NGV benefits

Vehicles running on petrol can be converted to bi-fuel. Conversion takes four to six hours and doesn’t require any engine modification. Bi-fuel vehicles run on NGV and petrol, stored in separate tanks. NGV is a clean, safe, economical and convenient alternative fuel.

Natural Gas for Vehicles (NGV) is a safe, cost-effective and eco-friendly fuel alternative for vehicles.Vehicles running on petrol can be converted to bi-fuel: conversion does not take more than six hours and does not require any engine modification. After conversion, vehicles can run on both NGV and petrol which are stored in separate tanks.

There are many good reasons for vehicle owners to convert to NGV:

  • NGV is clean: Harmful vehicle emissions causing air pollution are significantly reduced when motorists switch to clean natural gas. Since it is gaseous in nature there is no possibility of spilling, which reduces impacts on soil or underground water. NGV is cleaner than petrol and can substantially reduce the production of harmful gases:

 

EmissionsEmission Reduction %
Carbon Dioxide 20 – 30 %
Carbon monoxide 50 – 80 %
Nitrogen oxides 25 – 60 %
Non-methane hydrocarbon 50 – 75 %
  • NGV is safe: NGV’s properties make it a safer fuel. It is lighter than air, and hence rapidly disperses into the atmosphere in the event of leakage. It has a very specific fuel-to-air ignition ratio that minimizes the potential for flare-up. It also is neither toxic nor corrosive posing no health risks when handled. The storage cylinder used is stronger than a gasoline fuel tank and has been subjected to a number of tests for resistance heat and pressure extremes, gunfire, collisions and fire. NGV also has a narrow range of flammability making it much safer than other fuels.
  • NGV is economical: NGV has a lower fuel cost than petrol. With regards to maintenance, users will only require two types of servicing: an annual gas system test (visual inspection) and a 20,000km inspection (covered by 2 years or 100,000km warranty).
  • NGV is convenient: The overall lifetime of vehicles increase when using NGV. Both fuel distribution and specific fuel consumption are more efficient when using the system. Engines run smoother and quieter with NGV and also have no problems at start-up.
