Switch to CNG


Switching to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a smart choice for your business, the environment and the community. By converting to CNG as a fuel source, you can reduce the environmental impacts of your operations, stabilize long-term fuel costs, support the Pennsylvania-based natural gas industry, and build a cleaner, more sustainable future.

REDUCE AND STABILIZE YOUR COMPANY’S FUEL COSTS.
Not only is CNG cheaper on a per gallon basis (typically between 30-50%), it also provides a more stable platform for yearly budgeting. Since the price per gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) for natural gas is comprised of approximately 15% raw commodity, whereas the price per gallon for petroleum-based fuels is typically 50% raw commodity, gasoline and diesel fuels are impacted substantially more by market fluctuations than natural gas.

IMPROVE FLEET SAFETY AND EFFICIENCY WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF CNG TECHNOLOGY.
CNG is an extremely safe fuel. Unlike conventional motor fuels, it vents into the atmosphere as opposed to pooling on surfaces. As such, CNG “leaves the scene” of accidents if onboard tanks are penetrated. Furthermore, CNG engines are quieter than conventional diesel and gasoline engines, significantly reducing noise pollution.
