Natural gas is supplied to millions of businesses throughout the U.S. upon demand.
It is one of the most efficient, cost-efficient, cost-effective, environmental friendly and domestically abundant fuels available.
Natural gas as a viable alternative vehicular fuel is completely compatible with today’s engines. Manufacturers are now producing a variety of factory-equipped, on-road and in-plant vehicles to run cleanly and efficiently on natural gas. In addition, some existing vehicles can also be converted to operate on either natural gas or gasoline (bifuel), without compromising performance, at the flip of a switch. Power delivery between the two fuels is virtually indistinguishable.
The actual costs of refueling with natural gas over other fuels can also be a pleasant surprise. The price of natural gas is usually between one-half and three-quarters the cost of its gasoline equivalent. This can result in substantial savings for commercial vehicles of high-mileage commuters. It should also be noted that natural gas prices have a history of being relatively stable, not fluctuating with daily supply and demand like gasoline. Whether vehicles are equipped for natural-gas only or bi-fuel operation, both time and money can be saved through the use of the convenient, safe and accessible Natural Gas.
Natural Gas is nature’s cleanest burning fossil fuel. When used to power a vehicle engine, it emits fewer pollutants than conventional or other alternative fuels and meets government clean air requirements. Compared to gasoline or diesel, natural gas burns more completely and cleanly, which results in significant reductions in pollution-causing exhaust components such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and reactive hydrocarbons. Soot, smoke particles and irritating odors are virtually eliminated, making natural gas an ideal choice for fleets. Using clean burning natural gas reduces our dependence on foreign oil.
