Comparison of the advantages of CNG and LNG as fuels


    Natural gas fuel comes in one of two states: compressed natural gas and liquefied natural gas. You can use either of the two for your commercial fleet. But since each of them has distinct qualities, you should choose an option that will work best for you. In the contest of CNG vs LNG fuel, which is the better choice? Let's find out.

    LNG is the liquid form of natural gas. It's produced by first purifying the gas and super-cooling it to -260°F to transform the gas to its liquid state. The liquid is then stored in cryogenic tanks to maintain its low temperature and liquid form. LNG's density is higher than CNG's, so the liquid fuel can provide more power than the same amount of gas. This makes LNG an excellent choice for vehicles that regularly drive long distances and need a more efficient option.

    Compressed Natural Gas is quickly becoming the fleet fuel of choice for smart companies of all sizes across multiple industries. In the next 10 years, U.S. businesses with light-duty and medium/heavy-duty vehicle fleets will double their natural gas consumption.

    Advances in affordable CNG engine technology and an abundant supply of domestic natural gas have combined to create a unique opportunity for these businesses to upgrade their fleets and reduce costs, while also investing for future revenue growth.
