Driving Change With Natural Gas

 

Concerned about U.S. dependence on foreign energy?  What if we could make a change and start now?  Communities across our nation and leading U.S. companies are driving change with American natural gas.

 

The Safety Of CNG (Compressed Natural Gas)

 

Compressed natural gas (CNG) is a clean, affordable fuel that has been used in vehicles for decades. With its popularity surging among fleet owners and consumers, more people want to know about the safety aspects of CNG. In this video Stephe Yborra from NGV America navigates through the safety and realities of driving a natural gas vehicle.

 

What's Under The Hood Of A CNG Vehicle

 

Natural gas vehicles have horsepower, acceleration and carrying capacity similar to that of their diesel and gasoline counterparts, but there are big differences as well. In part four of our CNG Now! education series, we show you how CNG tanks can actually be safer than those used in gasoline-powered vehicles and how dedicated NGVs and bi-fuel vehicles can have a lower rate of maintenance and cost less to repair.

*Since this video was created, CNG Bi-Fuel Conversions in some cases now cause vehicles to gain better mileage & power compared to regular gasoline vehicles. Plus, we no long reprogram the factory computer, we install a standalone computer that works along side of your vehicles computer.

 

Technology of Compressed Natural Gas

 

The technology behind compressed natural gas (CNG) as a vehicle fuel is easy to implement. Along with the economical and environmental benefits, new innovations are increasing public interest in the fuel.

 

Natural Gas: Versatile Energy

 

Most people know natural gas can be used for stove top cooking and grills. But many don't realize just how versatile this abundant, domestic resource really is. The same energy source you use to grill your steaks is also used to generate electricity and is increasingly being used to power vehicles, including fleets of taxis, city buses and even heavy duty garbage trucks.

Utility companies are more often choosing natural gas for a number of economic and environmental reasons. When used for electric power generation, natural gas emits half the carbon of coal. And it has virtually no emissions of other pollutants , such as mercury or sulfur dioxide, that impact air quality in our local communities.

We are seeing natural gas being used more and more to power vehicles as well. It's far cleaner than traditional fuel options and supplies enough power to fuel even the heaviest vehicles on the road. It is also more affordable and produces less wear and tear on engines, reducing maintenance costs.

And that's not the only good news: Consider that natural gas is found in abundance in North America. In fact, the Unites States is now seen as having more natural gas than Saudi Arabia has oil. Producing and utilizing this valuable natural resource would mean more environmental benefits, more domestic jobs and less reliance on foreign energy. The best part is that this resource is ready now!

Natural Gas: Clean Transportation

 

Americans have always been driven, especially when it comes to taking to the open road. Every day, Americans drive or ride 250 million cars, buses and trucks - and those vehicles use a lot of fuel. In fact, our nation imports more than 10 million barrels of foreign oil a day. It's used, in no small part, for transportation. Some of this oil comes from countries with interests that run counter to our own. This makes a compelling case for each of us doing our part to advance greater U.S. energy independence.

How do we drive this change? A key part of the answer is cleaner vehicles that use domestic fuel, including abundant American natural gas. With 98% of the natural gas used in North America found in North America, it makes sense to use this domestic energy to power more of our nation's transportation needs. Nat gas can make an especially significant difference among large transportation fleets that operate some of the busiest and heaviest vehicles on our roads today.

When used for transportation, nat gas is 25% cleaner and 40% cheaper than gasoline or diesel. It also reduces smog-producing particulates by up to 90%.

Now, natural gas filling stations are popping up all over the country as more cities and leading U.S. companies embrace natural gas vehicles. A cleaner environment, growing energy independence and less money spent at the pump....natural gas is a smart choice to help our nation go the distance for a cleaner and more secure energy future. It's just one more reason it's time for nat gas now!

 

Market Development For Natural Gas Vehicles

 

With lower fuel cost and less emissions, many automakers and fleets are turning to compressed natural gas (CNG) as a vehicle fuel. Even though the fuel has been used in this capacity for decades, increasing prices of gasoline and growing concern for the environment has reignited interest. In this video we talk with Kathryn Clay, the executive director of the Drive Natural Gas Initiative, and Stephe Yborra, the director of market development at NGV America, about the growth, development and future of CNG in America.
