Fueling a vehicle isn’t what it used to be. Remember the days when you only had two options: gasoline or diesel? Well, times have changed…and for the better! We now have a variety of options―whether it’s propane, natural gas, or even electric, the options for driving down the cost of fueling a vehicle are improving.
ADVANCEMENTS IN COMPRESSED NATURAL GAS ENGINE TECHNOLOGY DRIVING CHANGE
Great advancements have been made in engine technology to power heavy-duty trucks with compressed natural gas. Since natural gas is still relatively inexpensive, demand for these new engines is increasing, which results in improved fuel costs. The new engine technology is also driving the growth of natural gas and compressed natural gas fueling stations nationwide. Together, this combination is compelling many organizations to run a greater percentage of its fleet vehicles on compressed natural gas and will continue to do so in the coming years.
Not only does this increase result in reduced fleet fuel costs, but a transition to compressed natural gas also means great things for the environment. Natural gas releases lower carbon emissions than traditional fuels, such as diesel and gasoline, reducing the amount of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, and sulfur-based pollutants into the air.
