Benefits of CNG Conversions

  • Natural gas carries higher BTU levels than gasoline due to ethanol and oxygenated fuel additives in the gasoline.
  • Reduce the Fuel & Maintenance Costs Approximately 40%.
  • CNG has a higher octane level than gasoline (125 vs. 90), therefore the CNG combusts without self-ignition and protects your engine from knocking, even on engines with higher compression and efficiency levels.
  • CNG combusts 100%  due to a proper air to natural gas mixture at ambient temperatures.
  • The oil that lubricates the engine is less contaminated when using natural gas and reduces oil and filter changes in half.
  • There are no sediments and the spark plugs are kept clean. Oil on the walls of the engine cylinders are not washed off.
  • Combustion gases are not corrosive. By not damaging metals, the life of the exhaust pipe and silencers is longer.
  • The gaseous nature of the fuel eliminates the scanning actions in the cylinders during fast acceleration periods, with the advantage of reducing the corrosion of metal surfaces.
  • The engine presents great performance flexibility during accelerations without irregularities or backfires, even at low direct speed.
  • Converted vehicles may switch from using CNG to gasoline by simply pushing a button while driving.
  •  CNG gasoline bi-fuel system doubles the car’s driving range.
  • CNG conversions run smoother and more quietly.
  •  Natural gas vehicles operate in all terrains, even across mountains.  For example, a truck with a 37-tonnes load drove above 4,800 meters high in the Peruvian Andes in May 2008.
  • CNG works fine under any climate condition. Since the fuel does not freeze not even at low temperatures the vehicle will always be ready to be used.
  • System is fully reversible and can be transferred to other vehicles after inspection
