Natural Gas Vehicles

Powered by WC CNG photoThe number of natural gas vehicles on the road worldwide has nearly doubled to over 8 million in the past 5 years! That number is expected by some to increase ten-fold by 2020!

Natural gas can be used in all classes of vehicles – motorcycles, cars, vans, trucks, buses, lift trucks, locomotives, even ships and ferries.

Natural gas can be used either by converting an existing gasoline or diesel engine, or by using a purpose built natural gas engine.
