CNG is produced by compressing natural gas to less than 1% of its volume at standard atmospheric pressure. To provide adequate driving range, CNG is stored onboard a vehicle in a compressed gaseous state at a pressure of up to 3,600 pounds per square inch.
Renewable Natural Gas is one type of biofuel. Biofuels are derived from plant material or animal waste. It’s considered to be easily replenished, which makes it renewable energy. Fossil fuel like diesel is not a biofuel.
The vast majority of natural gas in the United States is considered a fossil fuel, because it is made from sources formed over millions of years by the action of heat and pressure on organic materials. Renewable natural gas (RNG) is a pipeline-quality vehicle fuel. It is produced by purifying biogas, which is generated through anaerobic digestion of organic materials—such as waste from landfills and livestock—or through thermochemical processes, such as gasification. RNG qualifies as an advanced biofuel under the Renewable Fuel Standard.
CNG tanks are DOT-certified.
At about $1.49 a gallon, CNG is significantly cheaper than regular gas prices.
CNG supplements diesel, just like electric, vehicles also use gasoline.
Yes, it improves mileage from straight diesel.
We currently ship to the continental 48 states. We hope to service Alaska and Hawaii in the future.
Diesel engines will gain power and gas engines will remain the same.
Conversion kits include a tank package suitable to a particular vehicle, plus hoses, tubes, fittings, pressure regulator, fuel delivery system, sensors and processors.
By adding a CNG conversion kit, users will expect a longer equipment life and increased engine efficiency. By burning less diesel and more renewable natural gas, you can continue using your vehicle while reducing carbon emissions and lowering fuel costs.
The kit can displace up to 30% of diesel fuel.
When the engine is under a high load, it will use a higher percentage of RNG than when the engine is under a lighter load.
Hypothetical scenario: a fleet of 50 diesel vehicles that drive 500 miles a day with a fuel mileage of 12mpg could produce 1.1 million pounds of CO2 LESS than traditional engines.
Currently heavy trucks running on diesel have no feasible option for being powered by electricity. Electric vehicles have a short range between charges, whereas a diesel can go 1,000 to 1,500 miles. RNG would not affect the distance rate for driving.
