powered vehicle. That means up to half of your normal lifetime maintenance cost!
Is CNG as fuel efficient as gasoline?
CNG powered engines are just gasoline engines with a few modifications, so your CNG vehicle would have near the same fuel effienciency as your gas vehicle.
What’s the total cost of ownership?
Upfitting your truck to run on CNG is costly initially, but with gas prices over a dollar more expensive per gallon than CNG you would recoup the initial cost in as little as 2 years! In addition, there are many state-run tax incentives and grants that provide reimbursement of the upfit.
