CNG Advantages

Performance

  • CNG has a higher octane number than gasoline, producing a more complete combustion, better start and smoother drive.
  • The oil lubricating the engine is less contaminated, increasing the times between oil and filter changes.
  • CNG does not wash down the oil film on cylinder walls, providing better and more effective lubrication and extending the service life of the engine.
  • CNG does not form deposits, keeping spark plugs clean and making them last up to three times longer.
  • Because it is a gas, this fuel does not wash down the lubricant on the cylinders during hard acceleration, reducing abrasive wear of metal surfaces.

Safety

  • Natural gas is a gaseous fuel lighter than air, so should there be a leak it will rise and will disperse safely.
  • The conversion kit components have safety systems that air the gas contained in the cylinders should certain problems occur.
  • The quality of the fuel is guaranteed by natural gas distribution companies, and unlike gasoline and diesel fuels GNC cannot be altered.
  • CNG is stored in high-pressure cylinders, making it impossible for air to get in and cause an explosion. This is not the case with liquid fuels, which are stored with atmospheric pressure.

Ecology

  • Natural gas is the cleanest of all fossil fuels.
  • It significantly reduces pollutant emissions and has a positive impact on smog formation in summer as well as on acid rain and global warming.
  • It produces almost no Sulfur Dioxide emissions (SO2) in engines complying with European standards.
  • It reduces NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) exhaust emissions by 50% and carbon monoxide emissions by 80% .
