The case for CNG

Last week, I on electric vehicles in this and I ended it with a note on powered by Compressed Natural Gas It is a cheap fuel to make and which is why it is so widespread in public in most countries. Its prices do not all that much, making it for developing countries as well.

Sri witnessed a LPG craze some back, which has now fizzled out because the price disparity petrol and LPG is not so vast. However, it Sri Lankan motorists a sense of it is like to drive an alternative-fuelled

But CNG is the new kid on the block and it is time that our thought of it as an alternative fuel for transport and even private especially with the possibility of CNG locally. There are several of having CNG vehicles.

The most obvious advantage of all is the cost. It is a comparatively cheap and facilitates high running lower costs. On an average CNG around half or 1/3rd the regular fuel.

A survey in India, where CNG use is widespread, that a Hyundai i10 running on CNG and an level petrol sports such as the Honda CBR250R similar fuel costs for an running of around 50 kms a day.

It is a much greener fuel. The and hydrocarbons that are released as a of CNG usage are lesser than created by regular fuel. monoxide emissions are down by while hydrocarbon levels are by 40-60 percent.

Many that care for the environment and want to reduce air pollution due to introduce CNG fuel in a big way.

The price fluctuation of natural gas is Look back over the few years. While petrol and prices have been on a coaster ride, CNG has had a relatively movement.

contrary to popular belief, CNG is a better fuel for improving life as the carbon levels are reduced. There are a few disadvantages but can be circumvented if you are careful. For example, the performance of the car is reduced significantly.

On an CNG users experience a crash of 10 percent in performance. Acceleration is so you may have to rev the engine more. expect petrol like from CNG and rev more to get it.

The storage is affected as CNG tanks are somewhat Since some cars run on CNG and petrol, two tanks have to be The upside is that the range is better with two tanks, up to Km.

Sometimes boot space is or removed entirely as the fuel tank takes up all the room.

Cars with CNG tanks always be started on petrol and run for a few before being switched to the fuel. This warms up the better and gets the motor lubricated.

There is another why car-makers want to take the CNG as demonstrated by Audi recently its A3 G-Tron model. Most are having increasingly stringent CO2 regulation, European car-makers to have taken note of the that this relatively fuel holds.

The Audi A3 is powered by a 1.4-litre, four petrol engine, along a factory fitted CNG kit. The switches to gasoline operation when the CNG levels run low, but the can also be triggered manually.

claims 100 kilometres of driving consume around 3.5 kgs of CNG. of two CNG tanks the A3 G-tron has manage a world range of over 400 kms on the CNG alone. Combine it with the tank and the range goes up to kms. Thus a single up a month should be sufficient for the driver. Audi altered the cylinder head, injection and the catalytic converter to compensate for the CNG

Skoda too showed a CNG car at the Geneva Show.


CNG developments are thick and fast. An energy in the US has just unveiled a new “green with a garage ready for Electric or CNG-powered vehicle.

KB unveiled its first ZeroHouse 2.0 in Los County, a house that ready for green vehicles an EV charging station and a CNG hoockup in the

The company said a “fuel garage with both an EV for electric and hybrid vehicles and a CNG station for natural gas powered has been integrated into its 2.0.

The newest ZeroHouse 2.0 is the first KB designed to achieve both energy status, and zero irrigation use by a family of four or explained the builder. The ZeroHouse is to produce as much energy as it potentially yielding an electric of zero.

In our region, the best for CNG use is India, where Delhi and are two major cities that encourage CNG powered cars and of public transport including It is a solution that greatly environmental pollution.

Our authorities consider importing a few CNG buses as a run and if it becomes a success, make CNG widely available initially for the transport sector. In the same way duty concessions are granted for vehicles, concessions can be granted for the of CNG kits and CNG vehicles.

Worldwide, companies and scientists are striving to cleaner fuels, including (about which a debate is vis-а-vis the reduction of crops for human consumption) and artificial such as the recently unveiled e-gas.

There is some life in the Internal Combustion Engine and fuels will help the planet, at least until emissions systems such as go mainstream around the world.
